We live in a world where half the world is starving and the other half of the world is obese. In the past, people would actually point it out when someone was getting obese and this would serve as motivation for them to lose some weight. However, in this day and age of political correctness, it is considered very rude to speak of a person’s weight and the trend is to tell people to be proud of their bodies and their body weight even when it is extremely high. The media is on one hand promoting the concept of the “perfect body” which does not exist because everyone comes in all shapes and sizes and on the other hand, society is telling obese women and men to take pride in their obesity which makes them less than motivated to work out and lose weight.
Switching to a clean, healthy diet
The first step to losing all of that unhealthy weight is to avoid all of the unhealthy junk food and to switch to a clean healthy diet. It is something that is considered difficult in this day and age because most young people live very busy lives and the thought of taking the time to make their own meals seems almost impossible however, if there is a will, there is a way. When young people work out and get in to body building to help them lose the extra weight and to put on muscle, they take various protein supplements however, if you maintain a very healthy, protein filled diet, you do not necessarily have to take all of these extra things.
There is a myth that protein comes from meat and dairy and that one cannot get enough protein on a plant based healthy diet but this cannot be further from the truth. It is perfectly possible to get all the protein you need from beans and other plant based food that makes it unnecessary to use bodybuilding supplements.The human body was made to have a lot of exercise on a daily basis because if we were living in the jungle as we were meant to, we would need a lot of energy to search for our food and for us to fight of predators and enemies.
This is the reason that our bodies store so much of energy in the form of fat however, our present day lives do not give us any exercise at all which is why all of that fat stays in our bodies and continues to build.
