Today 25% of us are obese!
And according to studies, if we don’t do something drastic to change this, 50% of us will be obese by the year 2050.
After smoking, obesity is the leading cause of premature death!
A lot of this has been blamed on our food, the sugar (hence the much talked about and controversial sugar tax), the fast convenience takeaways, chocolate, fizzy drinks et al.
Yes, the price of good quality food and a squeeze on our time does make the cheaper fast foods more attractive. But is it all to blame for this fat epidemic?
Yes, we should eat a more balanced diet and cut down on the sweetened and fatty fast foods, but if you think about it sensibly it cannot be possible to just blame it all on the food.
No amount of tax will fix this!
Our modern lifestyle has just as much (if not more) to blame for this obesity crisis. Too much sitting around, communicating through plastic, the TV/PC/Phone/Tablet is king.
It starts at school, it’s all about the SATS, forgetting less PE leads to FATS!
It’s a pretty simple equation, what goes in equals what comes out!
We need to move more, every day! You don’t have to join a gym (but it can help), just get up and go out. Go for a walk or a bike ride, go out to see your mates instead of using a screen, do some sport or join a club.
But whatever you do, start doing it NOW, before you become a statistic!
Inside everybody there is a fit person trying to get out. We can help you find yours so come and say hi and start your new life today.
