Unhealthy Weight Loss

People say don’t lose weight unhealthily

Like what? Exercising and eating less?

What’s a healthy way to lose weight? One burger instead of two? A 12 oz soda instead of a two liter? 

How about this, if it’s working for you, you honestly feel good and can keep it up, then do it. 

The worst part is when people who don’t have what you want are telling you how to get what you want. Copy the successful people, disregard the rest.

Relationships

If you’re happy alone why settle for anything less than happiness? Constant fighting seems like a bad life. 

I think millennials are going to marry less often but stay married for a longer time and divorce rates will drop. Is it better? I think so. I’d rather see a world full of people that stay together for love rather than obligation. 

What about the lonely people? I don’t know, is it more lonely to be alone or with someone that you’ve lost connection with years ago?

Exercise and Eating Better

For yourself, for the people that care about you, and for the people you care for. Exercise and eat better. 

When will you fight? 

I’m not saying be perfect or that anyone is. A necessary step in reversing a problem habit is to stop doing the behavior. If you don’t exercise, going from zero to once a week is mathematically infinite times more exercise. A 500 calorie a day habit is one pound of fat per week. The body is complex and you probably won’t lose 50 lbs in a year from cutting that out but it’ll probably be at least 40. 

In a years time a year will go by no matter what, so what will you do along the way? Hit the gym 50 times or zero? Eat that junk food everyday or leave it to once a week? Your life, your call.

Keeping It Off

If I’m telling someone you have to find out what works for you, when trying to help them better themselves they probably have to do something new.

Let’s talk about losing weight. If someone has lost weight before then losing weight isn’t the problem, keeping it off is. When it comes to keeping the weight off, they might not know what works.

So, they have to seek outside help. Maybe it’s embarrassing. But really, asking for help or seeking it is one of the most human things we can do. You have to change what you’re doing to change what you’re getting.

Healthcare

Is it something that everyone should have access to? Yes, but not in its current form. In its current form, it’s largely ineffective. 

Why is it okay to abuse our bodies by ingesting chemicals and food like products until we’re sick? Why should this behavior be subsidized by other people on insurance plans or even by force via taxation?

The problem isn’t healthcare, it’s that we don’t care. We call critics shamers and whistleblowers conspiracy theorists. While preventable deaths outnumber murders by at least ten to one, which do we focus on? 

People say that it’s their choice when it comes to food but have no problem with people being caged for narcotics. I’ve already explained how sugar is a drug. Heart disease kills 600,000 Americans a year. Cocaine kills 14,000. 

As long as healthcare means pills and not lifestyle alterations, what are we really doing?

Processed Sugar is a Drug

The definition of a Schedule I Drug in the U.S.
  1. The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.
  2. The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical treatment use in the U.S.
  3. It has a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision.
Sugar’s application 
  1. The way people consume it to excess is evident by our health issues and its wide use in many food items. Once you start eating sugar it’s hard to stop. It's readily available with no age restrictions.
  2. Processed Sugar doesn’t promote health at all, Sugar is toxic in the blood stream which is why the pancreas produces insulin, which prompts cells to absorb blood Sugar for energy or storage.
  3. I don’t know any doctor that would see a symptom and say, "Processed Sugar is the solution."
It’s clear to see how this qualifies. I’m not saying it’s only Sugar that’s causing our health issues, but as with almost everything, there are multiple causes. The number one reason for preventable death in America is heart disease. Obesity and nutrition are causes for heart disease. If we want to solve our problems we must go to the source.
