No quick fix in battle to healthy life
IF YOU had a dollar for every fad diet or exercise plan doing the rounds you would certainly be a rich man or woman.
In these columns I have previously argued that the issue of weight loss has been clouded by those purporting to have a secret fix for it; an easier way out that somehow doesn’t involve getting off your backside and exercising.
What I like most about today’s story featuring truck driver Reuben White (see page 4) is that there is no secret formula offered for losing 40kg.
Reuben simply reached a point where he decided he didn’t want to keep living the way he was living, so he changed it.
He went to the gym twice a day and he started eating different food.
I suppose it sounds easy on the face of it, but for those of us that have been in that situation, we know it isn’t.
Swapping to a healthier lifestyle and getting into the habit of regular exercise takes dedication that too many of us let fall by the wayside.
