Spend a Few Minutes of Your Time Everyday to Keep Fit

By Randy Collins Subscribe to RSS | January 26th 2012 | Views:

Charles Darwin spoke about survival of the fittest. Maybe he had insight into the future and knew that people would need to keep themselves fit simply because of their changed lifestyles and food habits. Primitive man had to fend for himself on a daily basis. He had to run, jump and hunt in order to have a square meal for the day. The meal though was well deserved and there was a balance in the calories spent and the calories gained, with the former being in excess of the latter. The medicine men of that period had little else to do other than practice their trade on a limited number of people as most of them were absolutely fit due to the rigorous exercise they had to have almost every day. However, the only patients they got were not ailing but would have been injured either in a fight for supremacy or during the course of a hunt. The only flab and fat were found in the dear, wild boar and bison that he hunted because obviously he was fit enough to hunt them down.

The very unfortunate thing though, was that man possessed superior intelligence which he put to good use. He started spending his energies in concentrating on devising ways and means to improve his hunting skills and subsequently reduce his physical exertion each time he went out to hunt. It was a laudable achievement indeed. Sadly, though, reduction in physical activity started taking its toll. Hence the cleverer he got with his ideas and inventions the less the physical activity. This disproportionate ratio led to Comfort and inactivity resulting in less energy being expended with the net result of perfect physical fitness taking a toll.

What ails the majority of the population today is excess flab resulting in a high percentage of the nation becoming overweight and obese which has led to disorders like diabetes and hypertension. Left undetected and untreated this leads to serious conditions affecting the kidneys and the heart. Studies and surveys reveal that the most common killers of today are diabetes and cardiac diseases. The sad fact is that these disorders cannot be cured and can only be reversed to an extent. The best and only solution therefore, would be to prevent the onset itself. How does one go about it? Does a person have to starve himself and deprive himself of good food and comforts which he has fought all along to get in the first place? Instead of a win-win situation what has been achieved is win –and-consistently lose situation. That was not the way things were meant to be.

All is not lost – yet. After all if we were smart enough to get ourselves into this situation we should be able to get out of it as well. Let's take a closer look. For example, imagine filling gas in your car that has a gas tank of 5 gallons capacity, and 5 gallons have been pumped in and the pump is not stopped, what happens? The stuff just flows out onto the ground and the matter ends there. However whenever we consume more food than is actually required, the excess food is not thrown out right away. Just as man is highly intelligent, his brain also has the capacity to make its own decisions. When it realizes extra energy is available, it immediately starts the process of storing it all over the body as reserve, only to draw upon in times of need. The brain is not clever enough to realize that such a situation is never going to arise and its main function henceforth is going to be finding the space to store excess energy. Now, there are some exalted souls who foresaw exactly such situation and devised a set of physical exercises combined with dietary habits that need to be followed with great diligence. If this can be managed regularly without fail any condition can definitely be reversed. Separate time slots have been allotted for programs devoted to demonstrating a set of simple fitness exercises. These are being aired by most service providers like FiOS Bundles
