Obesity Prevention Tips # 1 – Walking

If you are obese, chances are that you live in an area that is not very walking friendly. Going from one store to the next requires a car.

Sell the car. The car is the bane (that which causes ruin or woe) of all obesity.

Move to a metropolitan city with big sidewalks. The Northeast ranks high with some of the fittest cities. (Scan the picture of times square, how many obese individuals can you count?)

Metropolitan areas make owning a car next to impossible. Retrain yourself to rely on walking to your destinations instead of driving where you sit for hours without any type of activity.

Humans are transient beings. If you sit around too much, fat will automatically gather around your legs and much more.

Obesity Prevention Tips # 5 – Watch TV Standing Up

Invite your friends over for the super bowl party viewing on your brand new flat screen television. Invite your friends over to watch a newly released DVD.

Only this time, don’t tell them you have put away all the chairs, and they will have to watch tv standing up.

Now you are going to have better conversations, because they will be hardly paying attention to the television. Also, everyone will thank you for being such a gracious host to think about them and helping them lose weight while watching TV.
