Health and fitness industries are among the most lucrative industries in the world for a few very good reasons: A) lots of people want to be fit and stay healthy, and B) most people have no clue how to do so, and will buy just about anything they come across that promises miracle results; of course, one of the main reasons why “miracle results” are what so many people go after is that they think it is too tough to get fit and stay healthy without miracle results – but once some of the big “health and fitness” myths are broken apart for you, you will realize that this is not at all the case!
Eating healthy is tough to do: This myth exists largely because of the fact that, quite frankly, most people have put their bodies in a position where they are so used to bad food that it is difficult to make the switch early on; one thing to realize, however, is that your body actually desires healthy foods, and once you get past the first couple weeks of staying away from food that is bad for you – that is, once you get this bad food out of your system – your body will actually crave healthy food, which will make it very easy for you to eat the right way.
Staying fit is no fun: This is another big one, as people think of running long distances or spending countless hours in the gym in order to get (and stay) fit, and while they might be able to keep up with this for a little while, they have no hope of keeping up with this in the long run; the truth is, however, that there are actually a lot of enjoyable ways to stay fit, and once you start finding some that you enjoy yourself, it will be very easy (and fun) to keep your body in great shape.
I don’t have time to stay in shape: A lot of people pick up this excuse because it is easy for them to convince themselves that there is no way for them to lead a healthy lifestyle with how busy their work and family keeps them, but actually, there are plenty of small things you can do throughout the course of a regular day that will keep you healthy and fit, which pretty much nullifies this excuse!
As you get older, it’s impossible to stay fit: It is true, of course, that our bodies change over time – and it is certainly more difficult to stay fit as you get older than it would have been when you are younger – but you should also realize that our bodies are extremely adaptable and resilient, and if you take the proper steps (all of which are truly very easy), it will not be difficult at all for you to keep yourself at a good, healthy weight, and for you to keep your body in great shape.
