One Difference Between Being Fit or Obese

How do you explain the startling statistics describing the rise of obesity in this country and worldwide?

There are two primary drivers for this phenomena: first, lack of education and second, fear.

The choice that we make subconsciously to be obese or to be healthy represents a small choice. It represents the choice between living in fear or living with courage.  Your life is your choice. With courage, you take control of your life. Take a look at your health.

“They” don’t care if you’re fat. The government’s food recommendations are certainly not going to help you. And, you been inundated through your entire life with misinformation provided by people who make money off of your poor health- the advertising you been exposed to is effective. Nearly everything you are sold through advertising, television, & media is made to do one thing– separate you from your money. They don’t care whether it’s high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), they don’t care if it’s trans-fat, and they don’t care if the amounts of sugar are so massive that it throws your body out of whack. They care about one thing: Getting your money into their pocket as quickly and as cheaply to them as possible. You’re working for them!

So what can you do?

Don’t take anything for granted and don’t take anyone’s word for it-develop the courage to live your life! Research, investigate, and use your drive and skills to find out what really works- for you. The information is out there. Professionals who have spent their lives finding out what really makes us healthy and unhealthy are out there. Information that will change your life is out there.

So why don’t we make use of it?

Fear. In some ways being healthy today means going against the established precedent of the population at large. You have to move against the grain. Can you do that? Can you follow your path to health? Many people cannot. They have given their personal power over to society at large. The determining factor in creating a healthy life is whether you face fears and use your intelligence to change your health. You don’t have to be fat or unhealthy. You choose to be either by ignoring your ability to educate yourself and to determine what direction your life goes in. Can you face the fear of going against a large part of society? Can you eat differently than your friends and family? Can you make different choices than what you grew up with? If you’re obese and you can’t, you are choosing to live this way.

Different results, change, requires doing something different than what you’re doing right now. Every one of us has the power to change. We have the power to create a life filled with abundance, health, vitality, and love. But, the ways to these treasures are often quite different than what we were taught growing up.

You can claim your life today. Start with your health. Start by choosing the path that nurtures the wonderful being that you are. Educate yourself. Face your fears. Make a change starting today. Time will go by and these small changes will build upon each other.

You can create the life of your dreams.
