Healthy vs. Fit - Being "fit" does NOT mean you are healthy!
By Bruce Brightman - Founder - LifeSource Vitamins
Ever since I was a child, I can remember a basic concept that most everyone believed. It was simply that if you were physically fit, you were healthy.
If you could run, jump, throw a ball, swing a bat, and you did it regularly, you were certainly healthy. Somehow we concluded that activity equaled being healthy, and inactivity equaled not being healthy.
Unfortunately, this concept is not only false, but it is also dangerously misleading.
involves a way of life, but it is far more than the act of staying fit. Fitness involves activity of some sort that stimulates various systems of the body and maintains a certain condition within the body.
Health, on the other hand, involves EVERY system of the body and is only achieved through a lifestyle that supports health. For instance, if
someone has neglected to eat properly, ignored the fat content and type
foods ate mostly processed foods and chemical-laden preparations, all the
exercise in the world couldn't possibly correct the damage done from such a
lifestyle. Exercise won't remove the damage from chemicals, or improve
immune system damage or weakness from depleted foods.
Only sound nutrition can support good health. Of course, fitness can ALSO
support health and WILL improve health if it is part of a WAY OF LIFE. Our health is mainly the result of thousands of daily nutritional decisions. We make our future what we do every day of our lives. How many professional athletes do we know of who have either dropped dead on the basketball court or are now having serious health problems later in life?
Fitness is a vital aspect of good health. It can ease stress, burn unwanted fat, improve energy levels, decrease depression and improve academic performance, among other things. However, fitness needs to be utilized properly to achieve a desirable result. Enzymes assist in losing fat. But
the body won't burn the fat for energy if there is no NEED for the energy.
It's not like the enzyme lipase will simply burn the fat away. The fat has
to have a place to go, and it won't go anywhere even WITH lipase present,
unless we are generating a need for the energy fat can provide.
Over the past several years, research has been done in the area of muscle development and weight loss. When we properly understand how the body uses energy, and how to work WITH the body's physiology, amazing things can occur. For instance, research out of Arizona has proven that certain
combinations of enzymes, nutrients, and exercise can actually produce muscle
2X better than anabolic steroids. Hard to believe, but when you understand the natural system and work with it, you can do great things.
Natural bodybuilders and professional athletes have already tested the research and found it to be true. It is going to be making a dramatic impact in the area of health and fitness. This same research has also shown that weight loss, the nemesis vast majority of people, is VERY possible.
The right nutrients, enzymes, and exercise has proven to remove unwanted weight and tone muscle. Of course, this is in addition to a sound diet.
There is nothing free when it comes to losing weight or building muscle,
but with the right knowledge, AND THE DESIRE TO SEE IT THROUGH, you can certainly accomplish a great deal.
Health and fitness research information are growing by the day. For those who have access to the Internet, you can find loads of information in the area of health. We are living in the best era for achieving health and fitness the natural way, the way that has no side effects or penalties for doing something the wrong way. By simply educating yourself, you provide
yourself with the POWER to make significant changes in your health and
