Free Health and Wellness Gift CardFree Health and Wellness Gift Card

I know what you’re probably thinking, “what’s the catch”? Isn’t there always a catch when someone wants to give your something for free? Well, let me tell you, there is no catch, only a set of rules that need to be followed.

GiftOfWellness-WGC-1This is not about spamming you with emails, or phone calls, with all types advertisements. This is only about finding people that are serious about their health. This is about helping people that want to loose weight, and get back to a weight where they feel more comfortable. This is about helping the population get healthier!

Currently, there is a serious health issue going on in the U.S.A., and around the world. We have a global obesity problem: According to the worldometers website, there are currently 536,407,487 obese people in the world, and they are spending over 173 million dollars on obesity related diseases in the US alone.

Look at some of the key facts on obesity from the World Health Organization (WHO):

  • Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980.
  • In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 600 million were obese.
  • 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2014, and 13% were obese.
  • Most of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
  • 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013.
  • Obesity is preventable.

According to the World Health Organization, “overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health.”

“Body mass index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify overweight and obesity in adults. It is defined as a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of his height in meters (kg/m2).”

The WHO definition of BMI is:

  • “a BMI greater than or equal to 25 is overweight,
  • a BMI greater than or equal to 30 is obesity.”

“BMI provides the most useful population-level measure of overweight and obesity as it is the same for both sexes and for all ages of adults. However, it should be considered a rough guide because it may not correspond to the same degree of fatness in different individuals.”

Some of the common health consequences of being overweight or obese are:

  • cardiovascular diseases (mainly heart disease and stroke), which were the leading cause of death in 2012;
  • diabetes;
  • musculoskeletal disorders (especially osteoarthritis – a highly disabling degenerative disease of the joints);
  • some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon).

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that we have a real health problem. According to many health professionals, as the BMI increases, the risk for these “noncommunicable” diseases increases. So, what can we do about it?

We can start by eating healthier foods and exercising. We can start by adding high-quality vitamin and mineral supplements to our daily diets. We can start by contacting a health professional to have our BMI checked. We can start by filling our the online form and receiving a FREE $50 Health and Wellness Gift Card, which can start us on our way to a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Nutrition, Vitamins, and ExerciseNutrition, Vitamins, and Exercise

Whether you’re trying to lose weight or live an active healthy life style, nutrition, vitamins, and exercise are vital to your health. We have become as a whole in the western culture, a couch potato, slow moving, over weight and flaccid society. Of course there will always be that smaller percentage of people who get it right and remain fit and healthy. The ones that get it right make a conscious effort with the proper diet and exercise. Congratulations if you’re in that category!

If you consider yourself, non active, take the first step, and make a decision to become healthy and fit. Once you have firmly made that decision you are on your way. Now take the time to evaluate your lifestyle and really look at it. Be honest with yourself about your eating habits and activity level.

You may want to start with a diet program; there are many popular programs out there. The Zone, the Blood Type Diet, Atkins, the South Beach Diet, Weight Watchers and the list goes on. They all have had their share of successes so it is hard sometimes to know what to do. I can only say, do your homework. You will find the right one that works for you and you will be more likely to stick to it.

On the other hand, if you’re not into diet programs, and you just want to get into shape, exercise and the proper nutrition does work. Changing your diet (the food you consume, not a diet program) to eating healthy whole foods is a good way to start. It’ll not only help you lose weight and help you feel better, but it will enhance your quality of life. You’ll have more energy and life just feels better when you are healthy.

Eat raw fruits and vegetables as much as you can especially dark greens. Cooked veggies lose some of their nutrients so eating a salad every day would benefit you. Most of your vitamins and minerals are going to come from fresh fruits and leafy green vegetables. And try to stick to organic on this to avoid the pesticides and chemicals.

Cutting down to smaller portions can help tremendously. A great way to eat less food at one sitting is to drink a glass of water before you eat and then drink more water with your meal. Water takes up a lot of space in your stomach so you will feel full faster and water won’t give you any extra calories.

Find an exercise regimen that you like and will stick to. Pretty much any exercise program will help you lose weight if you stick with it. You will see on TV all the equipment people want to sell you but after watching for a bit you usually know what appeals to you or not. You may just want to pop in a video and exercise with that. If that doesn’t work, go out and play basketball or soccer, or go for a jog.

Some food is deficient in nutrients from growing in poor over used soil, so it might be a good idea to get some good vitamin supplements to assist in getting your daily requirements. Getting the proper vitamins and nutrients in food is the best, but that’s hard to do. If you’re struggling to come up with the proper regiment, find a qualified nutritionist to help. They will help you in selecting what’s best for you.

The proper nutrition, vitamins, and exercise are very important to maintaining a healthy body. The three go hand in hand, but it’s almost impossible to get the necessary vitamins and nutrients through food alone. I recommend that you take a daily vitamin supplement.
