"Passion Attraction Triumph Unbeaten"
"I am passionate about fitness and helping others becomes as passionate. My focus is always on helping others to understand how to adopt health, fitness and a nutrient-rich clean eating diet as a lifestyle rather than a quick fix”. Thanks to God for making this happen!

Article # 340. The Problem Of Obesity
The health consequences of having a BMI greater than 30kg/m2 (the standard measurement of obesity) are not merely cosmetic, but linked to severe coronary heart disease, type 2 Diabetes, forms of cancer, hypertension, stroke, liver and gall bladders diseases. Also being over-weight can detrimentally impact a person’s quality of life, advocating for an urgent national call on healthy weight-loss and prioritizing the issue for all of us. Especially considering that obesity rates amongst our children have more than tripled in the last 30 years, further escalating obesity related diseases like Diabetes, which were previously relatively unheard of in such a young population.
Obesity currently costs the world more than some billion dollars annually, contributing to an already over inflated debt, which does not even include total costs to employers for time off and insurance co-pay related issues of being overweight.
In this day and age, so many of us feel disconnected from our government and resign to stay on the sidelines, watching the headlines instead of actively participating in possible solutions to collectively take our country back in a positive direction.
I know people who read this post that, are already on the path of healthy living, so forge ahead! Start a lunchtime walking group at your office, organize a community sports team for kids in your neighbourhood, and spread the news.
