Sometimes the world isn't fair. Sometimes people are just naturaly gift with things like a high metabolism. Well that isn't always the case. Some people tend to grow up eating these high fat/sodium food that isn't healthy for you and sure doesn't help with gaining bad fats. That's why all nutritionists would tell you foods like that are best to stay away from. Knowing that some peoples metabolism is faster then others that shouldn't be the excuse. With some dedication and some motivation anyone can start to become healthy. And while trying to be healthy in all aspects, sooner or later you will start to see the results that you want.

My Thoughts:

Although taking a break seems like the last thing you have time for in the middle of a busy day, sometimes it proves to be beneficial to productivity. Often, I spend hours sitting at a desk doing homework and don't even realize when the sun has set and it's already time to go to bed. I feel as if I haven't accomplished anything, and go to bed even more stressed. What I never realized was the importance of taking breaks to unwind and de-stress. If I ever have writer's block or just can't figure out a problem, I will take a walk out in nature—after all, not only does it relieve stress, but it's healthy!

Drayven Thomas's comment, April 10, 2013 11:47 PM
The article focused on a comparison between walking and running. It stated that while running burns calories faster, walking, with a little more effort, can produce the same effect.Walking is already a major part of my lifestyle, this proves that it does not need to be replaced by jogging. Walking can be a healthy incorporation to my exercise plan.
