How much is too much? Well the typical Australian has around 34 teaspoons a day.

This is way too much! It should be less than 5 teaspoons if you are serious about being healthy.

Here’s a typical not so healthy Aussie day of eating. Easy to get 34 teaspoons+ if you come from a carbohydrate upbringing!

Breakfast: 1.5 cups of cereal, 1 cup of OJ, 1 cup of milk. 10 teaspoons

Snack: 2 little pastries and 1 can of softdrink. 15 teaspoons

Lunch: Sandwich, muesli bar, apple juice. 7-15 teaspoons depending on size of the apple juice bottle.

Snack: Gatorade. depending on size 7-10 teaspoons.

Dinner: Salad with dressing. Potato. Pork chops. Bowl of icecream. 25-30 teaspoons.

The end point of eating like this regularly? Obesity.

Look for fat accumulation around the mid section and shoulder blades for tell tale signs of varying levels of insulin resistance and the icing on top – Diabetes.

A healthy body fat level for men is between 10-15%. For women, 17-35%. Do you know what yours is? We can do this for you if you want to know and give you a plan to deal with it. Ph: 3854 0386 now. Operators standing by 🙂

It is a great motivator to see where you are at now and then set a firm target by years end. What’s 12 months when it comes to the rest of your life? Your call.

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
