Today in China, we are beginning to see more and more health problems because of poor diet and little exercise. It's high time that something should be done about this. Parents must remember that their children need to eat plenty of healthy foods. This does not include most snacks, as they are high in salt and/or sugar. This is also true of such unhealthy food that comes from fast food. People that need to watch their health should go on a green diet. This means that there is much more vegetables than meat or sugar products. They should mind these eating do's and don'ts in order not gain weight. It is much easier to not to gain weight than it is in trying to get rid of it. Sleeping and rest are also essential to having a healthy lifestyle. This allows your body to readjust and gain energy for the next day. In addition to food and rest, a regimen of proper sports must be injected in order to strengthen the body and lose weight. Exercises which are more intense such as aerobics should be done if this is the goal. If you want to gain muscle, then resistant exercises as with weights should be done. The proper thing that you should remember when going on a diet is that a diet is not a temporary change in what you eat and whether you exercise. A diet, to be affective, must be a life change. This requires the proper mind-set of wanting to stay healthy and pushing yourself in order to achieve this goal.
