HEALTHY LIVING with Angela K
With the help of inheriting my father's good metabolism, it's put me at a greater advantage to have successfully kept my weight in check for nearly 50 years. No fad diets, or diets period, no starving, no skipping meals, or whatever unhealthy, unrealistic, short-term practices that are popular to achieve quick, weight loss miracles that don't last long-term.
In my younger years, I took my metabolism for granted, but under these optimal conditions of having some pretty darn good genes, my metabolism never malfunctioned. In my older years, my metabolism is still fully functioning very well, and because of that, I respect my body more by living a healthier lifestyle. I'm savoring the gift of having a good metabolism, especially being the BIG 5-0 is weeks away. My story will absolutely not be that it all went down hill from here. When I started educating myself about living a healthy lifestyle, I learned that genes aren't automatic. Lifestyle plays a big role. For me, that meant eating healthier since I've always been active. I always say, lifestyle will either open a can of worms or keep the can closed. When you're predisposed to unhealthy genes, preventative measures must be your baseline function to respond to preexisting conditions via genes that make you more vulnerable to unhealthy conditions, which can be brought on by living an unhealthy lifestyle. To achieve optimal health, it helps to know your family's medical history in order to educate yourself to know the extra mile you must be willing to go to reduce your risks. You have a can of worms in your hands. Put the can opener down (poor, lifestyle choices), and nobody will get hurt. Any questions?
