What Are You Willing To Do?

Just this month, a new research study has been trying to find out what women want and how to convince them to take better care of themselves. You can read the summary here:

What was most interesting to me is what women are willing to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Here was the information:

What Women Do to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

80% Drink more water
70% Eat more fruits and vegatibles
49% Read nutritional labels
47% Avoid foods that are high in fat
44% Make a conscious effort to lower calorie intake
44% Watch my sugar intake
43% Exercise at least three times a week

It seems that a lot of us are willing to drink more water and try to eat more fruits and veggies, but when it comes to the nitty gritty of living healthy, like limiting fat, sugar and calories, less than half of us are willing to do it.

What are you willing to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle? Are you going to go all the way and do EVERYTHING on the list instead of just the top two? It’s our decision.

    I do all of the above.

    Personally, I think that most people are misguided when it comes to living healthily. They think that just having the occasional fruit or glass of water is good enough. I think I used to think the same way. When I was bored, I’d grab an apple from the fridge and tell myself that I’m doing a favor, because eating apples makes you healthier. That’s true, but not when you stuff down a Big Mac later for dinner.

    It’s funny that the majority only opts for the “eat more” choices. I guess adding more food to your diet is always easier than taking some away.
