how healthy

Recommended Posts

Just wondered how healthy are you?

do you take vitamins,exercise, healthy eating or what.

I take loads of vitamins, and every evening I drink a glass of red wine. I do not drive so I walk everywhere. :D

Yes healthy eating, fruit, yoghurt, is a great favourite. :D

Most of the time I exercise 3x/week (30 min. running on the treadmill + strength & stretching); I have almost entirely given up white rice/pasta/bread and sugar; and only drink water, half-decaf, green tea and the occasional diet soda (once in a while, red wine also). I have oatmeal with flaxseed meal for breakfast every morning, and as many fruits/veggies as possible. I rarely have beef, either. I use healthy cooking techniques (grilling, healthy oils, no frying, no trans fats, etc.).

The exercise is really key for me; I feel so much better when I exercise, eat well and limit caffeine. Suddenly after turning 40, I feel crappy if I don't exercise; whereas it wasn't a problem before. Plus I have high blood pressure now (also after turning 40) so I have to exercise for that too.

There are still some things I could do better, though (snacking, remembering to take my vitamins, and I really need to go 4-5x/wk to the gym, at least for cardio).

I also feel like crap if I don't exercise. It's amazing how much better it makes you feel.

How healthy am I?

It's complicated. I have done enough research, and have enough knowledge on the exact ways of achieving amazing health. I have applied them to my life before. I continue to try and apply them . Unfortunately, self discipline is not an easy thing for some people, including myself, and so I live with the fact that I can live unhealthily, yet am completely aware of what is is doing to me, and also aware of how to fix it all, yet sometimes I can't bring myself to do it.

So, I expect to enter an extremely healthy period of my life in the near future, yet at present, am not living healthily at all.

Generally, I am in good health.

I try to keep a healthy diet, mainly vegetarian. Today I ate fresh strawberries, green beans steamed and tossed in a Dijon vinaigrette of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and sweet potato chips; also, pomegranate and grapefruit juice.

I take vitamins and whatnot, drink lots of water, get plenty of exercise. However I balance that out with a somewhat good (bad) diet of whatever the hell I feel like eating or drinking. Hey, I'm only 17 :P

I'm 5' 11 1/2" tall, about 180 pounds. In the seven years I've been married I've gained about 5 or 6 pounds. My main sport through the years has been bicycling. Although in the last couple of years I've curtailed the length and frequency of my rides. I've ridden several centuries (100 miles or more) in one day. One of my favorite vacations was an organized bike tour of Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon and Zion National Park in the US Southwest. The rides averaged 80 miles a day in very HOT conditions. I love riding in hot weather, but you need to start EARLY in the AM to miss the hottest parts of the day. Yes, I was/am a bike geek.

I also went through a tennis phase.

The last two years I've been playing basketball with a neighborhood group of over 35 year olds. We've allowed a couple of 20 somethings to join the group. There is a contingent of guys who currently coach HS basketball and a couple of them played college ball. Needless to say, I'm careful about who I guard. But I hold my own and my stamina has improved drastically. Not bad for a 52 year old.

I eat whatever I want and that is my downfall. One or two days a week I eat vegetarian. I limit red meat. I love beer, but usually only 1 or 2 on a day where I drink.

I walk about 3 miles almost every weekday, and as far I can tell, eat pretty healthily too.

I'm not so healthy lately. I've just had to go through breaking up with someone and I've lost sleep, and haven't eaten over it, resulting in weight loss. I need to start working on moving on and getting healthy again.

I work out for an hour every single day (except Sunday, thats my resting day). I take a multivitamin in the morning, followed by a glass of water with 5 grams of L-Glutamine. After my workout (starts at 7:30 a.m. at school) I take 5 grams of Creatine, which, unlike popular belief, is not a steroid, is completely natural, and has never shown any side effects except dehydration if you drink water. I've never felt any side effects from it

At the end of the day, I'd say I'm in pretty good shape, and I'd even say I'm healthier than a horse B):lol:

I think walking is a good form of exercise, and as well as jogging, I went jogging a few morning ago listening to Led Zeppelin it was good fun.

All I do is sit in front of the computer and eat so I'd say very healthy.

:hysterical: yeah, I'll think you'll live hundred years longer! ;)

i walk 5 to 15 miles, 5 days a week. and i mean i bust it. when i'm done, i'm done... but i don't eat good,(healthy), at all. i hate greens. love red meat, rare, deep fried foods are great. lots of eggs and bacon.. give me fat, choleseral, and salt, and i'm in heaven.. plus, every friday night i drink at least 12 beers. and maybe some more on saterday. funny thing is, i don't ever get sick. last time i got the flu was in the late 80's. never get colds. haven't been to a doc. in at least 15 years. i'm 50 and keep up with 20 somethings at out doorsy stuff. not sports like hoops, but backpacking and kayaking. things like that. i'll probably keel over within the week.
