EXERCISE – CONCLUSION
For proper physical fitness, a balanced diet is essential. The body should be at the correct weight for height and age. All the essential food factors should be included in the diet.
Protein is necessary to build up body tissue and to replace wear and tear. Fat is necessary to provide essential factors. Carbohydrate provides a ready energy source but excess tends to accumulate as stored fat.
Minerals and vitamins are necessary in small doses. Bulk in the form of vegetable fibre is necessary for the proper functioning of the bowel.
Exercising three times a week is the bare minimum. Four or five times a week is better. People who are fit look better, feel better, work better, are sick less often and have less chance of developing a heart attack.
Don’t smoke, drink in moderation, eat a balanced diet and take proper exercise. Learn to relax and you may not only live longer but enjoy it more.
The message Life: Be In It applies to you. You should exercise as if your life depended on it.
