Dip Into the Fountain of Youth for Your Fitness and Weight Loss Goals


Thousands of dollars are spent to keep the signs of time from our bodies. A cream to do this, a pill to do that, a surgery to tuck this – we are obsessed with youth. However, the real Fountain of Youth may be closer than you think.

There is something that we can do that really does keep us more “youthful”. It’s called fitness and is achieved along with weight loss with an exercise program. It’s hard to look young without muscle tone. The shapely, well-defined bodies we all covet simply aren’t attainable without it.

Your lean body mass to fat ratio is a very important factor in your general health and well-being. How your body functions is to a great extent determined by its ratio of lean body mass to fat. When for any reason, such as being inactive or going on and off restrictive diets, you shed lean muscle tissue, your energy, your personal appearance and the way your body performs is undermined.

In most of us this is a slow decrease, so slow that you are not aware of it until suddenly you notice your body has lost a great deal of its tone and is flabby even if are slim, and that you suffer from lack of energy. Unless you make an effort to improve your fitness, the problem only gets worse over time. You can soon tone and firm up your muscles, tighten up loose skin, boost your endurance and energy levels and lose weight as well.

Attending to your health gives you a sense of control and just getting started on a fitness program will make you feel better about yourself. The energy you gain as you increase your fitness will spill over into other areas of your life, allowing you to enthusiastically pursue your favorite activities.

As you work toward your fitness and weight loss goals you will find your self-esteem and confidence growing. You will manage your stress better and develop an increasingly positive outlook on life. Our bodies were designed to respond to physically demanding situations. When you add plenty of activity back into your life you are dipping into the real Fountain of Youth.

Make sure you keep the youthful enthusiasm and the energy you need to live your life to the fullest. When you begin achieving great results, the excitement and fun you experience will make the change well worth the effort.
