Diet And Exercise With Attitude

  • People say they want to live longer -- if in good health.
  • Lifestyle and wellness products help people live longer, healthier, more fulfilling lives.
  • Diet and exercise is the most economical and rewarding lifestyle change you can give to yourself.
  • Keep it simple
  • Everything in moderation
  • Including more fresh produce and fewer packaged foods in your diet is a plant-based diet.
  • Walking is the perfect exercise. Walking helps to get your blood flowing and your lymph system working.
  • Attitude? Just try and be all you can be. A better you. Set a good example for others.

How is a plant-based diet beneficial?

A plant-based diet is associated with better heart health. (lower risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease) healthier body weight, and lower risk of death (overall death and death from cardiovascular disease). Most of what you eat comes from plant foods, but that meat, dairy, eggs, fish, and other seafood make up a smaller proportion of total nutrition.

A healthy body with proper food and exercise is what this page is about.

Note: Everyone is different; "general guidelines" are just that.
Personal nutrition is a learning experience.
Most people already know their likes and dislikes, their differences in taste and tolerances.
Keeping a short meal history (diary) can prove efficient.
The body is always rebuilding itself. 2 to 3 months of improvements to diet and exercise will generally show some results. Noticeable enough to want to keep it up!
  • How To Begin? Slow but sure… Everything is in moderation.
  • Where To Begin? Cut down sugar intake. Drink good clean water. Move in the direction of unprocessed foods.
  • What diet and exercise will produce results? Don't let the first step become a hurdle.

Nutritional habits (diet) are a learning experience

Guidelines for a Healthy Diet

How diet and exercise affect the human body.
A diet consisting of mostly Fresh Produce provides clean fuel and nutrition for the body to run on.
Off the shelf prepackaged foods offer more waste for the body to have to clean out with little nutrition.
Fresh produce contains enzymes lacking in off-the-shelf foods.
Enzymes present in fresh food sources are necessary for proper digestion and nutrient absorption.
What is the importance of enzymes? Good question.

Exercise - one of the most important things you can do for your health.
Exercise should be tailored to what a person is physically capable of and remain comfortable.

Walking is good ( and easy for most). Do you have time? Try and find 30 minutes a day and enjoy it. If 30 minutes a day isn't an option, 40 minutes every other day? Movement is beneficial for the body. It moves the lymph system. Try adding a 15- or 20-minute walk during your lunch break.
Walking can put a spring in your step and positively affect the rest of your day.

To build on walking is to get the heart pumping more blood now and then.

Walk And Jog

Walk a couple of hundred yards and jog a few yards (what you can). The idea is to increase your heart rate during the walk. Progress at your own pace. You are looking to make a lifelong change here.

Comfortable footwear is the most important in any activity, especially walking.
Good footwear.

Most people reading about diet and exercise, weight loss, improving health, and such; are looking at options, what is the easiest way to get results.

There are many gimmicks out there!

Mostly, pills that claim to chemically alter the way fat is stored and melt fat away.
You can't eat prepackaged meals off a shelf or out of a box and expect to get good nutrition.
Good nutrition only is available from fresh foods, mainly produce.
Fresh produce contains Mother Nature's balance of nutrients in a form readily available to the body.

It is important for your health

Fresh food means freshly picked, prepared, and consumed before it spoils.

Frozen, canned, and dried packaged foods lose nutrients.

Processing of any type also reduces the nutrient content and may even strip away those vital antioxidants that support immune health and protect cells from damage.
Choosing fresh ingredients promotes synergy among the nutrients and the mix of nutrients your body needs.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Nutrition And Cancer


  • There are two types of patients. One type wants their doctor to make the best decision concerning their cancer treatment on their behalf. These patients are not interested in doing their research. They have faith in the current medical system and are happy about it.
  • The second group of patients likes to get informed by studying the diagnosis. They may need to be more knowledgeable, but they are willing to learn about the treatment options most suited to them. Experience shows that patients with the most success in beating cancer are the most involved. Working with their doctor, they learn, ask questions, and take control and responsibility for their bodies.

Exercise And Cancer

Exercise Medicine This emerging field of exercise medicine (i.e., biological alterations driven by biomechanical stimuli) [67] in exercise oncology presents practitioners with unique opportunities to target tumor formation, growth, and invasion of primary or secondary prostate carcinomas through exercise interventions. Aerobic exercise stimulates natural killer cell production, mobilization, and tumor infiltration. An approximate 60% reduction in tumor incidence and growth across several preclinical models. Controlled mechanical compressions of skeletal sites with known bone metastases have been shown to interfere with tumor-driven dysregulation of osteogenesis. A general 80% reduction in tumor growth rate in osteolytic models while preserving skeletal integrity by about 70% in loaded versus unloaded conditions [47]. These preclinical findings use animal models and require human trials. Some human trials are currently in progress, providing good insights into exercise medicine independent of other therapies.
