A lot has to do with our highly industrialized society. In the past 50 years there has been an unprecedented transformation to new technologies designed to save us time and energy. We have garage door openers, electric clothes dryers, power toothbrushes, even gizmos that warm up our cars in winter so we don't have to go outside and scrape off the ice. If there are ways to save steps, avoid lifting, stretching, bending or moving, inventors have been there, done that or are fixing things as we speak. There are remote controls for everything, and computers do almost all the legwork for us. I don't even have to flip the light switch in my office when I enter or leave; it's done automatically with a sensing device.She does concede that an industrialized society, of course, is not the sole reason for the obesity epidemic.

I don't believe in "magic bullets," but when it comes to making a weight-loss program more effective, regular physical activity comes pretty close.I liked the servings quiz as well as the recipes with pictures that were apart of The EatingWell Diet book. I'm still not sure if I correctly identified grains, starchy vegetables and the protein group etc. Guess I'll go take the quiz again...
Drink water: H20 is the ultimate detoxer. It's required for every bodily function.As I shun Vitamin Water, wean myself from bottled water, strategize about how to drink it by adding mint, lemon juice, cucumbers or freezing it before bike rides or as I switch to Perrier and Gerolsteiner to shake the water experience up a bit, I was reminded to be grateful by this story on CBS Evening News.
Bicycling ListSunblock is a new addition to my list. I didn't wear it before because I was a little cavalier about the pigment quotient. I thought I had enough pigment to protect me until I read Health magazine. This woman held the same belief that I did and ended up with skin cancer and that's the reason that sunblock is now on the list.

I acknowledge the inherent extreme risk in rock climbing activities, including those that take place indoors. I realize that those risks include falls, equipment failure, bad decision-making, inattentive belayers, and holds that become loose or damaged by other climbers. I understand that there are unforeseeable, freakish accidents, and I assume all risks associated with such accidents, even though I cannot foresee them. I agree to pay attention to the state of the ropes in the gym and that of the anchors, and to advise gym staff if I do any damage or notice any damage, I agree to abide by all gym rules, and if gym staff make a specific request of or instruction to me, I agree to comply.So, yeah, there are other parts to the waiver but you get the idea.
Clearly, biking and exercise are hazardous to your health...? Stay home, avoid exercise, eat nuts and berries...live forever?A woman from St. Louis was struck by lightning while bicycling.
