Getting and remaining fit isn’t all about developing muscles; it has a lot to do with exercising and eating healthy.

“In order to have a healthy body, a person should follow a nutrition guide and exercise primarily every day,” Anderson said. “They should also get five to seven servings of fruit, lean protein, 25 to 35 grams of fiber every day, a minimum 64 ounces of water every day, and three servings of dairy.

“Exercise has been proven to slow down blood pressure, cholesterol and help with weight loss,” Anderson said.

The excuse most individuals use is not having the time to exercise, but if there is time to do things that are enjoyed, then what is a little bit more time and effort toward something healthy — your body?

“Failing to make a plan for a healthy lifestyle is planning to fail,” Anderson said. “Health is a mental game as well as a physical game.”

Among the individuals who do not have the time to exercise, there are some who make the time because becoming and remaining active can be of help to one’s health.

For instance, when a person is sick, he or she can go visit the doctor and the doctor will prescribe medicine. Well, Anderson says that exercising can be a dose of preventive medicine.

“A healthy body fights well against diseases and infections,” Anderson said. “Exercising makes the bones and the heart stronger.”
