Eating to live, or living to eat?

As a culture, we eat for a variety of reasons. We eat when we are bored, when we are busy, when we are depressed, when we are happy, when we are celebrating and when we are mourning. Our culture seems to center around food. This is causing us to be overweight, over-fat, under-muscled and flat out dragging tail.

So what are these reasons and what can you do about it? First off, reflect on why you are eating. One of the most disastrous things we do as a country relates to our inactivity: WE EAT BECAUSE WE ARE BORED. Which in turn makes us lethargic, unmotivated and less likely to move. And in return eat even more. It is a vicious cycle.

There are two ways of looking at food and life. Ask yourself this question and be as honest as you can be: Do I eat to live, or do I live to eat? Enjoying the food you eat is certainly not a bad thing. But can you control how much of it you eat/drink?

Just some food for thought.

Remember, we start a new round of our Hi-5 FitCamp on Monday Aug. 31 so be there and bring a friend. For more information visit our website or email me,

See you on Monday!
