Ridgefield Wellness Coach and Personal Trainer Greg Herzog believes that we have a Major Healthcare Crisis on our hands.
Everyone is talking about Healthcare, but it’s also about you doing your part too IN DEFENSE OF FITNESS® and taking personal responsibility.
What we need right now is a National Campaign to get in shape and get healthy, “Feel better about ourselves and survive.”. It’s no longer about vanity. It’s not too late to change!
There has been no emphasis on diet, exercise, or health, it's just “figure it out yourself”.
Shame on the media and government in not emphasizing how important diet and exercise are. Covid19 has now made it an issue.
Why couldn't they have gotten behind a campaign “Get healthy so the virus doesn't kill you” challenge.
Dr. Fauci, The Surgeon General and The CDC do not mention the one thing people could do; lose weight and get in shape.
So many lives could have been saved if the medical community took this on as a campaign. “You need to do something now. It’s your chance to change your life”.
We need to stop glamorizing gluttony. Diabetes is not a theory. It is a life and death issue today. Stop with the body positivity. This is fundamental as to who lives or dies; being overweight is not a good thing, out of shape even worse. With Covid19 you are twice as likely to have poor outcome if your Obese.
One study found that the risk of death for people with a BMI of 35-40 increases by 40 percent and with a BMI over 40 percent, the risk goes up by 90 percent compared to those not living with obesity.
Even being mildly obese increase the chance of landing in the ICU by 5x. Our food, diet and lack of fitness is killing too many of us. “Poor diet and lack of fitness is the leading cause of mortality.” According to a NYT article. Countries with the lowest rate of obesity have had the least Covid19 deaths, our world ranking is 42. We had 40K deaths from obesity in August alone.
Obesity is already killing us slowly, mix it with Covid19 and its lethal; it kills you fast.
Obesity is linked to Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, Eyesight Problems, Memory Loss, Pain, Fatigue, Anxiety, Depression, Immunity Issues and Gastrointestinal conditions, not to mention Covid19. This is science, not just my opinion.
Why do we have so many preexisting conditions? Fat. Europe is not like this. We weren't always like this before. We have been conditioned to fail at a very young age with no emphasis on proper diet and exercise. It’s only “wear a mask”, “wash your hands”, “keep your distance”. Nothing about exercise, diet, inflammation, health, or your immunity.
