Exercise vs. Diet: Which Weighs More?

ExerciseAre you a gym rat who’s been spending hours each day trying to build your biceps and getting that coveted six-pack abs? Are you a marathoner who just wants to challenge yourself to be better? Do you count calories to know if you’re eating way more than you should?

You may have personally experienced those health issues. If you’re struggling with health and fitness especially now that you’re working and often have no time for yourself, perhaps you’ve thought about exercise and diet. You’ve probably asked yourself and your friends on whether exercise or diet is more effective in helping you achieve your fitness goal. Here are several details you need to know about them.

Exercise

Every individual has his or her own preferences in how they want to move. Some people prefer the calibrated movements in the gym, enjoying each count and each rep and seeing the results in a few months. Others go for the gradual body discipline gained in martial arts. Some exercise better alone, while most people find that working out with a group feels greater.

No matter how you choose to exercise, the facts are it improves burns calories, develops your muscles, and improves your metabolism. Even 30 minutes of intense physical activity in a week helps strengthen your heart, lungs, and muscles. One thing that experts have agreed on is that regular and continuous exercise matters more than a month of intense activity and then going back to a sedentary lifestyle.

Diet

On the other hand, a lot of healthcare experts now consider that maybe what you eat is more important than how much you move, at least in terms of weight management and fitness. After all, you get the important nutrients that your body needs from food, and those nutrients fuel your organs and sustain your overall health. If you’re a picky-eater, you can go for meal plans in Abu Dhabi or wherever you may be living. You can choose from hundreds of healthy, nutritious dishes that help you in counting calories and gaining those much needed nutrients.

Getting a meal plan in Sharjah also allows you to spend more time with your family and friends. You can eat your meals with them instead of spending time figuring out what you eat and actually preparing them.

So which one has more weight in achieving and sustaining a fit and healthy body? In any case, majority of the results you are going to achieve will depend on the habits you develop. Balancing exercise and diet and developing the right habits will help you become healthier in body, mind, and spirit.

When a Child Learned to Stand on His Own

divorce-lawyerWhen it comes to family, I always say that I have the best. I grew up not lacking in love, affection, and support from my parents and siblings. We are always finding ways to bond once in a while since most of us are busy with our respective jobs and school stuff. I am proud of my family, especially my parents. I have a lot of friends who are from a broken family. Nothing’s new with that. It’s not a big deal anymore. Or so they say. I believe that even though it looks like some people are not paying much attention to it, I know that these children who suffer from loneliness and jealous of other’s family status are also emotionally broken in their own way. I’ve hear a couple of sad storied from my friends on how their parents resorted to ending their family just because of some reasons. Not considering that it is not just the relationship that is being affected, but the child who bears all the pain and fear because how can a child grow up without a father who will protect him from all the bullies? Or how can he wake up each morning without a mother to greet him and prepare him breakfast before going to school? How will he, at a young age, handle all these when most commonly, the only  problem a child should be thinking is his arguments with his playmates.

That’s why when one of my friends told me that he thinks his parents are getting a divorce, I was sad and mad at the same time. His family was based in Dubai. They’ve been living there for almost ten years now. They migrated right after he graduated from high school. When he told me about the problem between his parents, what shocked me most was his insight about the situation. He said the relationship between his parents changed few years after they moved to Dubai. And that they treated each other as if they were strangers living under one roof. It was not easy for the family to face the strained relationship, but they chose to be strong for each other. My friend consulted a degree certificate attestation for uae from a law firm in UAE. He told me that everything became clear to him after the lawyer discussed to him all the legal matters. He trusts the lawyer. My friend said that he made the right decision to consult someone who knew the actions that should be taken.

As a friend, all I can do for him is to support him and be with him through this storm he is facing. Because I’m sure after this everything will be better than it used to be.
