Healthy equals life

You might ask me why I have chosen this topic, it sounds very ordinary and something we have all heard about before. But recently this has become very clear to me, a friend of mine died at the age of 23 because of his ignorance when dealing with his health. He was overweight and decided to do a drastic diet and an extreme exercise regime so he could look sexy and cool. It worked; he lost 30kg’s in 3 months. What we didn’t know, was he had a heart condition that he knew about, from when he was a baby and should never have been doing this extreme diet or exercise without being supervised by a professional like a doctor. One night a month ago, he went jogging alone and had a heart attack on the side of the road fell to his knees and died. His family lost their only child in a pointless waste of vanity and ignorance. Who can say if being supervised would have saved his life, but looking back it seems evident that what he was doing was a lethal combination that cost him a very high price – his life. So what is important, to look great or be healthy? These things can be achieved together without risking yourself and hurting the ones you love. Health must be the priority, exercise and diet must be done in moderation and if you have any underlying serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, get the advice of a doctor and do things properly. Life is precious, don’t throw it away.

Thanks for writing about your friend. I am so sorry you had to loose him. I have to agree with you that vanity destroys all. Narcissus is a lesson to all! I have struggled for years with annorexia and only after realising that my weight was not a reflection of me, did I begin to come to terms with "being normal"; and like yourself, it was only after a friend of mine died from what her eating disorder did to her body, did it really hit home - "if I carry on, I could die!" The search for perfection harms all of us, some survive, some don't. I am glad to say that I am a survivor, life is too precious!

Hi Wayne

My condolences on the lost of your friend. I am a firm believer in a healthy lifestyle. I do not subscribe to anykind of diet but I do involve sprituality in my eating habits (my husband and I are both vegetarians). This might seem so far-fetched to some people but I feel that caring for the body that God has humbly bestowed to us gets you closer to him. I pray for all food before it touches my lips - the process is simple, I totally cleanse my mind from all offensive and materialistic thinking when preparing, cooking and praying for all meal - this enhances the taste of the food and in my mind "holy food can do no harm to the material body". My husband and I have not visited a doctor for any serious illnesses in thus far in our lives and consider to be in peak condition.

Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts.

Losing weight for being cool with a loss of life is really foolish and ridiculous. Being supervised and advised by a doctor would be a good option.Just feel very sorry for your friend's family and sorry for losing such an precious life.People should be responsible for themselves.Body's feeling would always tell people what they need.Yet the behaviour must be taken with an appropriate control by the way.Spiritual power may have a great effect on achieving the goal, however, the possible consequent loss would also be taken into consideration. A general can never win a war if he does not make sure the influent food and medical supply. Likewise, make a good and healthy plan on losing weight while making sure the "backup". Wanna be cool? Do you mind to be wiser?
