New NHS Health Survey – The Shocking Truth

80% of women and 87% of men in England aged 40-60 are OVERWEIGHT, DRINK TOO MUCH and get TOO LITTLE EXERCISE. Key findings of a survey carried out by the NHS – released earlier this week, called One You.

Pretty sobering right?! AND….we have the highest levels of obesity in Western Europe – trebling in the last 30 years. Half the population could be obese by 2050 given current estimations……

If you’re one of the 2 in 10 that the NHS considers healthy – congratulations! It’s an amazing achievement.

If you’re one of the 8 in 10 struggling with diet, exercise and alcohol…clearly you’re not alone.

But knowing you’re not alone can often lead to apathy. Are you someone that knows you should exercise more, get your diet cleaned up, stop the bottle of wine a night? But you don’t. And are we right in thinking it leads to a level of self-loathing?

So – we want you to take this question seriously.

What are you going to do differently so that you’re not out of breath walking up the stairs, so you can get in that wedding dress this summer? So you don’t feel embarrassed walking into a party?

No…it’s not a crash diet or liposuction?! It’s about changing what you DO and THINK. This time of year is PERFECT FOR TRANSFORMATION. You do have time, you do have the energy, you do have the willpower.

Not honouring and respecting your body leads to depression, illness and a short life. That’s the hard truth right there. So get yourself into that small percentage of people – kick out the excuses, clean up your life and feel PROUD.

Here’s THREE STEPS to getting started:

1. Accept where you are. Go check out the excellent NHS One You website where you can not only take a fun quiz assessing your current health levels, but find loads of useful information on managing your diet, smoking, drinking, sleep, stress and exercise.

2. Make ONE key fitness and health goal. Write it down. Get detailed – a goal without a plan is pointless!

3. Commit. When, where and how are you going to make this happen? Tell a buddy who can keep you accountable.
