Why are some aerobic dancers still fat?

1

Aerobic dance becoming popular among Cambodian people, especially those who are aged around 45 to 60 years old. They form up a team with one or two instructors, and they do the dancing every evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. something.

The main purpose of their activities, hoping to burn some calories and reduce they belly fats for healthy living as well as better body shape. However, it seems like their objectives are hardly to achieve. Why is that so? Based on my observation, below are some possible reasons that could lead them not to achieve their objectives:

  1. Commitment: Some people they really want to reduce their body weight, burn their belly fats, however, they seem do not have a clear and strong commitment. They somehow, do not follow it and normally the rate of their action drop within two months, and they return to their previous hobbits and life again.
  2. Lack of attention of what they are eating: Principle of losing body weight, and belly fats is to limit your high caloric dense food such as fast food, fried food etc. However, I can say that nearly 60% of aerobic dancer will have something to eat after their dancing finish and clearly you will see a lot of mobile cart that selling fast foods stand, and selling around the park. They will never be able to loss any calories because this action.
  3. Lack of understanding about their food: Knowing how to eat is good, however, understanding about your foods is another story. You need to have a certain level of understanding about the calories that you’ll get from your food and calculate precisely in order to reduce a certain weight. Example: look at the food that some famous boxing athlete eat, especially, Many PACMAN Pacquiao, his foods are healthy and very optimal.
  4. They need to know that “aerobic alone is not enough”: Aerobic dancing look so ideally in reducing weight and burning belly fats, however, just practicing aerobic dancing alone will enough since aerobic dancing itself will not burn much calories and fats.

These are some reasons that observed why most of aerobic dancers still could not reduce any weight, some people even increase their body weight instead of losing it.

Weight reduction principle: Calories in = calories out

Why You Should Not Worry About HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS has been known for decades and it is the disease that everyone always worry of. But these past decade, another threats becoming bigger concerns compare to HIV/AIDS. So what is it and why we should just worry about HIV/AIDS anymore?

HIV/AIDS is the disease that cause by HIV virus. If it is causes by virus that’s mean we will have strategies to prevent from getting infected from it. And yes, that’s right because HIV virus can be prevented by using condom anytime you intended to have sexual activities with other girls who is not your wife or who’s just one night lover. So there is nothing we should be worried about HIS/AIDS if you are well protected yourself. So what else you should be worry of?

There are a lot of diseases which you could never prevented, such as cancer, diabetes or hypertension.

Nearly 100% of cancer disease that we cannot be prevented, except cervical cancer. Cancers are now getting bigger and bigger concerns for everyone not just at developed world but also at developing world as Cambodia like well. Cancer we cannot prevented and it is a silent killers because the moment that we know we got cancer, it’s almost late stage and the death is coming to us. Hope in the next decades when sciences is getting strong more, scientist could found another ways to help us secured from cancer disease but that hope will be a miracle.

Diabetes is another disease that we should be worry after cancer. People loves themselves and they try to get themselves what’s best but unfortunately their eating behavior just killing them. When people are getting richer and the things become more affordable, bad eating behavior just helps the boost the speed of diabetes almost double.

People should have think how protect themselves from those diseases not just worry about HIVE/AIDS.

Street Food and Health

If you are Asian or used to live in Asia countries, you might once experienced of eating “street food”.

The term of “street food” look strange in some cases, but it is very simple in most of Asian countries and Asian people. Street food is affordable for most Asian people who normally poor. Street food is not always bad, nor not always good. It has its pros and cons, among of those healthy concerns is the most discussed topic.

Street food equal the meaning of “affordable” and to make it even more affordable or increase its affordability, the cooks has to compromise the quality of the food’s ingredients.

Most people are really enjoy it because of some reasons:

1. Street food is cheaper: The term of “affordability” is the top of list for any decision making of huge percent tag of people. They want to survive, to live but spend less. They need to save money as much as possible to support and secure their family economic.

2. Street food fast, a lot of choices and close to workplace: Normally, street food always offer more choices, easy, quick and most important is close to their workplace. They just need walk out of their workplace and they can enjoy their meals with not-so-expensive bills.

3. Don’t want to spend time in cooking or do not know how to cook: Some people, sometimes including me, don’t actually like cooking. Cooking is process and it is remain skills, patients, talents and experiences. People who’s busy, they don’t actually spend any times in cooking, so they decides to choose what is easy, and fast so that they do something more than just cooking.

4. Living alone: Nearly 90% of single people are not actually cooking or eating at their home. They just don’t want to cook or sometime, eating alone is boring thus they need to go out and eat out to enjoy their life.

5. “Street food” is a kind of snack: Especially, teenagers, they’re really enjoy of eating “street food” with their friends and they considered it as snack. You can see how they enjoy it if you travel along some road around Royal Palace, Riverside, Koh Pich or some parks at around 3:30PM to 4:00PM.

These above reasons that can boost the “street food” business grow faster than what we imagine (I don’t know exactly how the growth rate is look like).

However, “street food” also the main reasons or cause of some infectious diseases such as hepatitis A, B and C, Typhoid, Diarrhea, salmonella, warms etc. But most of people are not actually concerns about those kind of diseases while they just need something quick, easy and cheap.

The choice is yours but no matter what you will choose, just make sure that it balance between easy, cheap and healthy life.
