“If you touch my honey-bun, I’ll cut your fingers off,” Linda said to her husband. If this remark sounds familiar, then you may have echoed/uttered these words to someone. We all have our favorite foods that we love and enjoy. On the other hand, those favorites could be the reason we shout obscenities and gain weight with every bite. Some of those calorie-loaded foods carry and are loaded with impurities that aren’t right for our bodies. Consequently, we enjoy pastries; a glazed doughnut can carry around 200 up to 300 calories. So based on a 2000 daily diet, you’d only have 1700 calories for the remainder of the day.
Trends2 researched the backgrounds of some celebrities who’ve deceased based on bad habits with drugs, eating and miscellaneous activity. Do you remember funny man Chris Farley, the obese guy on Saturday Night Live? Chris fought obesity and drug abuse most of his life. Due to a drug overdose, his life was suddenly eliminated at the age of 33 years. Being that he was in his prime celebrity years, he didn’t get a chance to see 40.
What about the great John Candy, his demise came as a result of struggling with weight issues. His filmography was filled with many iconic films like Blues Brothers, Stripes, SCTV and Home Alone. Although he had a host of other movies and acting credits, he still tussled with his weight problem and he was also known to be a smoker– which never helps a situation. John’s legacy ended at 44 years of age. It was said that he deceased in his sleep, but before doing so, he ate pasta- it’s never a good idea to
lay down with heavy foods- not being completed digested. He didn’t make it to see 50.
The ominous fact is that people need to be frequently aware of their intake of foods and habits that are creating biological detriment. Let the actors serve as a caveat to live longer and take care of our bodies while we have them.
Just this year there was another famous celebrity, Nate Dogg, aka, Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, died suddenly from complications of heart failure. Although Nate Dogg suffered previous strokes throughout his life it wasn’t enough for him to heed the caveat before his death, at 42 years.
It’s known that women out live men when it comes to heart disease. This could be because women are active with domestic responsibilities: work, family, and anything that keeps women moving about. It keeps the cardio beating. In turn if you do too much then you could possibly burn yourself out. So moderation is the key with any strenuous activity, and slow down on the eating intake, too.
The concern is that if we are supposed to be eating three times daily, how is one to maintain a 2000 calorie diet.
