Creating Balance In Your Health

For years now the importance of proper diet and exercise has been pushed and promoted as much as possible. But as with anything, people can take the active fitness lifestyle too far. In the past, it was athletes turning to steroids for an extra push towards muscle mass. Now, it’s the average person becoming so obsessed with body image that they lose sight of the actual goal of exercise and dieting—overall good health (http://www.womenshealthmag.com/weight-loss/naked-fit).

Take the new Naked 3D Fitness Tracker as a prime example. This product combines a mirror and scale to show you the progression of your weight loss over time. Sure, this is the next step in technology from taking selfies to show how your weight has changed. But now, the product is encouraging constant assessment and scrutiny of your weight and body size. Anyone who is seriously into fitness knows that your weight will fluctuate over time depending on several factors. So, this product (and others like it) may be taking you down a path of body image obsession.

The bottom line with any type of fitness regiment is that you need to look at things with a bit of moderation. You won’t become a bodybuilder or a fitness model overnight. It isn’t healthy to check your weight daily, let alone multiple times a day. When you’re exercising and dieting, you should look for a middle path towards health and leave the extremes alone.
