For many of us, the primary reason for leading a healthy lifestyle that includes physical activity is simply to ensure a good quality of life for many years and decades to come.
Do you include yourself in the physically active group of people who don’t know why they aren’t getting results?
Like most men on this planet, I tend to grocery shop in what I call “stealth mode” where I focus on getting into the grocery store quickly, obtaining the various targets (grocery items) and efficiently leaving with just a vapour trail, all the while being oblivious of anyone or anything that has nothing to do with successfully completing my mission. The question I pose today is simple, if the National Enquirer had a snapshot of you on the beach today, what clever caption would you include below your picture? On the other hand, do you get asked time and time again by various people who know you have a gym membership and haven’t seen you in a while this question “are you still working out?”  If you do, and it is usually asked by the same person, then that my friend may be a good indication that what you are currently doing isn’t working. If you include yourself in the results seeking physically active group, what do you believe is your primary reason for still having love handles or a muffin top?  Or perhaps you include yourself in a relatively small group whose challenges center around being too thin, what is your primary reason for not being able to add lean muscle mass to your body? Thirdly, set against the backdrop of a life well lived, the by-product of good health is a healthy physical appearance.  There is no question that good health means a healthy looking face, hands, eyes and skin, supported by a body with good muscle tone. Physicians rely on visual observations as part of a physical exam.  From the moment you walk in the exam room, your doctor includes what she sees as part of assessing your health.
However, I want to add a very important point; the visual observation of the absence of poor health doesn’t mean you are healthy, I recommend annual physical check-ups (scheduling one each year close to the date of your birth is easy to remember) that provide empirical data to confirm your good health.
If I had met each of my fellow gym members for the first time at a grocery store, gas station, restaurant or movie theatre, a good percentage of them, perhaps 8 of 10, I’d judge as not working out with any regularity whatsoever.
For most of us, our unhealthy appearance is typically created by the combination of our significantly larger waist relative to our chest for males, and hips for females. There is no denying that extra fat around our waist and organs, we call that visceral fat, poses a great challenge in preventing or delaying age-related chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, obesity and respiratory disease.
Or perhaps you have the challenges associated with being too thin, what is your primary reason for not being able to add lean muscle mass to your body?

And finally, perhaps the caption under your photo reads “beach babe” or “dune dude” then what is your primary reason for looking so healthy and fit?

Myths and Facts To Successful Weight Loss: Nuts are fattening and you should not eat them if you want to lose weight. From the unforgettable eyes of a child in Bangladesh to leaflike bugs in Tokyo, see our favorite winners of the 2011 World Photography Awards. A young Rohingya refugee in southern Bangladesh stares out from the winning picture in the professional "Current Affairs" category of the World Photography Awards.Repressed and persecuted in Myanmar (Burma), the Rohingya, a Muslim minority, have sought refuge in neighboring countries such as Bangladesh for more than 50 years, according to Spanish photographer Javier Arcenillas.

Two members of Ethiopia's seminomadic Bodi tribe walk away with a victory cup after a traditional New Year's "fat-man competition" in this picture by Pavel Wolberg of Israel.For three to six months before the contest, many young Bodi men consume only cow blood and milk, which is apparently quite fattening, according to a statement by Wolberg. Rings of stalagmites found in a cave in France suggest that our ancient relatives were surprisingly skilled builders.

And finally, perhaps the caption under your photo reads “beach babe” or “dune dude” then what, in your opinion,  is your primary reason for looking so fit and healthy?
In fact, there are a couple of trainers who I would never guess are health enthusiasts, let alone trainers.
I am trying to illustrate how difficult it is for each of us, including the everyday professionals who are supposed to know and pass along their knowledge, to understand and then implement the appropriate lifestyle that improves our health and appearance. And for those who believe this is too personal a topic to comment on in a public forum, feel free to email me directly at my contact page, your privacy is assured. Called "High Tide," the collection won the "People" category and garnered its creator L'Iris d'Ora€”the World Photography Contest's photographer-of-the-year prize.Chaskielberg shared daily life with islanders in the delta for two years while working on the project. The picture is from Spanish photographer Javier Arcenillas's winning Sicarios ("assassins") series, which explores hitman culture in Latin America."Young people living in poverty," Arcenillas said in a statement, "are seduced by the ease of earning money" as gunmen. Why are we putting all this work in and yet we look like most citizens whose greatest form of exercise are short walks to and from a car or refrigerator?
Would you include yourself in the group of physically active individuals who are overweight despite visiting the gym 3 or more times a week, remember your National Enquirer caption?
