All of this means that if we want to end obesity, we need to focus on our diet and reduce the number of calories we eat, particularly the sugars our primate brains have evolved to love. We’re getting fat because we eat too much, not because we’re sedentary. Physical activity is very important for maintaining physical and mental health, but we aren’t going to Jazzercise our way out of the obesity epidemic.
Have you ever left the shore? Gone beyond the surf into the open ocean? On a 10-foot foam board?
To many it’s a Wednesday ritual where they paddle 4 miles out to the RS4 Bell Buoy.
For others (like me) it’s a panic attack waiting to happen with images of sharks, storms, barracudas, and 100 foot waves. Not to mention the stamina needed to paddle 4 miles in the open ocean. Is that like running 4 miles?
I’m still gonna do it though. What is life without adventure, you know.
