How Are You? I Am Asking Because The Big Story This Weekend Is Obesity Is On The Increase Since Lockdown Wahala !

throwback inside gym changing room. I don't feel safe to go back yet while I continue exercising at home.

The cause of obesity (posh name for excessive body fat🤭) is comfort eating when unhappy and depressed is all I have been hearing since. So let me contribute by saying .......

Move more, sit less, enjoy outdoor activities........

Run in the park, field...

On your bic! Ride in less busy areas.....

Walk uphill, raise your heart rate, burn calories......

Exercise makes your mind work better.....

Enjoy movement .....drive instead of driven by a driver, a cardiovascular exercise moving arms and legs.. 

Avoid sedentary lifestyle, idleness is unhealthy......

How long have I been preaching this?       

 

Eat Well

I Am Currently Working On Revised Edition Of My 2nd Book

Interestingly, coronavirus pandemic has shaped the food industry in ways unimaginable! Such that gives me a free rein to add valuable materials, fill pages with stories future generation will read how a mere sneeze from Wuhan, China brought the whole world to a standstill.    

               ''African food store owners have taken advantage of unregulated food prices to a different level. For those open, business is booming, tills are fast and furiously ringing in cash. Serving staffs wear huge smiles instead of a face mask amid panic buying, supply shortage, inflated prices, fear of meeting supermarket empty selves. With my face mask securely on I made sure I got everything covered, won't take any risk''

                 ''I found myself buying frozen, off colour almost stale veggies, buried in industrial freezer for months or longer, due to scarcity of fresh produces''

                        ''It is unsettling times, win-lose - situation though many are hard-hit, the real scoop are unscrupulous rough-neck store owners who would cheat squeeze out the last penny from customers, serve them in close proximity without keeping a safe distance''

                      ''It is a case of buying what is on offer or go without it. While we are advised to self-isolate indoor only venture out strictly for essentials, only a handful of grocery stores are open with limited supply of food products at inflated prices. Mainstream food chain like McDonald and KFC provide limited outlets for drive-thru and takeaways did well compare to African restaurants who could only provide extremely limited few takeaways however quickly shutdown completely afterwards. It is a known fact that majority of them rely on foreign import so limited food supply in the crisis especially authentic food items such as isi ewu (goat head), okazi, kpomo, isam, akpu, fufu, utazi, we can't find here in the UK, worse, the seasonal ones we rarely see are almost impossible to find in pandemic''

A better option for me to ingest fruits is by blending them together -make a smoothie than munching ! I just throw all the fruits inside a blender, add water or milk to make a shake. It is that simple. E N J O Y 💚
