I am in early forties (42 to be exact). Yesterday one of my dear friend pointed out to me that I have visible paunch and I must do something about it. He suggested few simple exercises. Since he is silm and trim (and also few years older than me) he demonstrated these excercises to me. The exercises seems simple enough to do. Well, I have started doing these exercises from today. My friend also advised me to avoid using lift and instead to use stairs. My office is on the 4th floor and my home is on the 5th floor. It will be difficult to break the habit of taking lift, but I will try, honestly to stick to both his advises.
I may be almost at a stage which could be called mid-life. I want to remain healthy. I am really scared of the day when I have to give up certain foods to remain healthy. I pity those people who, under doctor's advise, have to follow the food diet.
