Hi there! For those of you who have been reading my blog for a bit, you may remember when I posted a paper I had written for an English assignment. I called it “Thinking Beyond the Wrapper“, and I wrote about Artificial Colorings, Preservatives and Trans Fats, and Artificial Sweeteners.
I would like to post another series from a platform speech I wrote last year while doing competitive speech and debate. It is about the problem of weight gain in America and the solution to losing excess weight. Two years ago I wrote and delivered a speech on white vs. whole grain breads, which I would like post sometime as well.
The speech I’m going to share here is titled “Change Your Lifestyle”, and I’ll be posting it in three sections. Please note that I am NOT an expert on the subject, and what follows is simply the results of my research. I found it to be absolutely fascinating, and I hope you do too!
Several weeks ago I was shopping at the grocery store. In the check out aisle, I read on the cover of a magazine “lose 30 pounds in 30 days!”. “Wow!” I thought, “that’s amazing!” But upon further consideration, I began to rethink my initial response. How could someone lose 30 pounds in 30 days? If it’s even possible, is this a healthy way to lose weight? And after losing this much weight so quickly, could a person even maintain his weight loss? After researching this surprising statement on a magazine cover, I found the answers to my questions. Technically yes, you could lose 30 pounds in 30 days. But there is so much more to the story, and that is what I will tell you today. Essentially, I will share with you some truths about weight loss.
First I will talk about the growing problem of being overweight in America, and why this problem is increasing. Next I want to tell you of the unsuccessful attempts of Americans to fix this problem of weight gain. We’ll look at a few of the popular fad diets and why these diets simply do not work. Finally and most importantly, I want to give you a healthy and long term solution to weight loss. I will show you the most successful way to lose weight, to keep excess weight off, and to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
I’ll be posting part 1 shortly, so check back soon! :)
