Shaklee distributor in Dallas looks at supersize me.

There is a business man in Indiana who is capitalizing on the American phenomenon of people who eat more than they should.  Now instead of them asking the counter clerk at the local fast food chain restaurant to “supersize that meal”, their relatives are asking the funeral director to supersize their loved one’s casket.  The death of obese persons is often masked as a common disease, but most likely that death was caused by symptoms of being morbidly overweight.

This business man in LYNN, Indiana, a casket maker specializing in oversize caskets, says business is booming along with America’s obesity epidemic.  Because we, as a nation, are growing bigger and bigger, we are requiring larger and larger caskets for burial.   Also, this morbidly obese condition is causing earlier death and is increasing the general mortality rate.

We don’t have to continue this trend.  As individuals, we must take control of our lives, including our eating habits and the emotions that trigger the bad habits.  Avoid the “super size me” conversation at the funeral home by sharing with your loved ones that you want them to be around for a long, healthy time.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas shares the dangers of stress.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas shares the dangers of stress.

Most every one of us has stated at one time or another that we are stressed.It can even become a mantra that we say just out of habit. We live our daily lives and things do not always go our way.Too many things come our way at once.We just don’t cope with our everyday lives very well.Emotional events and situations begin to get the best of us and our bodies react.

There are times of good stress, like an upcoming wedding and there is happy stress.There is also the beneficial stress of physical activity.But in general, we Americans harbor the detrimental stresses of life without taking steps to alleviate it, allowing the ill effects to cause dysfunctions in our bodies.

Did you know that stress can make you fat?It is true.During periods of stress, the body produces a hormone called cortisol.Cortisol helps to regulation metabolic processes, it has anti-inflammatory properties and it can also be suppressive to the immune system.

When there is an overproduction of cortisol, the metabolism is affected in a negative way, causing the body to store more fat cells, particularly in the midsection of the body.How many highly stressed executives have you noticed have a large, protruding belly?

The other thing about stressed people is that they often have poor eating habits.Long days with hurried activities and looming deadlines don’t predispose one to taking time for a nice, relaxing, rejuvenating lunch. Breakfast is often eaten on the run in a dash to get the day started.Then there are dinners with clients and business associates.These are generally not the light, nutritious meals that will allow one to sleep well.

It is important to manage stress in order to keep the body working at its best as long as possible.Some things to help curtail the effects of stress are to get more exercise, like taking the stairs or going for a short walk.Get a massage from a professional massage therapist.Eat more sensibly and make sure you get protein in the morning.If you feel that you need something to help calm you down a bit, try Shaklee’s all natural Stress Relief Complex.
