In Part 1 of this post, we continued our discussion about the brain being the key to changing our behavior and transforming our bodies. I listed the various ways exercise can strengthen the brain as outlined by Dr. Daniel Amen in his book, Change Your Body, Change Your Brain.
Now, it’s time to discuss what happens to the body and brain when we don’t exercise. It’s not pretty.
Lack of exercise leads to obesity, which has reached epidemic levels in our country, especially with our children.
Studies have shown that obese children who become obese adults have an 80-90 percent chance of staying obese for the rest of their lives. We need to get our kids moving.
