Here a little more resourcefulness and additional reading may be required to put together this post, I’m afraid. But, hey, it’s all good, going forward. Apart from providing you with inspiration and some food for thought on the matter, I don’t think it really helps if I only share with you my personal preferences. I’m lucky in a way. I’m not debilitated by any forms of mental or physical illnesses, although some would like to debate with me on this, so there’s no urgent need for me to be really radical in coming up with balanced eating and exercise plans.
But for others out there, those who may be obese or clinically depressed, for instance, it may be worthwhile addressing their needs. Let’s see if we can pull this off, shall we? Indeed we can. If you’ve already put this to the test then you would have found by now that a number of variations have been put forward. There’s sophistication to meet the needs of the most severe cases. It comes with professional help and the appropriate clinical advice. For now, all I can do is give a general impression on two focus areas, obesity and clinical depression.
What I’m going to suggest, going forward will be given in layman’s terms as far as possible. There simply isn’t enough time and space to go into all the complex details. I’ll try my best to raise what I believe to be the most important points among these two focus areas. Just remember, along the way, that eating and exercising should be fun. Suggested or prescribed plans, as far as I’m concerned, are doomed to fail if the patient is battling the entire way. Something new needs to be put forward. And it’s achievable too, because there are more than enough enjoyable things to eat and more than enough physical alternatives in this world to go around.
Proposed exercise plans for obese people
It has to be borne in mind that there are several categories of obesity. I happen to believe that this can be misleading in the sense that the ‘less seriously obese’ person may be complacent with her dietary and exercise needs and thus veer towards inconsistency with her pre-planned exercise plan. Start out with what’s generally recommended for the morbidly obese woman. Her regular exercise regime will be light-weight in nature and surely quite easy for the less heavy girls out there to follow. It’s an encouraging stepping stone towards more ambitious and enhancing programs.
Proposed eating plans for obese people
The emphasis across the chopping board is to lose as much weight as possible. So, the emphasis across most proposed eating plans for obese people is to consume as little fat as possible. Non-fat food alternatives should be sourced as far as possible. Along with that, white sugar is to be avoided at all costs. I can’t list them here, there isn’t enough space, but focus is also very much on foods that encourage the breaking up of fats inside of the body. So, for breakfast, morbidly obese women could expect to be indulging in modest portions of oats every morning for at least the first two months that they are on their new eating plan.
Proposed exercise plans for clinically depressed people
For clinically depressed exercisers, particularly during the first few weeks of their plan, variety is very much the spice of life. Boredom can be stifling. A lack of interest in surroundings and events is a symptom of depression, so there’s no need to make it worse by adding to the clinically depressed woman’s misery. Another thing, exercise, different forms of it on every other day, should be enjoyed outdoors. Sunshine, good morning sunshine. Ever heard that expression before? There’s a reason for it. Fresh air is uplifting as well.

Again, variety is stressed, if you pardon the pun. But proposed eating plans for clinically depressed men and women can become a complex event in the sense that each individual is unique. And certain foods work better than others, depending on the clinically diagnosed condition. Generally speaking, if the patient has followed the correct course of treatment entirely, her psychiatrist will be working in tandem with a dietician and/or nutritionist. I’ve had fun with this exercise before and you’d be amazed just how many healthy foodstuffs are on the list recommended for unhappy folks out there.
Let’s not forget the importance of sleep
While I was still busy reading up on proposed eating and exercise plans for the clinically depressed, I came across one page that went into detail on the important matter of sleep. You know, this completely slipped my mind. But really, sleep is so important. The right amount of sleep and the set conditions for it every night really sets the tone well for the rest of a healthy, wholesome and swell day. One interesting thought came to me while I was reading about sleep preparations and conditions, mainly to do with getting the mind and body to relax before it gets to sleep, is that TV wasn’t mentioned once.
Are we to presume then that no TV, absolutely no TV is to be watched at night? Gosh, that’s really something to behold. I’m going to miss my soaps, I guess. But seriously folks, this is quite important. The writer was focusing mainly on the clinically depressed so her mission was to be as assertive as possible without losing any of her nurturing and maternal instincts. Because for her, the biggest priority was to see to it that those affected should start mounting their ponies and galloping off to the land of wellness as soon as possible.
Well, I think I’ve done quite alright with this post. Of course, you are more than welcome to disagree with anything I’ve said here, and you are more than welcome to press your own ideas on balanced eating and exercise ideas here as well too.
