    For you: what means to be healthy?

    Yesterday i was wondering what is the real meanning of health. And i was thinking about that because a lot of TV shows and another "#% with all the same things: really awesome girls or boys or the classic "eat rich and healthy" and some stuff like that.

    And today, people really care about exercise, their own-body, the sugar in food. For most, to be healthy is all about those things, but is that really healthy?

    The WHO (World Health Organization) have this definition: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".

    Maybe that definition is not complete but also is the most complete. That show gave me another question: Can a fat guy be healthy? With the sugar, HDL, LDL, UA and another chemical values in normality, to be fat is not a disease by itself. Can be the begin of a lot of disease but not a disease. But now the people look in the fat boys and girls a lot of sick people. This is only an example.

    So again, what is it to be healthy for you? Going to the gym? Doing a lot of exercise? Eating rich and healthy food (whatever that means)? Or maybe living your life happy like you are?

    I read your answers. Good night.

    For me, being healthy means alot of exercise, and eating healthy! Like, I run around my street three days a week, and I eat really healthy. I don't go to my gym anymore, cause, well, it cost too much...also, just a pointer, all these diet pills and junk can't be good for you at all...

    So, yeah, my definition of healthy is working out and eating healthy food! ^^

    Can a fat guy be healthy?
    Well it depends on how fat, but most likely no. Being extremely overweight puts a strain on the heart(and other body organs),causes unhealthy conditions(Like diabetes), and will eventually kill you.


    To me being healthy is exercising, watching what you eat, and being fit mentally.

    I believe being healthy is more than just what you eat and exercise. I believe it is also how happy you are, and your mental and spiritual health. I also think that health can also be (but not always) determined by your culture, economic status and the environment you live in. So in a sense I do agree with the WHO definition of health.

    Yes. While I won't deny that there are extremes to both ends, but I really do believe that you can be 'fat' whilst being healthy at the same time. There are plenty of 'fat' people who have no health problems what so ever and live healthy lives (in terms of both eating and exercising and what I mentioned above). I also don't believe in this so called BMI system. If my friend is skinnier than me and was classified as 'over-weight' their must be something wrong with it xD

    Re: For you: what means to be healthy?

    To be healthy is to be happy, and to be happy is to be healthy. This is the most simple way i see health as. I don't really care about what professionals say about keeping fit and all. But for me its all about the energy i have on hand and at my disposal.

    You can go into the finer details and all, but this is what i believe the essence of good health is. Or is it good living? Ahh well it's all the same in the end.
