working out is considered a healthy habit for most everyone to have, but if you’re really overweight and/or you sit on your butt day and night doing absolutely nothing, it can be unsafe to abruptly jump into an exercise regimen. Take it slow if you go from zero to aerobics, as it’s very possible to over-exert yourself and end up with an injury. It’s not going to feel too good if you give yourself an aortic dissection because you did too many jumping jacks.
Artificial sweeteners. It’s widely touted that you can be on a diet and still enjoy junk food with aspartame, Splenda, Truvia, or any other fake sugars on the market. Opinions on the healthiness of artificial sweeteners vary-some say they’re totally safe, and some say they’re carcinogenic. Here’s a little story: when you eat fake sugar, your body thinks you’re eating real sugar because of the sweet taste. And from sugar, energy is derived. So your body goes looking for this energy that’s not there, and as a result, you get tired because you’re tricking your body. Don’t consume too much of this stuff because you may find yourself more fatigued (and less likely to exercise).
