The discovery that has improved the lives of countless people with Diabetes and High Blood Pressure

Sizzling Minerals have been seen to transform the lives of hundreds of people throughout Europe and around the World. Here are just a few examples of how this has happened.

Type 2 Diabetes & High Blood Pressure - A Thing Of The Past!

“I have suffered from Type 2 Diabetes for 5 years, High Blood Pressure for 14 years approx., Osteoarthritis pain in my knee for 21 years and taking Doctor’s medication and also nutrition supplements from different companies and yet I continued to suffer. I started taking the Sizzling Minerals also the original Juice (liquid minerals). I have now weaned myself off all the doctor’s medications. My right 4th toe no longer goes over my big toe, as deformity had started. For the past three months I can now walk flat as my right foot had a tendency to arch due to the deformity that was creeping in because of Arthritis.
Thanks to Sizzling Minerals my life has improved dramatically.”

Neville, London – UK


“In February I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes which brings with it many problems, amongst them a loss of feeling in the toes, loss of energy, prone to bacterial infection and possible amputation of toes and lower limbs also possible failure of kidneys etc. A very good and trusted friend introduced me to Sizzling Minerals. Having been involved with natural health products for 18 years, the information made absolute sense so I started taking the minerals and 3 months later my blood test results showed a very marked improvement especially to those relating to Glucose and Cholesterol levels. Also results of recent eye examinations have been excellent and no further treatment or eye tests required until my next annual check up in December.
I recommend this great natural product to everyone who values their health, whether they have a specific problem or not just give them a try.”

Clive, Somerset, UK

Type 2 Diabetic

I am 67 and a Type 2 Diabetic and have been for about three years now. I have kept myself fit over the years and not excessively over weight coming in at 13st 7lbs. The Doctor put me on a combination of Diabetic drugs and reviews my progress every 6 months.
On my last visit, he was extremely pleased, so much so he informed me that my Blood Sugar level was down, my Cholesterol was down, my weight was down, my Blood Pressure was down and he stated that if I came to him now, I would not be classed as a diabetic! He then informed that he was ceasing one of my drugs and if I continue to progress like this that he would reduce my drug intact at our next meeting.
The only change to my lifestyle between Doctor’s visits was that I had started taking Simply Minerals. I attended one of the London meetings and was advised that I should take the minerals twice a day as a diabetic, which I do and will continue to do so.
Overall I certainly feel much better and have stacks of energy, so for once I am looking forward to visiting my Doctor again, and hopefully he will give me so more good news
Other differences I notice – okay not so tired, more energy, nails strong and do not break, slepp well without interruptions, no tingling in my toes – think that’s about it.

Dave Barton

Type 2 Diabetic

“I am 65 this week and a Type 2 Diabetic, like most people I over did it last Christmas - just another mince pie or chocolate forgetting I was facing another blood test in January. Imagine my surprise when my tests came back and my sugar levels and cholesterol were both down. Since I started taking Sizzling Minerals I also have a lot more energy. I work outdoors in all weathers and always have plenty of energy! I was so pleased with Sizzling
Minerals that I told all my friends and colleagues about them. People still ask me if I am going to retire but why should I? I feel great, look good and hope to carry on working for some time yet.”

Tom – Darlington

Conquered Diabetes, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol

“For some time now I have taken the Sizzling Minerals everyday the benefits are amazing. People I have recommended them to tell me they have conquered Diabetes, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, just to name a few. In my marketing of Sizzling Minerals I use acidosis as the cause of most disease and this develops through consumption of highly acidic food causing Allergies, Phlegm and Acid Reflux, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Cohn’s disease. Acidosis leads to the exhaustion of minerals in the body. The Sizzling Minerals when dissolved in high PH water neutralise all the acid in the body in a few days. One of my patients. a 51 year old Caucasian, suffered from IBS for 20 years. When I gave him samples for 4 days he reported a complete stop to his IBS taking 2 wafers a day for 4 days.”

Anthony, Pharmacology - Singapore

Blood Pressure has improved by 10% and my Diabetes under control

“Since taking Sizzling Minerals my Blood Pressure has improved by 10% and my Diabetes is now better controlled. I have reduced my insulin by over 20 units and my results are now excellent. Also something amazing has happened my hair has gone darker and no longer looks as grey and my nails grow 5 times faster. I believe thanks to Sizzling Minerals. Thanks.”

John, Darlington - UK


"I started taking these just short of a month ago now. To be honest I was a wee bit sceptical, the video etc made it seem too good to be true. Then I thought if it does work then hey great, it DOES. It’s definitely money worth spending.
A few things I've noticed are...the whites of my eyes are white, not bloodshot as usual...sleep patterns have levels are better than ever and I'm touching 40 now...workout recovery almost instant. JUST TRY IT FOR YOURSELVES"


“Star Pupil At The Surgery!”

“I have just been to the GP surgery for my annual diabetic review which, ever since I was diagnosed five years ago, has been an out-and-out disaster. I knew things were well on the mend even a few weeks after taking the Sizzling Minerals and when I wrote my last testimonial, but WOW, WOWITY, WOW, WOW, WOW... I am “star pupil” at the surgery today. Nurses I had never met before were called in to witness the improvement in my results: Blood Sugar Count 5.6 - Normal, Cholesterol 4.6 - Normal, Liver Function Tests - Normal, Rheumatism Factor - Normal, Glaucoma Eye Pressures - Normal, Blood Pressure (the constant bĂȘte noir) - NORMAL!!!... Weight - Down 5kg - Normal... and so it went on! ALL of them had to be shown the earlier results to prove the dramatic changes which had taken place. My GP was congratulating me on the improvements... something I never thought I’d ever hear. My specialist nurse was saying what a pleasure it was to relay such results rather than being the normal doom and gloom and “must-do-better-or-you’ll-die” merchant she has to be normally. I am 100% convinced all this has come about thanks to taking the Sizzling Minerals and Omega 3. Thank you, one and all... I just want to go out and let EVERYBODY know how wonderful these health giving products are.”

Fantastic Results with Diabetes 

My husband has had fantastic results with his diabetes and he has only been on the minerals since January. His specialist was so pleased with his results she has discharged him from the diabetic clinic at the hospital and referred him back to his doctor. Heather Jones
Diabetes Information Minerals help diabetes in a big way... Studies show chromium stabilize blood sugar, magnesium helps GLUT 4 receptors uptake sugar into cells, minerals support all bodily functions and may help reduce complications of diabetes such as circulation, eye damage, reduce cardiac risks. Minerals strengthen blood vessels. Also you don't get sugar cravings as much which helps with weight loss too. Just try it and let us know! Suggest also use 400mg magnesium citrate and an antioxidant formula plus krill oil.

IIeana Nguyen, Nutritionalist


I bought a supply of the Sizzling Minerals for my son who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes and has extremely painful feet. The doctor presecribed anti-epilepsy tablets for the pain and my son was taking eight of these a day.
When he started the minerals he was determined to find out if they worked and so ceased taking the anti-epilepsy tablets. Within two days the pain had completely gone and he has now been on them for three weeks and he cannot believe the improvement. Thank you from us both to Sizzling Minerals!


Type 2 Diabetic

I became a Type 2 diabetic in 2006 . When I used to test my blood sugar, I would experience blood sugar levels all over the place, from as low as 3.7 to as high as 13.9 (the normal figures are between 4 and 7). Since taking Sizzling Minerals, my blood sugar level during the last month is steady with readings between 5.2 and 6.1. So you can imagine how my life has changed dramatically thanks to Sizzling Minerals and for less than a pound a day, you can keep the doctor away.

Diabetic Review – Powerful Message

"I am insulin dependent and also have had two heart attacks. My diabetes wasn't controlling hence I was under the care of the Diabetic Specialist at our local hospital. In December this year I had a cancerous tumour removed from the right side of my mouth. The whole of the palette, jaw and teeth were removed. For two days I was in Intensive Care followed by 12 days in High Dependency where I was fed through the nose as I had a plate screwed into the top of my mouth. Whilst I was in hospital they couldn't control my sugar levels and the ward were in daily contact with my Diabetic specialist. Friends visited me in hospital and left a tube of Sizzling Minerals. I couldn't take them at the time as I was being fed through the nose. For all of those who know me well, you will know that I am a bit of a sceptic when it comes to supplements. But I was willing to give them a go. In the following weeks, at my regular cancer check ups with the hospital, the Professor was amazed at my healing and for those who know, diabetics take longer than normal to heal when they have an injury. I was given the all clear with no radio and no chemo. At my 3 month Diabetic review with the specialist in March 2014 she was astounded at my results, especially as my sugars were out of control in the hospital. She was so amazed with blood, diabetic and weight results that she discharged me from her clinic at the hospital and referred me back to my doctor for 6 monthly checks. The specialist asked me what I was doing different and at this stage I did not admit to taking the Sizzling Minerals. Her words were "whatever you are doing just keep doing it". This week I went along to see the Diabetic Nurse at my doctors not expecting any further changes. The Nurse was ecstatic. She was over the moon with my results and this time I wrote down exactly what they were. HBA1C - now this is the biggest indicator for diabetics as to what is going on inside. It shows you how much sugar is sticking to your blood cells. Well I have been as high as 122. In March it had dropped to 60 and now it's 58. The optimum is 48 so I am nearly there. My kidneys are normal. My liver is normal. My cholesterol is 4.8. The Nurse would like it at 4 however that is going the right way and I am well pleased at 4.8. I have lost another 6kg.
The blood cell clumping photo in the Sizzling Mineral brochure now makes sense to me when I relate it to my HBA1C results. It's not only about visual and physical improvements that people are seeing with this product, it's what is going on inside. So I urge everyone out there to start taking these fantastic minerals to keep your insides healthy. As they say, prevention is better than cure. And all this on one Sizzling Mineral a day. "


Type II Diabetic

I am a tablet controlled Type II diabetic. When originally diagnosed about 3 years ago my BM was 17.7 mmol. I was placed on METFORMIN 500 mg b.d (twice daily). I was experiencing tiredness,headaches,watering / stinging eyes,lower leg pains,itching, constant colds and flu to name a few. I started to take Sizzling Minerals which is a wafer tablet which contains 75 minerals. Since taking these minerals most of my symptoms have disappeared and I am now only taking one 500 mg Metformin daily. My last three Hb1Ac readings have been normal and within range. I have been told by the diabetic nurse that if my next reading is normal that I can come off all my medication. This product has certainly helped me.

Iron is important in your diet.

'Eat iron-rich foods. Iron helps in carrying the oxygen needed to burn fat. Some great sources are: shellfish, lean meats, beans and spinach.’

Having enough iron in your diet is very important.  Someone who doesn’t have sufficient iron may feel tired and look pale and there is evidence to show that a lack of iron in the diet leads to a slowing down of brain function. In children it is thought that physical and mental growth may be stunted if there is inadequate iron intake.

Iron deficiency is more common than many think. For example, it is estimated that only 65-70% of all Americans meet their daily recommended intake. When iron intake is depleted, oxygen circulates more slowly. If the body is low in iron, fatigue, irritability and headaches may occur. If the deficiency becomes significant, this can lead to anaemia. If left untreated, anaemia can be serious, with potentially life-threatening complications.

Maintaining levels of iron in the body is particularly important for babies, young children and young women, especially those who are pregnant.

The amount of iron you should consume varies with Age and Gender:

(1) The average male should consume about 8 milligrams of iron each day.

(2) For women, it varies based on the age. Women, aged 19-50 need more than most people, up to 18 milligrams. On the other hand, women over 50 only need 8 milligrams, just like males.

(3) The maximum ever recommended before toxicity might occur is 45 milligrams.

Iron requirements of children:

(1) Infants who breastfeed tend to get enough iron from their mothers until 4-6 months of age, when iron-fortified cereal can be introduced.(although breastfeeding mums should continue to take prenatal vitamins). Formula-fed infants should receive iron-fortified formula.

(2) Infants aged 7-12 months need 11 milligrams of iron a day. Babies younger than 1 year should be given iron-fortified cereal in addition to 
breast milk or an infant formula supplemented with iron.

(3) Toddlers need 7 milligrams of iron each day. Children aged 4-8 years need 10 milligrams while older children aged 9-13 years need 8 milligrams of iron each day.

(4) Adolescent boys should be getting 11 milligrams of iron a day and adolescent girls should be getting 15 milligrams. (Adolescence is a time of rapid growth and teenage girls need additional iron to replace what they lose monthly when they begin menstruating.)

(5) Young athletes who regularly engage in intense exercise tend to lose more iron and may require extra iron in their diets.

As an immediate way to combat the effects of iron deficiency in adults, supplements are most important, for they can introduce large quantities of iron very quickly. Combined with a diet of foods rich in iron, this is the way for people to recover quickly. However, because excessive iron intake can also cause health problems, you should never give your child iron supplements without first consulting your doctor.
There are even supplements that help you to absorb more of the iron you are already consuming. 

But, of course, in the long term people should change their diet to include the iron rich foods they want to eat on a regular basis.

Foods rich in iron are: meat, especially red meat, shellfish, beans, grains, fruit and vegetables.

You can improve the way your body absorbs iron by eating foods from the iron rich food list. Raw foods provide iron that is absorbed most 
efficiently and foods that are rich in vitamin C such as citrus and tomato are known to increase iron absorption.

If in doubt consult your doctor.

10 Super foods you should add to your meal plans.

Added to a sensible exercise program, the following so called, ‘super foods’ will help you to become healthier.

The ten foods shown below (in alphabetical order, not order of importance) can help your body absorb extra nutrients and vitamins.

You and your family may not like or enjoy all of them, but try them out. You never know, you could come to like them!

Add some (or all) of them to your diet and your bones will be healthier and your energy levels will be higher. They will also help you to maintain a healthy body weight and keep your digestion in order.


Almonds are a wise choice for a snack since they help keep up your energy levels between meals. Choose raw ones over processed as they won't have oil or salt added.

A 100 gram serving of raw almonds will provide 20% of your recommended daily iron intake, 21% protein and nearly 60% of your vitamin B2 recommended daily allowance (RDA). They also help strengthen your bones and teeth.


The biggest benefit of the avocado is its high mono-unsaturated fat content, which actually helps to burn undesirable fats.

It helps to keep your eyes healthy and its slow release of energy helps stabilise your blood glucose levels. (good for people on the verge of diabetes)

100g of avocado contain 10g of mono-unsaturated fat, 16% of your vitamin B6 RDA (which aids your metabolism) and 22% of your daily foliage requirement to help prevent heart disease.
Eat one or two a week to feel the benefits.

Black Beans

Another food which helps to stabilise blood sugar levels, as they are digested slowly. High in fibre, black beans will also help regulate your digestive tract and a big plus is that they are high in antioxidants.

A 100 g serving will provide 6% calcium RDA, 8g of non-animal protein and only 0.3g of fat to help maintain a healthy body weight.


It’s strange isn’t it that broccoli is probably one of the least liked vegetables because, ironically, it’s one of the best.
You must, however, take extra care when cooking it. Many people tend to over-cook it or smother it in unhealthy sauces. 

To successfully retain its high nutrient value, steam it.

As with most foods you don’t like the taste of, you will get used to it in time. Or simply combine it with the other foods on your plate so that the taste is covered up. Whichever way you eat it, it’s well worth the effort! 

High in fibre, broccoli aids your digestive system and is an excellent source of non-dairy calcium. A single serving provides more than your entire vitamin C RDA, 10% of your vitamin B6 (keeping your metabolism strong), 2.6g of fibre, and its high vitamin K content helps keep your bones, eyes and heart healthy.


Kale is very similar to spinach in many ways, but it has slightly different benefits. Try to buy it in its raw state if you can. 

The antioxidants it contains reduce the symptoms of inflammation and it is high in fibre and vitamin K.

It’s also fat free and a 100g serving will contain double your vitamins A and C RDA, and over 4g of vegetable protein.


Quinoa is a high-quality protein devoid of cholesterol or fat. It contains "smart carbs," which are low on the glycemic index and can be processed by your body without being turned into fat.

A single cup serving only contains 1.9g of fat, 10% of your daily foliate requirement, and almost 4.5g of protein.


Eat fresh salmon rather than smoked salmon. It is better for you from a nutritious point of view.  

A 100g serving contains 9% of your daily vitamin A requirement, 13% of your vitamin B1 requirement, a whopping 20g of protein, 42% of the Niacin your skin desires, and lots of Omega 3.


Spinach is rich in nutrients, readily available, relatively cheap, high in energy and low in calories.
It’s absolutely packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients which fight free radicals and provide nourishment on a cellular level. 

A typical serving will provide over half your daily requirement of vitamin A, twice your vitamin K requirements and a substantial helping of foliate, too.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are easy to cook, high in vitamins and fibre, and somewhere between a starch and a vegetable. They are good for your heart and skin, boost your immune system and provide slow release energy throughout the day. They also contain antioxidants which prevent cellular breakdown due to free radicals.

A 100g serving contains almost 4 times the daily recommendation of vitamin A, 33% vitamin C and 2g of protein.


Watermelon provides similar levels of lycopene to tomatoes, which combats heart disease and cancer.

A 100 g serving contains 11% of your vitamin A RDA and 14% of your vitamin C. It has 0.1g of fat, but it does have a high natural sugar content.

Make your own Insect Repellent.

There are many insect repellent products you can buy over the counter. Unfortunately most of them contain chemicals it's probably best not to put on your body or your children's bodies!

Why not make your own?

Here's a very simple method:


Coconut oil

Essential oils; citronella, lavender and peppermint

How to prepare

Carefully warm about a third of a cup of the coconut oil and pour into a container which has a secure lid.

Add 10 drops of each of the essential oils.

Stir carefully and allow the mixture to solidify.

In warm weather the mixture will probably liquefy, so keep in the fridge or a cool, dry place.

How to use

Take some of the mixture on the palms of your hands (it will liquefy) and then smooth onto exposed skin.


Sometimes essential oils (particularly citrus oils) can make the skin photosensitive or more likely to burn. Be sure to use a non-toxic sunblock in addition to this insect repellent.

You can find essential oils here and Coconut oil here.

Lose Weight

Lose weight by overcoming your body’s reluctance to change.

Many diets to help you to lose weight have strict rules which have to be obeyed each day of the week. Even if you find one that you can follow without too much trouble to begin with, you'll soon find that it becomes a bit of a chore because of its rules.
Usually, your normal eating habits must be thrown out of the window and you must change to a completely different way of eating. This can be tolerated for a short while, but most people soon get tired of being constrained in this way and start to go back to their old ways. And guess what? They put any weight they may have lost back on and keep on going up above their previous weight.
So what can you do?
Well fortunately, you can lose weight without a strict, immediate diet regime.
You are probably aware of the fact that the body and brain simply hate change. Why do so many people stay with the same bank, gas or electricity company, etc. even though they know that they could most probably make savings by changing to another company?
It’s because people hate the bother of change.
How can you overcome your body’s natural resistance to change?
The truth is you have to be a bit tricky and fool your body into thinking that you’re not really changing anything much!
If you take small steps day by day, week by week, month by month, your body won’t notice anything is happening. But by the end of six months, let’s say, you’ll have managed a huge change in your eating and daily-life habits. And you’ll have done it without your body noticing. So it won’t want to go back to anything!
What you are doing by losing weight without dieting is developing a healthier lifestyle. This means you’ll lose weight by gradually shedding the extra pounds and you'll also change the way you approach life.
The best thing is that you will not slip back ever again, because now the fact that your body doesn’t like change will work in your favour. It won’t want to change back to the way you were!
Are there any disadvantages then?

Herbs that Help with Weight Loss

One of the things that has been interesting over the last few months and years is the increasing enthusiasm for the use of herbs in weight loss programs. One of the obvious reasons is because, unlike some other additions to menus, herbs do not have any side effects. People who have already started to use herbal remedies have seen the benefits and have been able to show how helpful herbs can be.
Yes, regular exercise and keeping control over your calorie intake are vitally important in any weight loss program that you work out for yourself. But to make your life even better, please do take a look at the advantages that using herbal remedies can give you. As always with anything new to you, though, you should seek medical advice, especially if you’re on any medication.
Most people who take any kind of interest in weight loss are aware that, if you want to lose weight, the simple formula to follow is; calories in must be less than calories out. By the way, most people say they want to lose ‘weight’, when what they actually want to lose is ‘fat’ which is not necessarily the same thing. See my post here for an explanation.

Some Herbs that can help in your quest for weight loss:

 (1) Green Tea Extract can boost your metabolism.

In a study as long ago as 2005, it was discovered that a group of men taking green tea extract daily for three moths lost an average of between 2 and 3 pounds more than a control group of men who did not use green tea extract. Reported in an article in the ‘American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’, it was stated that the men took 690 milligrams of green tea extract a day. Previous studies had shown that use of green tea has a similar weight loss effect in women too.
You see green tea contains antioxidants that scientists believe are capable of increasing the body’s metabolism and the elimination of fats from the body
Take capsules or add liquid extract to drinks or mix with food. The author of ‘Feed Your Tiger: The Asian Diet Secret for Permanent Weight Loss and Vibrant Health’, Letha Hadady suggested that green tea could be added to meals like soups or spaghetti sauce.

(2) Fish Oil is excellent for getting rid of fat from the body.

In 2007, Australian researchers confirmed that fish oil and exercise both reduced body fat.  But they also found, reported in the ‘American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’, that combining the two was even more effective.

Source of Fish Oil

(3)  Ginger
You may gain weight because of the food lodged in your digestive system. Not only does ginger reduce the stomach’s acidity, but it also cleanses your body of the food lodged in your digestive system.

Source of Ginger

(4) Guggul enhances metabolism
The primitive herb of Guggul is regarded as a substance that helps people to lose weight. A study carried out at the ‘University of Nebraska’ and ‘Beth Israel Medical Center’ in New York concluded that people who took guggul while exercising lost an average of 4.5 to 5 pounds extra compared with people who exercised without taking guggul over a 6 week period.

 (5) Glucomannan
Glucomannan delays the absorption of glucose from the intestines and helps you lose weight.

Save your Children from being Obese

Children don’t become obese by accident. I know that the few extra pounds to start with can easily go unnoticed, but the signs that a child is becoming overweight are usually fairly obvious after a certain stage has been reached. For a start the clothes that have to be bought as the child grows in size are a fairly obvious indicator that growth other than just height is happening.

It's the parents’ responsibility to prevent their children from becoming obese. If your child is becoming overweight, then you need to do something about it. Do not wait until your child is obese. Obesity is something that must be prevented.

If you follow the advice given in this article you’ll go a long way to helping your child to become fit and healthy. (and will probably become fit and healthy yourself. What a great side-effect!)

What are the common causes of children becoming obese?

The most obvious causes are overeating and lack of exercise.

(a) If your child is constantly snacking between meals, especially if the ‘food’ is crisps or chocolate or things like that, then the fat will just grow and grow.
(b) If your child is also quite inactive, for example, sits watching TV or playing games on the computer most of the time, then this is a contributory factor to the increase in weight.

So the first thing you must do is to change your children’s eating habits.
Slowly get your children either to cut out the snacks or make them healthier. Slowly is the important word here and a gradual introduction of any changes you make will certainly be most beneficial.
Then you should see exactly how healthy your children’s meals are and the first things to eliminate are the sweet foods; chocolate cakes, donuts, etc. (but remember, slowly does it)
Breakfast is an important meal. Start the day off in a healthy way. Fruits, low fat milk and wheat cereals, etc. for breakfast is a great way to start the day.

Then for the rest of the day’s meals try to introduce as many vegetables as you can. This can be difficult, I know.
One way I tried to persuade my children to eat more vegetables was to cook about six different ones for all the family. We’d sit down together and everyone had to eat at least a small amount of each vegetable, even if it was only one pea!
The other method to increase the amount of vegetables eaten was to mash all the vegetables except peas and potatoes together and present everyone with meat (chicken or other lean meat) or fish, peas, potatoes and a multi-coloured vegetable mush. Magically they all ate the mush and enjoyed it!
If eating vegetables becomes the normal thing to do for everyone (yes, adults included!) then it shouldn’t be too long before everyone is eating in a healthier way.
The second important way to keep your children from becoming obese is to introduce them to physical exercise.
Now the most common sorts of exercise are walking, running and swimming. They’re all aerobic type exercises and are good for all round health.
Sports, such as football, rugby, netball and hockey, either at school or at a local club are also great for keeping off those extra pounds. Others are gymnastics, karate and judo.
For the non-sporty children, you can find other activities they enjoy doing and change them into qualifying aerobic activities (See my article about changing an activity to a qualifying aerobic activity)
Explain the benefits of weight loss to your children. Also tell them about the bad things that can happen to those who don’t take enough exercise. Being the same size as the man in this picture not only looks terrible, but it is extremely unhealthy!

Mention the fact that obese people are more prone to heart diseases and diabetes. Telling them how some silly people make fun of obese people can sometimes be a clincher to persuade them to exercise.

If you maintain a good diet and get involved in qualifying aerobic exercise regularly, then your children will realize how important you feel this is and they’ll follow your example. .
Become fit and healthy together.
