Facebook is making you fat. No doubt about it. I know you don’t want to hear it, but it’s true. As much as you want to deny it. how long have you spent on Facebook in the past week? How long have you spent on exercising? For the majority of America, Facebooking dominates working out. You take your day, figure out how long was spent on Facebook, and how long was spent on exercising, we all know which wins out. But you like Facebook, you say! So do I! I also like donuts, but I don’t eat them every day. I get that it’s a social networking site, and you keep up with your friends, work, and your make believe farm. But what if you spent some of the time off the farm, and in the gym? I know people that spend HOURS on Facebook each day, chatting up new friends, and Facebook stalking old ones. Then at the end of the day, they say they don’t have enough time to work out. You are kidding me, right? It’s again, down to a matter of priorities. These people would rather be in the online loop rather than in smaller pants. Most of it is useless information, and I’ve kind of realized this when I turned my page in to a fan page and stopped getting the updates. Weird, how all that stuff I thought was important before, I don’t miss. I’m not asking you to quit Facebook altogether. I’m not crazy. It’s a useful and fun world. But what I do suggest, is that you prioritize. Just like we reward children for doing their homework, do what MATTERS first. Whether that’s your work, or your work out, do it before you sign in each day. Limit it. People only answer emails for business once a day. Only look on Facebook once a day, AFTER you answer your emails, and exercise. Is that really hard to ask? I know a ton of people aren’t doing that, and if they just did that one little thing, would probably lose a good 10 pounds over the course of a month. Technology, as cool as it is, has made us lazy, and Facebook, right now, is basically king…. of making you fat. Now get off Facebook and go work out!
