Teen Health: Too Much Exercise

Posted by drg. Ardyan Gilang Rahmadhan SKG. On 9:10 PM

Everyone knows that exercise could does many great things for your health. It can strengthen your heart and muscles, lower your body fat, and reduce your risk of many diseases. But, too much of a good thing doesn't always good for you.

Experts recommend that teens do some moderate to vigorous physical activity at least 60 minutes every day. Most young people exercise much less than this recommended amount (which also can be a problem for different reasons), but some people - such as athletes - do more than this recommended suggestion.

There are many reasons from young peoples by doing compulsive exercise. They are bombarded with images from advertisers of the ideal body: slim and thin for women; strong and muscular for men. To reach these goals, they sometimes develop eating disorder such as bulimia and anorexia. But some people who grow frustrated with the results from diets alone may overexercise to speed up weight loss.

To be healthy, your body needs exercise and activity. But, it also need rest. To much exercising could lead to injuries like fractures and muscle strains. Compulsive exercise, especially when it is combined with an eating disorder, can cause serious and permanent health problems, and in extreme cases, death.

How do you know that you have a compulsive exercise habit? Try to answer these questions below:
* force yourself to exercise, even if you don't feel well?
* prefer to exercise rather than being with friends?
* become very upset if you miss a workout?
* base the amount you exercise on how much you eat?
* have trouble sitting still because you think you're not burning calories?
* worry that you'll gain weight if you skip exercising for a day?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you may have a problem. Don't try to change your body into an unrealistically lean shape. Talk with your doctor, dietitian, coach, athletic trainer, or other adult about what a healthy body weight is for you and how to develop healthy eating and exercise habits.

    Teeth is equally important like other parts of the body. But we tend to forget that. We just have fun eating, so we eat all eat junk food. But everyone should take care of it.
