Health and Fitness
As we all know, Nanny, the media, the medical profession and various self appointed "health experts" merrily bombard us on a daily basis with propaganda about the importance of taking regular exercise and of being "fit".
On that point, would the above "experts" care to define exactly what "fit/fitness" actually is?
Anyhoo, I was more than gemused to learn today that tonight's Horizon will be about how one only need to take vigorous intense exercise of around 3 minutes a week in order to remain "fit" (no definition of course as to what "fit" actually means).
I was also extremely gemused to see that the "experts" have finally admitted to what the rest of us have known all along, namely that different people respond differently to exercise (ie we are all different, and each of us will "benefit from/be harmed by" exercise in different ways). The scientific buzzwords are "responders" and "non responders"
This of course means that the "one size fits all" prescription by Nanny and others of the type and duration of exercise is of course bollocks!
As to what "fit" actually means, here is my definition:
You are fit if you are able to conduct your daily life without any discomfort, undue effort or distress.
Therefore if you daily life consist of drinking 8 pints a day, and you are able to do this without any distress or discomfort, then you are fit!
