[01:40] Today's topic is introduced; "Being Healthy". Also to be discussed are the different aspects of fitness.
[02:50] One of the key ways to assess your health level is to go for a checkup by your doctor, who will evaluate your Blood pressure, blood sugar, and check for early signs of illnesses like cancer.

[29:45] Deniece describes her health journey, highlighting how much easier it was from the onset because of her energetic nature and interest in dance. Her efforts were directed at cardio exercises for weight loss as well as diet.
[43:16] Our relationship with food has to change, it has to be fuel for our body and not something that we indulge in. If you see food as fuel then you will be very mindful of what you put inside your body, and if you're intentional with your food, then you will feel the result of that.
[47:32] Concerning dieting, it is important to have a goal, and plan out how to achieve the goal. You plan your goal based on how you want to feel eventually, and not just what to do.
[53:00] For listeners who are interested in weight loss, fitness, or diet changes, they must understand that it is a journey, to not get distracted by unfiltered information. If necessary, also get professional assistance.
