Diet and Nutrition

 

Nadir is 35 years old and loves his job as a computer programmer. He’s gained about 15 lb since he graduated from college, but he thinks that’s probably normal. He loves eating out and is very glad he can now afford to do so two or three times a week. He never really enjoyed sports and generally enjoys sedentary hobbies like reading, playing board games, and watching movies. At his last physical, his blood pressure was 150/95 mm Hg. His doctor prescribed blood pressure-lowering medication and also recommended that he start to exercise regularly and try to lose some weight. Nadir likes his current lifestyle and would rather just take the medication to keep his blood pressure under control.

Why would it be a good idea for Nadir to exercise and modify his eating habits, rather than simply taking the medication?

     Because Nadir is not very motivated to make lifestyle and behavioral changes, what suggestions would you make to him?

I received my essay early this morning after I had placed an order last night. I was so amazed at how quickly they did my work. The most surprising thing is that I was not asked to pay for extra due to the short notice!! I am a happy student
