Living a healthy life reaches far beyond the depths of reality and plagues the minds of those in the animated world. Sailor Moon “slim city” originally aired in the U.S. on September 13, 1995. The scene of this episode begins with Serena weighing herself on a scale and determining she needs to lose weight because she gained ½ a pound. The concept of gaining ½ a pound and wanting to lose it may seem unrealistic; however it’s not. Some individuals sense when their body has changed; whether it’s a small change or a big change.
The main character, Serena, starved herself in an attempt to lose weight; which depleted her energy and hindered her from completing various functions throughout the day. Starving yourself should never be an option when trying to lose weight because the body will go into survival mode from the lack of energy. You should make a great effort to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks a day. Consuming meals during the stated meal periods will provide your body with sufficient energy to complete various daily activities. Deficiency in energy will modify the place that your body collects its energy from. The body will obtain its energy from fat and protein storages, instead of its main energy source; which are carbohydrates. Fat and protein storages are significant in being your body’s emergency supply center when your body is running low on carbohydrates. Individuals should never rely heavily on the body’s backup source of energy because there is always room for replenishing with fresh energy.
Luna, Serena’s trusty guardian, suggests that Serena practice discipline and self control when consuming food products. Luna gave Serena great advice that is very beneficial to residents in Columbus. As you prepare for festivals such as: the Asian Festival, Juneteenth, and more, take Luna’s advice to heart and start practicing discipline and self control today.
