Exercise, Nutrition, and Health: Keeping it Simple | Jason Kilderry | TEDxDrexelU

By | 18 May 2020

The speaker is very passionate about exercise, nutrition and health. He reflects that in the talk.

Jason found his passion for athletics, health, and fitness at an early age. Throughout his childhood, Jason’s athletic career revolved around basketball and baseball. When he reached high school, Jason decided he would one day like to enlist in the military, which led him to focus on his increasing his overall health and fitness on a regular basis. Inevitably, his enrollment in the military did not occur. But all the training he had done in preparation for the military left Jason in the best shape of his life, and that is when he truly realized his passion for health, fitness, and endurance sports. Jason started pursing a career in the health and fitness field at a local community college, and then transferred to Rowan University, where he also ran cross-country. Juggling academics, athletics, and a part-time job as a personal trainer was difficult, but it allowed Jason to realize that balancing all aspects of life is a challenge most health and fitness enthusiasts face

    Poor sound quality agreed. The presentation with the engaging photos is smart. However, what this presentation misses is something new added to what everyone else is saying.

    Really inspiring talk Jason. It is hard to maintain a healthy, balanced diet nowadays with junk foods priced significantly less than the healthy ones. This makes it really easy for people to reach out for these unhealthy foods and have negative impacts on their health.

    The best american video on health ever. He just mentioned all the thumb rules which are gonna work for hundreds of years more, rather than building some intellectual theories only to be challenged the next day.

    a diet is for life not just to get in to a dress or look good for your holiday . Create a good eating habit and you won't even notice your doing it after a while .

    I do think the keto diet is a perfect diet. It just depends on whether you can find the time and effort to afford the transition phase. But once the transition is complete I imagine it would be nirvana.

    Everybody, please remember this, these are the basics. If you find that wheat makes you sluggish, cut it out. But you need these fundamentals first, then start making those choices. Make the small steps and find what works for you. Nough said.

    This works as it's how I live my life and I'm a healthy weight and have no illnesses.  Too many people try to make drastic changes which are doomed to failure.  Educate yourself about good diet and exercise (but keep it simple!), learn to cook, spend more time moving.  Yes, it's all a bit boring and is a long term plan, maybe that's why many people do not want to hear the message!?

    Meat (grass fed/ not tampered with) doesn't make anybody sick.  I eat meat although not on a regular basis and I am very healthy.

    This guy is way off based when he says "meat is fine." Extensive scientific research from countless studies has shown that more than small amounts of meat (and that includes fish, beef, pork, and polutry) promotes numerous diseases and reduces longevity. For extensive documentation, read the book Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman.
