We all know that it’s NOT healthy to spend all night on the couch watching a two-hour episode of “The Voice” . . . eating pizza . . . guzzling Cokes, and maybe a not-yet-canceled light beer.  But that’s all the energy we have.

In a new poll, 35% of adults say they’re “too tired” to live a healthy lifestyle, and YOUNG PEOPLE are more zonked than older folks.

48% of 25- to 34-year-olds say they’re too exhausted . . . compared to 23% of people 55 and older.  And 40% of women are too tired, versus 29% of men.

38% of adults say they lack the motivation to be healthy.  Other excuses include:  Lack of time . . . lack of confidence . . . high gym fees . . . and food prices.

Experts would remind us that more exercise BOOSTS energy, as do healthier diets and better sleep.  (But us lazy people would remind these experts that exercise, healthy food, and longer sleep all require TIME.)
