Here is the list:
- Take A Deep Breath
You’re starting on a great adventure, and your breath gives you energy to keep the momentum going. Plus, oxygen is essential to a healthy body. Breathe deep and let it do its magic.
- Drink Water—Lots Of Water!
When you’re dehydrated, you limit your body’s natural ability to burn fat. Skip the soda, cut the coffee, and drink at least a gallon of water each day.
- Stay Away From Fad Diets
When it comes to food, use common sense. Aim for three meals a day containing a moderate portion (about the size of your palm) of lean protein, a moderate portion (about the size of your fist) of carbohydrates, and a small amount (about the size of your thumb nail) of butter or olive oil. In between meals, enjoy two or three small snacks such as an apple, a yogurt, or a handful of carrots.
- Get Moving
Even small things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking for a half an hour after dinner instead of watching TV can change your entire outlook on life.
- Love Yourself Now
There’s no one else like you in the entire world, and the shape you’re in doesn’t define your value as a person. Learn to respect your uniqueness and enjoy the process of getting fit and healthy as much as the results.
