1. START CHEWING: Eat your
fruit instead of juicing. It’ll
fill you up faster without all
the sugar. It takes about 4 oranges to
produce just one glass of OJ.
2. MIX IT UP: Make sure to
always add a protein when
you’re eating fruits. This keeps
your blood sugar from spiking. Try berries
with plain Greek yogurt.
3. EAT FAT TO LOSE IT:
Throwing some essential fats
into your diet will make your
body burn fat much faster. Try avocados
PENCIL IT IN: Prioritize your
fitness and schedule it in just as
you would a meeting or any other
HYDRATE: Have a cold glass
of water as soon as you wake up
to get your metabolism going.
Drinking more water increases energy
levels and eliminates water retention
caused by salty foods.
GO WITH A PRO: Find an
Exercise Physiologist to create
a custom fitness program and
keep you on track.
QUANTITY: Get the most out
of your workouts by targeting
large muscle groups like legs, chest and
back. Use complex movements like squats
and pull-ups to recruit more muscle in
SLEEP: You’ll have more energy for
your workouts but most importantly,
sleeping well regulates your
hormone levels and boost metabolism.
FORGET THE ALL OR
NOTHING MENTALITY: Even
if you have only 10 minutes today
for your workout, don’t skip it. Make every
minute count, it’ll be enough to make a
difference and keep you on track.
