DO THESE 5 THINGS AND STAY HEALTHY
If you do, talk to someone about quitting.
Eat a Healthy Diet.
Eat a variety of foods including fruits, vegetables, animal or vegetable proteins and grains. Limit saturated fat intake. Read my top 10 nutrition tips. You know what food is; you know what’s mass produced and whipped up to pass as food.
Be Physically Active.
20-30 minutes most days of the week oughta do the trick. That’s all it takes to maintain your weight. If you have a little weight to lose bump up your physical activity. Either way, choose activities you enjoy.
Stay at a Healthy Weight.
Don’t let portion sizes get away from you! Balance the number of calories you eat with the number of calories you burn off in activity. Calculate your daily calorie burn. Not quite at your healthy weight? Aim for a 500 calorie deficit a day to drop weight at a healthy rate. That means cut 500 calories out of your diet, burn an additional 500 calories through physical activity (spin class, 5 mile jog) or do some combination of physical activity and dietary cut.
Drink Alcohol Only in Moderation
One drink a day for women, two a day for men. Otherwise you’re poisoning yourself, fool! That’s 12 oz. of beer, 5 oz. of wine, or 1.5 oz. 80-proof distilled spirits.
