Last week I spoke about ditching diets and just eating healthier. Changing your eating life style will lead to success. Here is another tip for a lifetime of success.

Here is a different approach. Try eating more vegetables with each meal. Eat lean proteins and dairy, whole grains and fruits, drink more water. Cut out all of the extra sugar and fatty foods. That’s all. I am not saying eat 1 slice of dry toast for breakfast, a salad with fat free dressing for lunch and a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese for dinner. I am talking real foods and real amounts. Eat until you feel full and satisfied, not stuffed and ready to explode. (Stopping at full and satisfied may be something that you have to retrain your body and mind how to do, I know I did)

Add some exercise to your routine. You don’t need to do P90X to get the benefits of exercise. Just do more than you are doing right now. If you don’t do anything, take a brisk walk for 10 minutes. This again is a life style change, not all or nothing.

Your body does adapt. Once your walking becomes effortless, add a little more. Either increase your speed, add a few extra minutes or add more of an incline. All things to increase your heart rate and get your body stronger.

Next week I will talk about adding some variety to your healthy changes. Remember..small changes lead to big results.
