Being Healthy is the New FABULOUS

Be the Healthy, NEW You
Who doesn't want to look good this spring? By following these 5 steps, not only will you be on your way to a healthy lifestyle, you’ll also be on your way to a healthy, fabulous looking body! Look marvelous in those trendy spring pieces, fit with the perfect shoe and accessories, while enjoying a night out with your friends with the spotlight being on YOU, of course.

Five ways to lose weight this spring

The Less calories the Merrier
Everyone loves tasty food, but “the better tasting, the unhealthier it is”. Stay away from foods such as packaged easy-cook meals, fatty products and fast food restaurants, fried food, extra sugary products and unhealthy carbs because they are NO GOOD! Incorporate low fat products, protein such as beans and soy products, whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables. Avoid eating at night and try eating dinner earlier in the day. Eating when you’re most active and giving your digestive system a break helps to regulate your weight.
Home Is Where the Health Is
If you are someone who enjoys the luxury of eating out at restaurants then only do it once a day. If you’re out for breakfast, then lunch and dinner should be eaten at home. At least 2 meals should be a home-made meal so that you’ll be able to monitor the ingredients going into your food. Think smaller portions when eating out or at home. Order an appetizer instead of a main dish or split a meal with a friend while eating out. At home, use smaller dishes and think of serving sizes realistically. You can always go back for seconds!

Positive Energy Is the Best Energy
Being healthy isn’t only about what you eat; it’s also about your mental and emotional well being. Surround yourself with PEMS energy- physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. Exercise regularly, focus on optimism, refrain from email, social media & text messages once a day, track your food intake, chase your dreams, be more appreciative, eat slowly, stay energetic, sustain a healthy eating plan, practice awareness, keep a journal, do one thing at a time and take a power nap.

Nothing Beats Exercise
Set fitness goals and act on them. By incorporating exercise into your daily schedule such as 30-45 minutes of cardio and strength developing exercises at least twice a week, will help get rid of those extra pounds once you’re eating well. Keep track of your fitness activities and as time passes you can adjust your workout to your preference and ability. If you’re having trouble planning an exercise schedule, contact a Personal Trainer for assistance.                      

Water, a Thirst Quencher
Not only is water a thirst quencher, but it also helps with weight loss, energy, healthy skin, digestive problems, the risk of cancer and better exercise. In order to prevent dehydration, drink a glass of water when you wake up, with your meals, in between meals and during and after exercise.
