Seven Simple Steps to a Healthier Lifestyle
1-Goal setting… Goal getting!
Set your goals and make a game plan to reach them... write it all down!
Plan rewards for when you reach your goals... and be sure to take them!
Aim to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day!
(Eg. 200lb person would drink 100oz daily)
Increase gradually and if you’re chilly, herbal tea is a great option too.
3-Fuel your body!
Get your metabolism fired up. Add in more nutritionally dense food choices!
Add in more plant based foods!
Simply adding in a couple more fruit and veggies daily can boost your nutritional intake.
No need to be hungry- starving yourself will stall your progress!
