Eating Right, Drinking Right?

P_PyramidPlatePeople tend to fall in a trend of bad old habits and struggle to push themselves in the right direction. I know getting started is always the hardest part of any process. Not only eating and drinking right will increase your metabolism but getting an adequate amount of sleep will give the energy to perform for the next day. It doesn’t matter how many vegetables you eat, if you consume more calorie intake you will find it hard on losing your target weight. You should try to at least drink a gallon of water per day to avoid dehydration and to flush your system out. I found that eating early and portioning your sizes will indeed keep you slimmer in size.

• Processed Foods is a NO GO
• Avoid drinking juices and sugar
• Don’t Indulge
