Love that donut? cut it up!

Enjoy your favorite pastry every now and then but don’t eat the entire thing in one sitting!

Cut it into at LEAST 4 pieces (the more the better) then have a small snack before, during or right after activity.

You don’t need to cut out a desert, just eat wisely and in small bits!…

Just starting your fitness regime?

Don’t worry if it seems very difficult. It will get better over time. 

DON’T get discouraged or put yourself down either. You are there, getting it done.

The soreness and tiredness will pass as you move on to a newer, healthier YOU!…

Avocados!

Don’t neglect avocados in your diet. A source of “good fat” and many nutrients.

A typical serving of avocado (100 g) is moderate to rich in several B vitamins and vitamin K, with good content of vitamin C, vitamin E and potassium (right table, USDA nutrient data).
