Love that donut? cut it up!

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!…

Invest in a fitness watch!

Invest in a fitness watch!

Just a few of the benefits to having a fitness watch strapped to your body below:

  • See how many steps you’ve taken so far.
  • Many watches feature a reminder to get up and stretch after a specified time.
  • Set daily goals.

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).

Don’t take a pill – take a hill!

Don’t rely on chemicals and pills to keep your health in line.

Ok you don’t need to own mountain climbing equipment like the picture shows!

Even a run up the stairs is good for your cardiovascular system and gets your heart pumping!

Beware “Fat-Free”

fatfreeFat-free food sounds great, no?

NO!

A lot of “fat-free” food is loaded with something else that you need to beware – SUGAR!

Remember to always flip the labels and read what’s on the back – not just on the front.…

Water it down

Are you drinking your calories?

Lots of drinks have a LOT of sugar.

Don’t drink soda? Drink fruit juices? (OJ, cranberry, etc)

Those are also really HIGH in sugar.

Keep the heavily sugared drinks down to a small portion.

If you’re thirsty, go for a big glass of good ol’ H2O.…

Recently diagnosed with Diabetes? Don’t have a “few regular meals” ….

I didn’t wait to have a few “regular meals” after the diagnosis.

I changed my eating that SAME night. You should also do this approach.

I highly recommend that you change your diet ASAP. It’s not as bad as you think and a NECESSARY part of Diabetes recovery.…

Don’t diet….Meal plan instead!

Remember the first 3 letters of the word “Diet” – DIE!

That’s how you may feel after being on one of these.

A good balanced nutritional plan is what you’ll need to be able to sustain and enjoy effective weight loss.…
