So, you want to live a healthy lifestyle, eat well and feel better? You’ve been thinking about it but not really sure where to start? The biggest challenge is actually maintaining a healthy lifestyle, keeping it sustainable for the long term. I’ve tried all kinds of new age diets, meal programs and a variety of other concoctions. The problem is they all had a strategy to lose weight and feel better until I got to where I wanted to be, but then what? The key is, whenever you begin something, is to ask yourself: Can I maintain this for the long term? A select few changes in eating and lifestyle habits can have an enormous and long lasting positive impact on your body. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to change your whole life and throw out everything in your fridge! I spoke with Ruthy Tanenbaum, a certified holistic nutritionist, she pointed out 3 improvements that almost anyone can begin with. You can check out her web site here: www.rtnutrition.ca

Breakfast: Try to eat breakfast within the first hour of waking up to ensure that your blood glucose levels (insulin) don’t take a dive. The better your nutrition is in the morning, the less likely you are to splurge later in the day.

Hydration: It’s easy to forget, but consider this: your body runs on water, it regulates temperature, carries nutrients, oxygen and cushions your joints and flushes out unwanted toxins. Did you know that even a slight dehydration can compromise your mental alertness?

Sugar: Now, nobody expects you to eliminate sugar completely but one good example is reducing your intake of soft drinks and other high calorie, sugar based beverages. They are highly addictive, contribute to dehydration and can cause your body to begin storing fat instead of burning it. This happens because your body needs important vitamins and minerals to digest the sugar and your body will draw on them when they should instead be used for fat burning and muscle building. Sounds like the complete opposite of what I want my body doing!

So let’s get started; let me know how it goes for you! As always, I will leave you with a relating inspiring quote.
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
– Goethe

I am well aware of hydration. I always take 8 to 10 glasses of water every day because it is also the same as the tips that I found in SC Luxury Mag. I'm just hoping to find more tips on how to lose more weight and probably drain more toxins out of my body.
