A Few Fitness And Diet Tips

One of my very best friends is a Personal Training Expert so I asked her for a few fitness and diet tips to help me get the most out of my daily health routine. Here are the 10 tips she told me:

Fitness & Diet Tips
1. Do a cardio workout in the morning on an empty stomach, this will give you the highest fat loss.

2. Walking (3mph) at an incline burns more fat then running or walking flat.

3. Eat a high protein breakfast within the 1st hour of waking.

4. Eat at least 5 small healthy meals a day.

5. Do not eat dinner after 8:00p.m. because your metabolism has slowed down to prepare itself for sleep.

6. Try to replace your sliced bread with Romain lettuce leafs.

7. Try not to eat any bad carbohydrates or starches for dinner, only the good ones. 
Example of good: broccoli, spinach, asparagus, edamame.... 

8. Allow yourself to have one cheat day a week.
If you don't give yourself one cheat day where you can eat that treat that you have been craving all week you could be in danger of binge eating.

9. Only weigh and measure yourself once a week so you don't get discouraged.
 Average weight loss is 2-3 lbs a week so weighing yourself once a week will help you tell if you need to step it up the next week.

10. Drink lots of  water!
Men: 13 cups a day (104oz)    Women: 9 cups a day (72oz)
