A good friend asked me for some fitness and nutrition tips and this is what I wrote to him.

 

  1. Lots of sleep,
  2. Lots of water.
  3. In the evenings after 4 PM, take in very little to zero sugar or carbohydrates.
  4. You have to move your body every day no matter what. Even an hour walk a day will completely change your life. Also, stretch & yoga.
  5. I would throw in lifting weights once or twice a week because building muscle increases your metabolism, bone destiny, testosterone and lean muscle mass.
  6. On the emotional level: just loving yourself, being kind and gentle and caring toward yourself on purpose.
  7. I would also write out a clear goal of the measurement that you want to be by a specific date and make sure that you’re living your life in a way that is taking you in that direction.

The umbrella that covers everything is FUN!

You have to find a way to make it all fun. Or you won’t stick with it.

Also J.E.R.F

Just

Eat

Real

Food

Nothing processed.

I’m sure there’s more that could be added but there’s a good place to start. Have fun.
