If you are trying to get healthy and fit, there are a few small but important changes you can make to your lifestyle in order to form healthy habits. Want to make it easier? Make these changes with a friend from your apartment in Roanoke.
Promise yourself to stop buying soda. All of those calories add up surprisingly fast. There are 150 calories in a can of Pepsi, and if you drink large fountain soda there are even more. To avoid excess sugar and calories, drink water instead.
Cook with fresh food
If health is important, start cooking your meals. This helps you lose weight too. Use fresh food too, the fewer processed foods you eat the healthier your diet will be.
Walk whenever possible
To keep the weight off and improve heart health, walk more. Every little bit counts, but try to walk briskly for at least 40 minutes a day. How? Walks with the dog, with friends, walking to work or after dinner.
Forget the scale
Don’t get on the scale! Your weight doesn’t matter, how you feel matters. The objective is long-term health, not a number. Make healthy choices and lifestyle changes and the weight comes off by itself.
