o Have a plan, define the goal and what success looks like. Without a plan, success is unattainable.
o Have a specific overall goal, specific meal plan and an exercise plan.
o You can achieve a better workout if you eat better.
Summary: If you have a plan with specific benchmarks, you will have small victories along the way and will know what your next step will be.
o Stay away from juices - fruit juice has as much calories as soda, and sugar. And there is no fiber.
o Go more than 4-5 hours without eating. We turn Ravenous!
o Goal is to have a balanced diet. Moderation in all things.
o Start off your day with a good balanced meal. It will keep you full and give you sustained energy.
