The cumulative effect of small changes are key to improving both your health and fitness level. Many people are looking for the home run or the secret “ingredient” when it comes to trying lose weight or improve their fitness level. Implementing a few of the recommended changes throughout your day, coupled with your daily workout, is a great start to help you change the way you look and feel over the course of the next few weeks.

Morning

  • Drink more water first thing in the morning.
  • Make sure your eating breakfast.
  • Try squeezing in more activity like walking/hiking before work (start wearing a pedometer).

Afternoon

  • Workout at lunch time if you’re able, and if not, take a walk.
  • Add more protein to your lunch and avoid bread and fried foods.
  • Stand more at work rather than sitting for 6-8 hrs (make a standing work station).

Evening

  • Make dinner your smallest meal of the day.
  • No eating within three hours of going to bed.
  • Cut down on your screen and TV time.

Finally, throughout the Morning/Afternoon/Evening watch your added sugar and salt intake – this one simple tip will pay back big dividends in no time! If you’re a female, work on consuming <100 calories a day of added sugar (25 grams/day) and if you’re a male, work on taking in <150 calories a day (38 grams/day).
