♦ We've all heard the advice to drink 6-8 glasses of water per day. Hydration is so important to keep our bodies moving, keep our skin supple and our joints moving. Drinking plenty of water can also help keep appetites in check.
♦ It can be difficult to get all the nutrients our bodies need so I recommend taking at least a daily multivitamin. Good quality vitamin supplements can really boost your body's ability to assimilate the nutrients it needs to perform well.
♦ Be sure to eat whole foods and smart snacks. Stay away from processed foods. Many wellness experts suggest eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day to keep your energy level consistent. Be careful to avoid as much sugar content as you can.
♦ Make sure you get a balanced combination of protein, good fats and complex carbohydrates.
♦ Keep blood sugars at an even level by avoiding foods made with refined white flour and by eating on a regular schedule that fits your body's needs.
♦ A good rule of thumb concerning calorie intact is to maintain 10 times your body weight with the foods you eat.
♦ Limit caffeine intact to only two drinks per day.
