Enjoy the experirence …
The word “diet” comes from the greek word “diaita,” meaning “a way of life.” It’s not just about the food you hear but rather about sharing it with friends and family and taking time to stop and enjoy the experience..

2. Save room for teo more bites..
Practicing this simple habit has two great benefits: It’s a completely painless way to save calories from the extra food you are not eating, which can lead to slow, steady weight loss over time. It also teaches you to pay more attention and listen to your body, which is one of the best ways to stay healthy and feel your best long term!

3. Start with breakfast…
Every morning, I start my day by fueling my body with nutrients it needs to stay healthy. (That’s called breakfast!) My favourites are an egg over easy on whole grain toast with sliced tomato and greek yogurt with berries. It helps me stat focused in the morning on getting my work equipments to work…

4. Challenge yourself…
It may sound completely absurd, but try brushing your teeth with your opposite hand. Doing so will force you to think with a different part of your brain, helping to foster creative thinking. Within days, you will notice a cascade of new ideas that may just have you trying tofix next week, kickboxing next month or half marathon by the end of the year!

5. Include more peruvian superfoods..
Foods like mace powder, pichuberries and starseed sacha inchi seeds are loaded with nutrients and a great addition to smoothies to boost your workout.

6. Increase your energy naturally…
I know that sounds simple, but i read recently that only 6 percent of Africans get the recommended five to six servings of vegetables daily. Make it a goal to add at least one more vegetable into your day and just watch your energy level soon…

7. Focus on self-care…
Every day, wake up and think, “What is one thing i can do today for me that would make this day the best day ever.”
When you do things you enjoy, be it a run, mediation or other hobby, you become happier, which helps you make healthier choices throughout the day.

8. Take a tea break…
This not only helps keep you centered but also helps keep you hydrated. Up to 60% of your body is made of water, and it’s important to replenish that supply throughout the day to keep your energy up!

9. Try new foods…
So many illnesses and health -related problems could be avoided if we just ate more produce. Replace one thing that you would normally eat with a new fruit or a vegetable. Not only does this keep healthy eating interesting, but you also may end up trying something that you didn’t know you liked…

10. Get enough sleep…
Make a special effort to get enough sleep and to sleep impacts energy levels, ability to make good decisions and to put your best have forword—- all of which can impact self-confidence and more.

Make a “Me” list…
What makes you happy? Running, grocery shopping solo, hot coffee with a friend, etc. Find a way to do at least three things on that list every week. It makes me when everyone else in my life seems to need 100% of me, too.

Eat foods you enjoy…
Instead of worrying about what you “should” or “shouldn’t” eat, choose foods you find satisfying. Deprivation, both physical from not eating enough and psychological from restricting foods or food groups, leads to overeating and usually eating more of thr foods you are trying to restrict.

Jazz up your meals…
Add some pizazz to your food by adding herbs, spices and citrus zest to your meals, snacks and smoothies. They not only instantly transform even the most mundane food, but they also dampen inflanmation and prevent free radical damage.

Know your limits…
The healthiest version of ourselves lies somewhere between giving ourselves grace while still having challenging goals. A good place to start is by being honest with yourself about what works for you and what doesn’t work.
