  • If you are exercising to lose weight, stick with water. Sports drinks have a lot of sugar and are high-calorie beverages.
  • Microwaving your food doesn’t kill all the nutrients, but can actually help maintain them in your meal.
  • Exercise has so many benefits, but another great one is that it can help make you happier!
  • To satisfy your sweet tooth without pushing yourself over the calorie edge, even in the late night, eat fruit.
  • A 15 minute walk after eating can lower your blood sugar for hours, and significantly reduce your risk of diabetes.
