About / History

This is just the sensible way to stay healthy. Eat good things in smaller portions. Exercise, not only because it's good for you, but because when you do, you will feel more alive the rest of the day. Not to mention that you will sleep better!

lmkb's top tips

1.Eat small portions. Don't eat when you are not really hungry.
2.Drink lots of water and limit caffeine. Avoid high sugar sodas and juices. I eat sugar free jello with blueberries and sugar free chocolate pudding on days I NEED chocolate.
3.Exercise. "Move it or lose it" is my motto. The benefits can be felt immediately.
4.Don't watch TV or read while eating. Pay attention to your food and enjoy it. If you are distracted by other things you won't even remember eating!
5.Try to get the proper amount of rest. I don't know about others but when I don't, I'm too tired to resist temptation and I usually pig out!
6.Have a LONG TERM GOAL about being healthy. Mine is to be around to enjoy family and not in a wheelchair of hospital bed!
