Key Tips to Make Your Life Healthier

In the age of the obesity epidemic, thousands of new diet fads coupled with an overload of health and fitness information, there are really only a few key tips you need to keep in mind to stay healthy and fit. 

 If you Google “best health tips” you will get over 1.3 million results. How is anyone supposed to sort through 1.3 million results? Even if you do, how will you know which tips are true?

I’ve refined these tips down to only the best of the best.  The tips below are not only true; they are timeless, meaning they will be true for generations.  So if you know nothing about fitness or are an expert trainer, keep these tips in mind to be in top shape.

1. You Are What You Eat – The next time you want to put yourself in a bad mood, go grocery shopping and actually look at the nutrition labels, ingredients and packaging claims on the food that you normally buy.

Products are often labeled “natural,” yet have high-fructose corn syrup in them. Natural products can technically have pesticides in them that are not even mentioned on a nutrition label.  This is actually allowed according to the FDA.

2. Stay Hydrated – This is one tip I can’t stress enough.  Many experts recommend drinking eight glasses of water a day.  Although healthy, this is a general guideline that has simply been passed down from generation to generation without any real scientific merit.  The proper consumption of water aids in digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, maintenance of body temperature and more.

When you feel your mouth is a bit dry, it means your body has been craving water for about 20 minutes. To answer the question all you beer lovers are asking now, yes beer is mostly water but it also contains alcohol, which causes dehydration.

A major — yet hardly ever discussed — advantage to water is the positive effect it can have on dieters.  Those on a diet should be extra vigilant about drinking water. Doing this will reduce your urge to drink calories from other liquids, and it is much easier to drink calories than eat them.  In addition to these benefits, water is also great for energizing muscles, flushing toxins out of your body and keeping your skin looking healthy…
