2 – Eat dinner 3 hours before you go to bed, and don’t eat again. Or if you eat dinner earlier, make the last time you eat anything 3 hours before you go to bed for maximum digestion.

3 – Limit to one cup of coffee per day! And savor it!


4- Exercise 20-30 minutes 5 days a week. You can get done intense workouts in this amount of time or just simple cardio. Don’t overdo it, but stay active! Make it fun! Do something you love!

5 – Take note of foods that cause you bloating/gas/headaches/reactions. Try to avoid these foods in your diet!
A great testing diet is The Plan by Lyn Genet where you will “test” how your body reacts to certain foods over a 21-day meal plan.

6 – Get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Sleep is important. Too little will decrease your body’s immunity and more prone to getting sick.  Not enough sleep makes you cranky and lacking in patience too!


7 – When you feel hungry, drink water. Wait 10 minutes. Are you still hungry? Are you hungry enough to eat an apple? Then you’re actually hungry. Otherwise, keep drinking water!

8 – Decrease sugar intake. Use unprocessed sugars.

9 – Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, some whole grains. Reduce dairy, reduce gluten – both cause inflammation in our bodies!


10-  Eat every 3-4 hours. If you let yourself become ravenous you will make poor decisions! Keep healthy snacks with you and water at all times!
