I must get my eating under control. It’s tough to get my sleep and exercise right while I’m lethargic from eating sugar, fat and junk all day.

On my brain: a healthy food guide (about to be on my fridge), and a recent reading.

The healthy food guide is from Women’s Health magazine. “The 12 Best Foods for Your Abs: A smart eater’s cheat sheet for life” needs to make it on your fridge, too. (Pictured, left.)

And I found some great nutrition reminders in, “A Hunger-Free Way to Flatten Your Belly,” in the March issue of Health Magazine.

This article features straight-forward health advice (“Every day, aim to get 30 minutes of exercise, spend no more than six hours sitting down, and keep your calorie count in the 1,500 to 2,000 range”), plus, some simple nutrition advice I had sort of forgotten:

  • Eat fiber and whole grains like oatmeal and apples
  • Get your low-fat dairy like in milk and yogurt
  • Prioritize plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables and nuts
  • Add good fats like from almond butter, avocado, and safflower oil

And the big “Duh” at the end of the article:

  • Cut out the alcohol
  • Skip the other fats
  • De-stress your life
  • Get your cardio
  • Strength train

My physical revitalization has begun. How’s your going?
