Health Tips To Live By

#1 – Cut processed carbohydrates & eliminate added sugar from your diet

If you want to lose belly fat, these are the first foods that need to go. And you’ll quickly find that you have more energy as well.
Personally, I’ve found cutting breakfast cereals from my diet was a big factor. If you find breakfast cereals leave you hungry and tired, then remove them and replace with protein (eggs or a shake) and vegetables or fruit. My favorite energy breakfast is 3 scrambled eggs with a side of spinach.
Also, skip the bread at lunch. When you eat bread you’ll always be ready for a big nap at 2pm in your desk chair. That’s notta too good, especially if you operate heavy machinery.
#2 – “Drip” Your Caffeine
Confidential research by the US Army found that providing small doses of caffeine over the day leads to better, sustained energy levels compared to giving a big dose of caffeine all at once.
What does this mean for you?
Avoid the caffeine bombs in those soft drink energy cans. Switch to enjoying a few cups of Green Tea (about 80mg caffeine per serving). You can also switch to espresso. I have nothing against coffee, but you should cap your caffeine intake around 200mg per day.
There will be no crash and burn on the “caffeine drip” plan.
#3 – Go to bed and get up at the same time everyday, even on weekends.
I don’t know how many times I read this piece of advice, ignored it, and wondered why I struggled to get back on track every Monday.
When I finally tried it, it was magic. This has been the BIGGEST boost to my all day energy levels. Follow this rule for 2 weeks and you’ll be amazed at how much more mental and physical energy you have all day long.
#4 – Exercise (& you should probably do it in the AM)
Short- burst exercise sessions  not only help you lose belly fat, but will make you more alert all day long.
There’s no “fat burning magic” to exercise done first thing in the morning, but research suggests you’ll have an easier time sticking to it.
Morning workouts avoid late afternoon excuses, and since consistency is key, the morning seems to be the best time for most of us.
#5 – Eat more whole, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, & raw nuts
First of all, this means less room for processed carbohydrates and sugar.
Second, research shows subjects on a low-fat diet that ate more fruits and vegetables lost more fat than another group on only the low-fat diet. (Amer. J. Clin. Nutr. 85: 1465-1477, 2007.)
#6 – Lose weight & control over your blood sugar
Overweight folks suffer from sleep apnea (meaning they wake up more in the middle of the night), high blood pressure, and high blood sugar, and none of these are good for your energy levels.
So lose belly fat fast with the Turbulence Training program and you’ll start sleeping like a baby, and living life to the fullest.
#7 – Drink more water
When I don’t get enough water, I suffer. And my clients, especially the ones who travel a lot, always have more energy when they drink more water. Add an extra cup of water to breakfast, break, and lunch, and you’ll notice a big burst of all-day energy.
