When was the last time you looked in the mirror & said, “Wow! What a MIRACLE!” Your body truly is the most complex, miraculous creation & it was gifted to you! Your body is the ONLY vehicle you will be given to fulfill your unique purpose & destiny & it is your responsibility to care for it. Unfortunately, it was not accompanied by an owner’s manual. The following tips offer guidance on how you can maintain & enjoy your gift for many years to come.

  1. BAD is Good! Be Active Daily. Elevate your heart rate for at least 30 minutes/day, 3 x/week. Incorporating short activity breaks into your day adds up & helps you feel refreshed. Taking 3 – 10 minute walks/day = 30 minutes. Get a pedometer & challenge yourself or a friend to take more steps. Know your target heart rate and strive to get into your “zone” for optimal cardiovascular & weight release benefit.
  2. Eat a rainbow! Fill up on fruits & vegetables for fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants & cellular nutrition. When your body is nourished-not just fed-it s better able to function for optimal health, energy & weight release.

  3. Eat 4-6 mini-meals! Consuming small, frequent meals helps to optimize your metabolism, provide sustained energy & release fat- as long as you are eating less overall calories than your body requires for maintenance.. Incorporate small amounts of protein & healthy fat in most meals & low-glycemic, high fiber carbohydrates for blood sugar balance, satiety, sustained energy & weight management.
  4. Dump the junk! Clean out the sludge that slows down your metabolism & affects every system in your body. Include detoxifying foods in your diet, such as apples, cruciferous vegetables, green tea, watercress, dandelion greens, cilantro, artichokes, garlic, citrus peels & pomegranate. Avoid exposure to chemicals by using natural skin care & cleaning products. Enjoy the detoxifying benefits or a FAR Infrared sauna.
  5. Drink pure water! Consider distilled or reverse osmosis water processed by the patented iH2O technology which changes the molecular structure of water to improve hydration, cleanse toxins & flush fat. Also, consume green tea which has added benefits of antioxidants, stress reduction, energy & metabolic stimulation. For information on iH2O water systems visit www.GIAWellness.com/wellfit
