  • Keep your weight in a healthy range (especially belly size) or lose weight if overweight.
  • Exercise most days – a combination of aerobic (brisk walking) and resistance activities (yoga/weights) is best. The more the better.
  • Do your carbs right – avoid/minimize refined, white carbs and sugar; choose the good carbs – fruits, veggies, beans, and whole grains instead.
  • Minimize red meat – two servings or less a week best
  • Do your fats right – minimize saturated fats (red meat, palm/coconut oil) and enjoy omega 3 fats (oily fish, hemp, chia, flax seeds and monounsaturated fats (olive oil, nuts, avocados)
  • Get restful sleep – 7-8 hours/night
  • Consume 3 meals a day and avoid snacking between meals. Do not skip breakfast.
  • Get your vitamin D level checked. Supplement as directed if low.
