2. Begin again a fitness regiment - don't do too much too soon. Start power walking 15 minutes at a time
once a day - every other day add 2 minutes until you reach 25 minutes. Start slow to be successful. We find success is building lifestyle habits that are attainable. Weightloss tip #1 - Weight yourself daily - at the same time each day. Chart and evaluate. Look for patterns. Eat mindfully!
3. Healthy lifestyles require healthy habits. Prepare to be successful by starting with planning your foods and snacks. Think Nuts, Seeds, Vegetables and Fruit for snacks. Prepack your snacks to grab and go. Grazing is helpful for blood sugar stability.
4. Dehydration is a concern at all times of the year. Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink. Water is best, consider reduction of sugary drinks and diet drinks that rob your body of nutrients. Make drinking water a habit that you are willing to work on.
As always, if you have any questions about diet, exercise, skeletal health, we are available for consultations. Be Well,

Considerations for Health
"It is the body that is the hero, not science, not antibiotics ... not machines or new devices ... The task of the physician today is what it has always been, to help the body do what it has learned so well to do on its own during its unending struggle for survival - to heal itself."
"It is the body, not the medicine that is the hero."
Ronald J. Glasser, M.D. Former Assistant Professor of Pediatrics University of Minnesota
