For getting on track to a fitter you.
Become Physically Active
Exercise is and physical activity are two different things. It's easier to stay on an exercise regimen when
you are already physically active. Think of things apart from exercise that you can do from day to day
(like recreational activities) that keep you moving, and your blood circulating. Become a physically active
person, and stretch daily so that you're always ready for an impromptu workout.
Avoid sugary snacks, junk food, and fast food. Eat small well balanced meals that include a lean
protein source, a starch, and at least one vegetable. If you find eating better difficult to mantain, then
increase your physical activity. The more you exercise, the more you will naturally crave healthier
options. Eat less on days when your activity levels are minimal, and never eat right before going to bed.

and weight / muscle training is the most effective approach.
There is no one diet that will solve your fat loss or better health goals. Only a proper mix of exercise
in conjunction with a balanced diet consisting of lean protein, vegetables, and complex
carbohydrates will make you look and feel closer to your ideal. That's the better way.
Change Who You Are
Better physical fitness health starts with a decision. You have to decide that the effort is worth the
reward, knowing full well that it will require hard work. Exercise shouldn't be an activity you do, but rather
part of who you are. Become a physically active person who wants to exercise all of the time, because
will power isn't enough. If you don't like to exercise, you won't achieve the results you desire.
