So I confess: I’ve been snooping! For the last few weeks I’ve been asking a lot of my more fit and trim friends (and even a few strangers! lol) what they do to stay in shape. Surprisingly it’s quite simple! Here are three easy habits I learned- if you’ve got more feel free to share in the comments section!
1. Eat breakfast. Eating a breakfast balanced with protein, carbohydrates and a little fat really will ensure that you don’t overeat during the rest of the day!
2. Protein, protein, protein! Lean meats like fish and chicken are great ways to get protein into your diet. When I asked trim friends what their #1 protein was it was fish!
3. Walk. I asked an older trim interviewee how she stayed so fit & she said she keeps it simple and walks everywhere! So get off your train or bus a few stops early and walk the rest of the way!
