  1. Get active – the easiest way to start is to start walking, whether around your neighborhood, or on a treadmill in your house. Do it once a day. Your body was built to be active.
  2. Cut your sugar intake – we now know that sugar is the number one poison when it comes to disease, obesity, and overall degradation of health. It actually makes you age faster. Cut out as much as you can and get educated on alternatives to sugar – two of our favorite include Lakanto Monkfruit and Monkfruit Erythritol blend More on sugar substitutes coming soon.
  3. Cut your carbohydrates intake – carbs turn to sugar in your body, and your body processes it like sugar. Too much of this over long periods of time leads to diabetes and other unnecessary diseases.
  4. Eat healthy fats – which include fats from grass-fed beef, and other humanely-raised meats. Eggs. Cream, but not milk. Coconut oil, olive oil and bacon grease. You read that right, bacon is good for you.
