Health Tips

Don’t drink sugar calories. Sugary drinks are among the most fattening items you can put into your body.

 

*Eat nuts. Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious.

 

*Avoid processed junk food. They`re usually low in fiber, protein, and micronutrients but high in unhealthy ingredients like added sugar and refined grains.

 

*Don’t fear coffee. It`s high in antioxidants, and studies have linked coffee intake to longevity and a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.

 

*Eat fatty fish. Fish is a great source of high-quality protein and healthy fat.

 

*Get enough sleep. Poor sleep can drive insulin resistance, disrupt your appetite hormones, and reduce your physical and mental performance.

 

*Drink water, especially before meals. Surprisingly, it can boost the number of calories you burn.

 

*Use extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest vegetable oils.
