Tip 4

Eat more green carbs and less ‘beige’ carbs. Green carbs vary from beige carbs. Green carbs are healthy veg and beige is carbs derived from bread and pasta.

Your daily energy requirements and clear business focus come from denser calories food like proteins and fats.  If you consume more of these macronutrients you will not crave the sugar chocolate hit at 3pm.

Motivation to change

Going cold turkey with your health involves a strength of character most of us aren’t blessed with. Willpower wanes throughout your day. It is highest at the beginning of the day.

Some newbie runners and exercise queens have been known to sleep in their running gear so that they don’t have the option but to get up and go in the morning… early morning motivation is higher. Get up and move before your brain wakes up.

Instead, evoke the healthy habit compound effect and make small changes over a long period of time which in time create dramatic transformations.
