2. Get a food and exercise journal

3. Have freshly cut fruits instead of juices
Though freshly squeezed juices packed as much of goodies as the freshly cut fruits, they are often packed with more calories. This is because, to make one glass of say, apple juice, it would require about 3 apples. Hence unconsciously, you would be consuming 3 times as much calorie than you would if you eat the apple in its solid form. Also, many pre-packed fruit juices in the supermarket are made from concentrates and also loaded with extra sugar. Hence, eating freshly cut fruits is always the best choice.
4. Do not stick to one type of food
Eat a variety of healthy food. Do not merely stick to a certain diet (eg fruits diet). Just solely eating fruits will deprive you of other essential nutrients such as proteins. Eating a wide range of food from whole grains to lean meats to fruits and vegetables would protect you from any deficiencies and benefits your health greatly.
5. Do quick exercises during TV commercials
Make use of these time wasters and do short bursts of exercises! Simply do some sit ups (abs) and dips (triceps) while waiting for your program to come on! Do you know that by doing so you can in fact burn up to 40% more calories than if you just rest and watch TV?
