My top 10 tips for 2011

Last time I wrote about how I changed negative health habits, which allowed me to lose 30 lbs, lower my cholesterol and sleep better.

One of the things that always derailed my health was catching a cold. It seems like I would just be getting consistent with my workouts, feeling really strong
and next thing I knew, I’d catch a head cold. I’d stop working out and it would be at least 2 weeks before I’d get my workouts consistent again.

I knew the key to maintaining my weight loss was to keep my immune system strong. Why was I getting sick so often? Was there a pattern to why/when I’d get sick? There was-it seemed that if I had a few nights of poor sleep followed by eating too much sugar my immune system went haywire.

TIP 2-Immune system boosters.

I realized that sugar had a huge impact on my immune system. In fact, research shows that after you eat sugar, your immune system will “shut-down” for 3-4 hours. I also discovered the majority of the immune system is located in the gut. If your gut is healthy, your immune system will be too.

Key Points:

  • Vitamin D-get tested & talk to your dr about supplements. Click here to see my favorite supplement.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Sleep at least 7 hours/night.
  • Change your toothbrush often.
