Just posting here in the Health forums to sort of toot my own horn...In the past year or two I have made a lot of healthy changes to my diet and lifestyle, and I feel better than ever, in spite of being in my mid-thirties...here's what I've done for myself: 1. Quit smoking (the hardest). 2. Quit drinking so often and so much (used to drink beer daily, now it's basically wine with dinner occasionally). 3. Quit drinking sodas (empty calories, who needs it?) 4. Quit eating fast food (and became a damn good cook in the process *toot*) 5. Quit red meat and pork (only eat poultry and fish in limited quantities). 6. I drink green tea daily (research the stuff, it's amazing). I don't actually have a 'diet' per se, I just think twice about what I put into my body, and what it will do for/to me. I've increased my grains, veggies and gone more natural with everything, and I stay away from extremely processed foods. And I drink plenty of water. I know I'm probably preaching to the choir by posting here in Health Forums, but if anyone ever doubts that making these kinds of changes will help you feel better, I am living, smiling, jumping, running proof that it works wonders!
