I love eating and it's not always healthy. I enjoy sweets and I'm not talking about fruits, either. LoL. Getting healthy WAS a struggle for me. I didn't gain too much weight while eating what I wanted but I got worried about what might become of me when I get older. Will I even see my grand kids at that point where I'm already suffering from some type of chronic disease related to poor eating choices and lack of exercise? I might be but I won't get to enjoy their company so, I decided to run and be healthy. I made that decision before I turned 30. I gave up drinking booze and smoking. I limit my sugar intake (cakes, chocolates, soda, etc.), and I tweaked recipes to include veggies. Whenever I crave for sweets, I grab an apple or a banana and munch away. I also keep myself hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water/day. Since I'm a woman, I'm guessing the tips I shared may not apply to you. At least not all so here you go. Hope it helps.
