1. Drink Water, Lots of it. You need to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces per day to stay hydrated.
2. Exercise: 5 to 6 days per week at least 30 minutes a day. Do at least 20 to 30 minutes of Cardio Exercise with each exercise session. A couple days a week include strength training.
3. I recommend to everyone that can, to plant a garden. It is so much better for you to have fresh vegetables on hand. We try to keep something in our gardens all year.
4. I shop for most of my staples and non-perishables on Amazon with Prime Pantry I find that I save time and money. I can fill a Prime Pantry Box usually under $100. Best of all, I don’t have to deal with going to several different stores to get what I need.
