Tips

Keep a training or workout journal. Write down what types of exercises you're doing, how many reps at what weight, what time of day you workout, how you felt about the workout, and anything else you can think of. This will allow you to see what types of exercises work for you, as well as your progress.

Consuming a large amount of salt can increase your blood pressure. To avoid this try cooking with other spices to add flavor to your food. This will reduce your craving for salt.

Have a sweet tooth, but trying to stick to that diet? Try freezing grapes; they taste even sweeter when frozen, and are a great, healthy snack.

Just because something is "low-fat" doesn't mean it's "low-calorie". Burning more calories than you take in is what causes weight loss, so double check the label.

So you know water is the best choice for hydration, but you don't like the taste of it... try adding slices of lemon, lime, orange, strawberries, cucumber, fresh mint, or even cubes of watermelon, cantaloupe, of honeydew to your water bottle for a touch of flavor.

Keep meaning to pack lunch rather than eating out but never seem to have the time? Next time you cook dinner, cook double the portions and take the leftovers.

Skipping is not only an efficient cardio exercise, but it also develops coordination, balance and agility.

Want a workout that's just as effective but can be done in less time? Combine multiple exercises into one. For example, do a reverse lunge with a bicep curl, or a squat with an overhead shoulder press.

Replace your morning glass of juice with a piece of fruit and glass of water instead. Fruit contains more fiber than the juice, and it will leave you feeling more full in fewer calories.
