Avoiding Sweets and Treats

Everyone needs a treat now and again to curb cravings and maintain a balanced relationship with food.

Overworking at the Gym

Exercise is essential for health, but overtraining at the gym can cause injury or burnout. Respect your body and take breaks as required. Rest between sessions and stretch before and after.

Peeling Apples and Potatoes Before Eating

Many people peel fruits and vegetables before eating, but this might remove nutrients. Apple and potato skins provide essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Drinking Coffee Daily

Coffee is most people's morning drink, however it can have adverse effects. Drinking too much coffee can cause restlessness, sleeplessness, and stomach issues. 

Not Eating Before Workout

Eat a piece of fruit, a handful of almonds, or porridge with almond milk one hour before the gym. This diet will fuel your workout and yield results.

Prefer Turkey Bacon over Regular

Turkey bacon isn't inherently healthier than ordinary bacon, despite popular belief. Thanksgiving bacon contains less calories and fat than ordinary bacon but fewer nutrients.
