61 Fitness And Diet Rules For A Lean, Stellar Physique

Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, berries

21. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries…oh my.

All three are extremely high in vitamins C and K (blood clotting), as well as antioxidants. They’ll help clear up any skin conditions and acne, fight cancer and disease, and add all of the other miraculous benefits that antioxidants have to offer.

22. Don’t smoke cigarettes. Keep alcohol to 2 drinks or less.

Having 2 drinks or less can help lower your cholesterol levels, any more than that and you’re in a world of trouble. Besides making you fat, drinking alcohol excessively can cause liver and kidney damage, osteoporosis and arthritis, heart disease, and blood sugar imbalances.

23. Drink coffee.

Coffee’s loaded with antioxidants, increases mental energy and focus, boosts physical power, and converts fat into fuel. One of the largest studies ever on the subject — over 400,000 people — recently found that drinking up to 6 cups of coffee/day reduces the risk of death.1

24. Drink water all day long.

Besides being just a little bit important for virtually every single bodily function, drinking water can also help increase your metabolism and reduce hunger. A dieter’s dream — negative calories and decreased hunger.

25. Eat oatmeal.

Oatmeal’s loaded with fiber that can help lower LDL (bad cholesterol), promote heart health, slow digestion, and help keep you full for a ridiculously long time. Oatmeal also has a ton of phytochemicals, which fight cancer.

26. …not cereal.

For the most part all you’re eating is nutrionally devoid mess that consists of sugar, refined carbs, and artificial colors/flavors. Sometimes a toy, too.

27. Eat flax seeds.

They have the highest omega-3 content of any food, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and decrease just about every risk factor associated with heart disease.

27. Eat beans.

The quadruple threat: fiber + antioxidants + protein + gas.

28. Eat protein before bed.

It’ll help keep your metabolism up, which burns calories. It’s also been shown to boost overnight protein syntheis by 22 percent.2

29. …but don’t eat anything other than protein <2 hours before bed.

When you go to sleep your metabolism slows. Any fat or carbs left in your stomach when you fall asleep will turn into body fat.

30. Take the stairs.

You burn about 4 calories per flight of stairs. That’s better than the big, fat 0 that you burn taking the elevator.
