Let summer change your life ... and your weight

Filed under: ,

On Prevention Magazine's website, I was drawn to this article by Lia Huber, which lists a number of healthy tips that she learned while spending the summer in Greece. I too spent a summer in Greece, but unlike Lia, my summer was characterized by too many nights spent in the tourist party spots followed by late-night snacks of Gyros wraps ( complete with tonnes on Tzatziki and even a few french fries thrown in for flavour), lots of beer, sleeping until noon and very little activity during what was left of the day. But hey. Those were my university days. And her tips are much more conducive to a healthy lifestyle.

Here are some of her suggestions:
  • Eat fresh
  • Switch to Olive Oil
  • Eat your Veggies
  • Make meals time about more than just food -- enjoy the company of friends and family
  • Slow down
  • Don't just feed your body -- feed your soul, too.
I think these are great suggestions, for the summer and for life. What about you?
