Small changes in eating choices can have big impact


I drink water constantly during the day, well above the cliché of six to eight glasses. I don’t believe this recommendation is nearly enough water.

Guilty pleasure: a few squares of dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa or above).

Nutritional downfall: diet soda. I dislike the taste of coffee, and use this as my caffeine source. I am doing my best to minimize my intake here.

Cheat meal: Sunday evening. I have one high carb meal per week to prevent my metabolism from slowing and to keep the production of the fat burning hormone, leptin from slowing.
