1.    Never skip breakfast

Waking up later than expected during the mornings and skipping breakfast as a meal altogether may be seen as a splendid idea however it does a lot more damage than expected. Consumption of a well-balanced and a healthy meal first thing after you wake up is essential for energizing the body internally as well as externally.

Depriving ourselves of the necessarily needed calories during the mornings in the form of breakfast also leads us to be completely drained all day long. Skipping breakfast is also considered as being one of the leading causes of overeating during the rest of the day.

Interesting Facts about Micronutrient Deficiency

Perhaps the biggest paradox in human history—a fairly recent research has concluded that the number of overweight people in the world is approximately the same as the number of underweight people. Obesity has been declared a raging epidemic in most developed countries, especially USA. And the definition of malnutrition has changed.

Today, the malnourished also belong to the overweight/obese category.

Surprised as to how an overweight person could possibly be malnourished?

Economic inequality has made sure the poor still don’t have access to basic nutrients like carbohydrates, fats, and proteins; and the obese lack significant nutrients in their diet, despite having access to surplus amounts of inexpensive, processed food.

6 Ways To Wake Up Early Without Feeling Tired

Nothing is more annoying than waking up early in the morning feeling tired. It is very common to wake feeling like you have just finished a 40-kilometer marathon and this is regardless of the fact that you have been lying on your comfortable bed for several hours. If you wake up feeling tired, you will not have a productive day. And this is because how you feel in the morning is what determines the type of day you will have. However, there is hope because if you do the following six things you will wake up early without feeling tired.

Even if you only sleep for seven hours but you follow a program you will not wake up feeling tired.

#2 Avoid Drinking Caffeine and Alcohol at Night

How You Can Adopt Better Eating Habits

Everyone wants to eat better. Even those who already eat balanced diets search for new and innovative ways to improve upon their already-spotless routines. For the millions upon millions of people around the world who struggle with eating right, however, life can be difficult. While it might seem difficult to completely change the way that you eat, it is important to rethink how you are looking at eliminating bad habits. Instead of trying to reshape the entire way that you approach your meals, it can be much more useful to try to make small adjustments at first. Here are a few ways that you are able to make positive impacts on the way that you eat.

Keep Your Heart Happy

A great way to begin with your improved diet is by focusing on one of the more important areas of your body. Every year, millions of people die from complications related to heart disease. Paying attention to how your food consumption impacts your cardiovascular system is an important way to go around and determine a new set of simple eating habits. Having high levels of cholesterol, for example, is one of the factors that lead to heart disease. When you are looking to improve your health, it is a great idea to start working on cutting back on the cholesterol that you consume.

Unfortunately, you might find this difficult, especially when you are a big fan of a specific food item that is rich in cholesterol.
