Our diet has a great deal to do with how we feel. Every day there seems to be another study that points out the relationship between the amount and type of food we eat and our health. Whatever the study, the evidence clearly shows that we should increase our intake of vegetables, fruits, and some whole grains. And reduce the amount of sugar and saturated fat we eat.

Another good practice is to substantially increase your water intake. This provides the fluid base the body needs to function effectively, and is essentially when you are walking and exercising. It is recommended that you drink six to eight glasses of water a day. While other beverages, such as soft drinks or coffee, may provide you with liquid, they also increase your intake of sugar and, in the case of drinks with extra caffeine (cola, coffee, tea), they dehydrate you. Juices in moderation are good for you, but do note that they add extra calories.
