“4 Easy Tips to Have 25% More Energy and Get Healthier Now!”

by Frederic Patenaude

Yes, you can increase your energy levels by at least 25% and reach a higher level of health with very simple diet and lifestyle changes.

I'm going to outline some of my best tips that anybody can apply to see dramatic results fast. I'm going to give tips for beginners as well as more experienced

The One Food You Must Avoid

First things first, there are certain foods we eat that literally drain away our health, our energy, or both. If you want to make positive steps towards eating a healthy diet, you have to start by avoiding them first.

I won't go into the obvious junk foods everybody knows to be unhealthy. Instead, I'll talk about probably one of the unhealthiest foods on the supermarket shelves, one that's still considered healthy.

I'm talking about *cheese*. More specifically, ripened cheese (parmesan, cheddar, camembert, etc.).

In addition to being high in fat, cheese also contain certain substances that make it addictive (see the book “The Food Seduction”).

Cheese is also one of the most mucus-forming foods there is, and most people who drop it from their diet notice immediate improvements in their health.

My experience leads me to believe that if there's one thing everybody should eliminate from her or her diet, it's cheese.

Drop the Oil

Excessive fat consumption is related to a wide range of health problems, not just “getting fat.” Fat consumption affects how your body processes sugar, and an excessive fat consumption leads to blood sugar imbalances, such as hypoglycemia, diabetes, and even candida.

In light of all of this, there's really no reason anyone should consume any type of oil on a regular basis. This includes olive oil, flax seed oil, hemp seed oil, and any kind of “healthy” oil you can imagine.

There's no reason because you can get all the fat and omega-3 you can possibly need by consuming *whole* foods, such as avocados, nuts and seeds.

A tablespoon of oil contains about 150 calories. Add a few of those to your salads and you've already consumed a very high-fat meal!

So my recommendation is to *drop the oil*. Just get rid of it. Don't buy it anymore. It's okay to have a bit of olive oil occasionally when you go out and have a salad, for example, but in your home, use healthy fats from whole foods, not refined fats from oils.

The Magic of Exercise

One of the best ways to help your body regulate blood sugar and appetite *naturally* is to create a natural *demand* for food.

This means that regular exercise is an essential part of any nutrition program. Just diet alone cannot help your body process the foods you're eating if there's no demand for it.

One of the best exercises you can start right now is walking. I'm all for going to the gym and getting in shape, but chances are that you might just need to start walking more.

I suggest you start with 15 minutes a day, and then increase to 30 minutes, until you can do 30 to 60 minutes every day. Try to maintain a pace that is comfortable, yet a little challenging.

If you get in the habit of walking or exercising in the morning before breakfast, you'll notice that you'll be drawn to eating the right foods and you'll experience less cravings and less energy swings during the day.

Green Smoothies and the Green Cleanse

Without a doubt, my best all-around tip for improving your health, needing less sleep, overcoming deficiencies, reaching your ideal shape, and overcoming cravings, is the regular consumption of green smoothies.

If you'd like to refer to my previous articles about green smoothies, what they are, and how to make them, here are 2 links:

But here's where I throw in a little extra. If you go for a week on just green smoothies (and fruit), you won't believe how great you'll feel at the end of that week.

And best of all, it's not as hard as it seems, as long as you have the proper support and motivation.

In the “Green for Life Program”, we'll take you through a “Green Cleanse” where you'll experience the astounding health benefits of green smoothies.

You can do it on your own, but chances are that you might either quiet, or have questions that need clarifications, so that's why I decided to organize that “Green Cleanse.”

At the end of that week, I'll guarantee that your energy levels will be at least 25% higher, and that you'll have experienced huge improvements in your health.
