Starting a diet, without a doubt offers many great benefits. Dieting helps to tone your body, so that you look more attractive and along with exercise gets you in the best shape you can be in, So, if you want the look of a lean, mean, healthy machine, shedding those extra pounds and paying attention to your caloric intake is critical.

It’s just a fact, with a healthy diet your body just functions better. Not to mention that perfect physique you’re looking for. And might I just add that, usually if you look better, you feel better too!
FIND A PLACE TO WORKOUT AND WHY?
Having a good workout not only improves your looks but it also helps you to sleep better. No matter your work schedule, you can always find the time to get in some good exercise.
Exercise improves your attitude and thus your creativity and also your memory. Want to get rid that fatigue feeling, go and lace up your running shoes and take them for a short run.
Another good reason to workout is that you’ll experience fewer sick days on your job. It appears that exercise and frequent workouts can help fight the bacteria that causes colds and the flue.
Sorry Ladies, but Mother Nature has made a visit, and you’re dealing with the discomfort and pain of seeing that time of month again. If you want to lessen the effect of that time, exercising will certainly come to your rescue. So when the pain kicks in, you can kick it back with natural pain relief released when you workout.
Without getting technical explaining all the “feel good things” that are released when we work out, the bottom line is, it just makes you feel like a million bucks!
SELF BREAST EXAM
This so very important to do if you’re have a high risk profile. Breast examination is simple to do and not much time is required performing the procedure. Not doing this easy procedure because you’re afraid, won’t make the risk go away. If any problems are discovered early, then usually your chances of a cure are increased.
In addition to a self-examination, by all means schedule a mammogram test annually, from thirty years old and beyond.
WATCH THE CALORIES
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure, that if your caloric intake is higher than the calories you burn, you are definitely going to start gaining a little weight.
I want to rule out that your caloric intake does depends on someone else caloric intake or that a certain number is normal for a person you size, build or age.
To just say that you should be taking in a certain amount of calories a day from a chart somewhere just doesn’t make sense, go and get someone with the knowledge to knows what they’re doing to figure what right for you.
To get an accurate rate of how you burn calories, you need to get metabolic calculator to figure it out.
Be extremely cautious because if your intake rate is too low, problems can arise such as your body looking for sources of calories to keep your organs functioning properly, this will often make you feel sluggish and irate.
PAMPER YOUR FEET
Why pamper your feet you might ask, well, the feet are the foundation of the body and if the foundation fails, similar to any structure the whole thing will crumble.
There’s no need for me to say that neglected feet can cause some serious conditions. Let’s just mention a few ailments attributed to ignored feet.
What about fungus infections, cracked heels, calluses, corns and the list goes on. Ladies please wear the proper footwear, none of those ill-fitting tight shoes that murder your feet all day long, please give them a break!
Give the feet good care by washing them, exercising them, clean off the dead skin and apply a good moisturizing lotion to them. Almost every action done through the day involves the feet. Where would, you be without them.
CHECK YOUR POSTURE
Having a great posture will benefit you tremendously, stand straight and don’t sump is an expression that I’ve heard most of my life.
The older women around the age of my Grandma would always say, walk straight, sit straight and not to slouch in your chair.
That was some real good advice coming from them back in those days. Because, not walking straight and slouching in your chair helped to prevent rounding of the spine.
SKIP THOSE SENSELESS MEALS
Your know the kinds of meals we’re talking about here right? Stop, visiting all those take out places, like McDonalds and a few others that shall remain nameless.
They are trying to cater to the public now with healthier meals but you still have to have your radar on so you can detect the bad from the good cuisine.
You don’t have to
You don’t have to completely cut out the potato chips and other snack foods and sweets but use some discretion when indulging in such foods.
SEX IS WONDERFUL

Also, ladies, sex has been known to relieve some cramps associated with your cycle and even gives you a lighter flow.
