To start shedding those unwanted pounds, Peter suggests the following simple lifestyle changes:
- Stop eating takeout. Fast food is loaded with fat, calories, salt and preservatives that your body doesn't need, Peter says. Cut down on takeout and start preparing meals with fresh ingredients at home.
- Stop drinking soda. Soda is full of sugar that can add inches to your waistline. Organize your day so there's always water handy instead of sugary beverages, Peter says.
- Cut back on TV. Replace some of the time you spend watching television with exercise such as walking.
- Tackle the clutter in your kitchen. Create a clean, welcoming environment to prepare your meals, Peter says.
