10 Simple Ways to Feel Fit All Day Long
1. Start Your Day with a Natural Detox
If you want to kick things off right, start your day with some hot water or tea with lemon. The lemon is a natural detox, and it gives your metabolism a major boost. Plus it will help prevent over-eating in the morning.
2. Take Your Time
Rushing to eat while you’re on the go is a big reason people feel unsatisfied with their health by the end of the day. So start giving yourself a little time, let your food settle, and stop stuffing your face!
3. Drop the Dairy and Wheat
There’s some controversy over these two things, but there’s no denying that both wheat and dairy are highly processed. Try going wheat and dairy free for a day, and you’ll probably find yourself feeling a whole lot lighter.

4. Go Vegan for a Day
Want to step it up a notch? Try going meat-free for a day. It doesn’t mean you have to go all-out vegan, but even just reducing your meat intake can give your metabolism a bit of a break and make you feel lighter. Just make sure you replace it with natural source of protein, not carbs!
5. Eat More Fruits and Veggies
If you don’t want to give up the meat, that’s fine. Just try to get more fruits and veggies throughout the day, rather than filling up on carbs. This always makes me feel a whole lot better by the end of the day.
6. Go for an Early Run
Of all the things you can do to feel healthier and lighter, starting your day with some intense exercise is the way to do it. Hit the ground running in the morning with a jog, a bike ride, or even some jump rope. Your whole day will feel better for it.

7. Enjoy Some Afternoon Yoga
Yoga’s another fantastic way to feel healthier, fitter, and lighter. Try fitting in a yoga routine right after work. It will help you de-stress after a busy day, and that means less overeating and snacking at night.
8. Drink More Water
Ditch the soda and juice, and increase your daily water intake. Not only will you feel lighter, you’ll also boost your metabolism and burn some more calories while you’re at it – and without taking in the unwanted sugar and artificial sweeteners.
9. Don’t Touch the Salt Shaker
Sodium is the number one ingredient to make you feel bloated, and a bloated stomach is not how you want to end your day. Keep high-sodium foods to a minimum (soy sauce is a great example), and don’t add any salt to your meals throughout the day.

10. Sweat It Out
Whether it’s a morning run, a little yoga, or a full-blown weight-lifting routine, working up a good sweat will make you feel ten times lighter and healthier by day’s end. And you’ll have a real impact on your fat-burning efforts with this one!
