Hydration. If there was any one thing you should always have at the front of your mind, is “when was the last time I drank some water”. It’s pretty hard to over-hydrate especially if you are an active person, but even more important is the fact that without proper hydration our hormones don’t function properly.
Your goal should be about 8 cups of water a day, but what about if you exercise? Well you should add at least 3-4 cups of water for every hour you exercise.

Focus on a healthy breakfast. There should be no excuses here, even if you are really short on time. You should be able to make some healthy oatmeal and boil an egg or two within 4-5 minutes.

Why is breakfast so important? Think about it this way. If you start out your day with a healthy meal you are much more likely to continue your efforts throughout the day in comparison to starting it out with a muffin and butter which is full of calories and fat. If you look for it and read the labels you can find some healthy variations of oatmeal and even high fiber cereals that don’t have sugar as the first or second ingredient.

High Intensity Interval Training (aka HIIT). You will never see such incredible results in fat loss until you have tried HIIT, not only does it decrease the amount of time you spend on your cardio, but it also leaves your body as a thermogenic fat burning furnace for hours after wards. Try and aim for 2 HIIT sessions a week and make sure to give yourself at least a days rest from intense cardio after this session so your body can recover.
