3. Drink water and green tea.
4. Eat less and move more lots more.
5. Eat mostly fresh, minimally processed foods
6. Don't eat after 7 p.m.
7. Stay connected, accountable, and active on SP.

What's the good news today? It can be as simple as you tried a new vegetable or worked out even though you were tired or you cooked at home today?
