The Team: Donít be afraid to enlist advice from qualified nutritionists and trainers. But one of your most important team members will be your support partner-someone who can encourage you and be a deterrent to failure, too (you wonít want to report to that person a four-doughnut binge).
Supplements: Once a day, take a multivitamin as an insurance policy against less-than-perfect food choices. (Itís even better if you split the pill and take half twice a day.) Through food and the multivitamin, you need to get a total of 1200 milligrams of calcium, 600 IU of vitamin D, 400 milligrams of magnesium, and 300 milligrams of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). Also, take 2 grams of distilled fish oil for omega-3 fatty acids and one half teaspoon of cinnamon daily. And make sure you get ten tablespoons of cooked tomato sauce weekly.
