Are you such a busy person that it’s hard to keep up with a certain diet/exercise routine? Take some healthy living tips from a surgeon!
Who: Dr. Randal Haworth, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon
For the professional with a busy lifestyle:
1. For a quick snack, cottage cheese with pineapple is my go-to choice. It’s a healthy balance for an in-between meal.
2. As I get older, my metabolism is changing, which means I need to change-up my routine and incorporate more aerobics with weight training. I swear by my Technogym Elliptical. It’s a professional grade machine that has a built-in TV so I can watch my favorite movies while working out. It’s an incentive because I’ll watch the first half one day, then want to work out again the next day to finish it! It’s all about tricking yourself into being active even when you don’t feel like it.
3. It’s very hard to keep on a strict diet when dining out, but at home I like to stick with soups and salads. Soups are a great way to feel satisfied with just a few hundred calories. As long as I feel full, I’m a happy camper!
4. Another way I stay in shape is that I go on hikes with my dog every other day. It’s a fun way to relax, while bonding with man’s best friend.
What are some ways you trick yourself into being active?
