PRINCIPLES OF HEALTH Here are 11 healthy living principles everyone should practice:

1) Eat Enough Calories
Not eating enough sends your body into starvation mode and makes it harder to lose weight.

2) Practice Moderation
Allow yourself to eat the things you really want every once and a while. Itís perfectly fine to enjoy things like ice cream, cookies or a latte with whipped cream. Just donít make it an every day occurrence.

3) Eat Breakfast
Skipping breakfast does nothing but lead to low blood sugar, moodiness and overeating later. Just remember that you aren't limited to ďtraditionalĒ breakfast foods. Focus on putting together a breakfast with complex carbs, lean protein and healthy fats. It will increase your metabolism, energy and focus.

4) Limit Processed Foods
Processed foods are almost always packed with sodium, sugar, artificial ingredients and other things your body doesnít need.

5) Drink Water
Remember that the calories in your drinks count towards your total calories for the day! Choose water most of the time and remember that if youíre thirsty, youíre already dehydrated. Take a water bottle with you everywhere to remind you to drink more often. And use additions like berries, mint or lemon to flavor your water if you donít like it plain.

6) Eat More Vegetables
Make an effort to increase your vegetable intake every day, especially the non-starchy kind. Also try to eat a variety of different vegetables and colors so that you get all the different nutrients they offer.

7) Cook More at Home
When you do the cooking, you control the ingredients. Cook extra for dinner and pack the leftovers for lunch. If you do eat out, be smart about it. Watch your portion sizes, save half for later, order extra veggies instead of starches, and ask for things like dressings and sauces on the side.

8) Buy Local and Choose Organic (When Possible and Practical)
Shop your local farmerís market. Youíll often find fruits and vegetables that were picked that very day and havenít lost their nutrients while traveling or sitting on a shelf. Know the "dirty dozen" (foods that have the most pesticide residue) and focus on buying organic versions of those fruits and vegetables.

9) Be Aware of What Youíre Eating
Learn proper portion sizes and take the time to learn about the quality of the foods youíre eating and where they come from. Pay attention to how often youíre eating and make sure youíre not doing so out of boredom.

10) Be Physically Active
Physical activity can help control your blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as your weight. It can also help improve your brain function, concentration and sleep quality.

11) Sleep Enough
Aim for eight hours every night. To help meet this goal, power down and disconnect from your electronics at least one hour before bedtime and focus on more calming activities like meditation, reading or journaling. When youíre tired, youíre more likely to eat poorly ó so make an effort to get enough sleep each night.
