Start by changing your diet to include healthier food choices – less red meat and fried foods, and more fish and chicken whether grilled or baked. Eat more vegetables and fruit and drink more water. Do what you enjoy. If it’s dancing – go dancing. Go for a walk in the park. If you need motivation, hire a trainer. Remember, it’s a journey, not a destination.”
