One of the things I’ve learned while living in Europe is that simply walking more in your day can make a huge difference on health! I’ve lost body fat, stayed lean (even with all the French Pastries), and have mental clarity during and after a beautiful brisk walk. This has had me thinking about what’s most important for my clients and people trying to lose weight and get healthy. Is it most important that they fit in an hour of a butt kicking workout just to go sit the rest of the day? Or is it more important to take the stairs throughout the day, park a little further out from the grocery store, and doing these little things throughout the day for activity? From my recent experiences, I’d vote the ladder. However both are important. We will not change our bodies with just walking a little more each day, but when we add these small additions of activity throughout our day, while maintaining a workout routine, and eating a healthy diet, we will maximize our results!

Here’s the list and how to out smart the sneaky food industry.
