Simple Ways to Stay on Track this Fall





Summer is behind us and Fall is officially here. We tend to have slower days

this season, which is welcomed after a busy summer. More leisurely days can

lead to falling off track with your healthy habits, but not if you stay mindful

of the goals you've been working on all summer long.


Here are a few of my simple & favorite tweaks to stay on track during this

slower season...


Spice up your life

A few dashes of your favorite spicy toppings can do wonders for your

metabolism. Eat more hot peppers or even sprinkle red pepper flakes from

your spice rack onto your foods to help boost your metabolism almost

effortlessly. Add it to soups, stir-fry, pasta, or even your salad too.


Skip the diets

The best thing you can do is actually eat more of the right food. Fiber-rich

fruits and veggies can be gobbled down until you feel that satisfied feeling

with no guilt involved. Make smart choices when you’re eating, and you’ll be

fueling your body with the right stuff and balancing a healthy metabolism.


Power up with protein

Protein powers and maintains lean muscle. You don’t need to be a meat-eater

though to get all the protein you need. Plant-based proteins are an ideal

solution to helping your muscles maintain and burn off fat in a healthy way.


Stand more

If you have a job that requires a lot of sitting, make sure you get up and move

around at least once every hour. If possible, get a standing desk that adjusts

so you can work standing up or sitting down, or a DeskCycle that you can use

while you're sitting.


Choose organic

If money is a factor in your grocery budget, you can choose organic when it

comes to things like strawberries, apples, celery, peaches, spinach, other

greens, and potatoes. These have the highest pesticide levels. Things you peel

like bananas, avocados, or grapefruit, for example, are generally fine if

they’re non-organic.


Little things like these are all healthy and smart ways to make your body

work harder for you without you working harder, which is a great advantage

to have in the fall! Enjoy the slower season and see how your body responds.
