3. Avoid candy, soda and fruit juices.
4. Get in the habit of reading labels “nutritional facts” and “ingredients”

In regard to exercise, strength, and conditioning always check with your doctor prior to starting any exercise program. Nutrition, exercise and strength building work together for optimal results. Start a daily workout program. If you cannot do it alone, make an investment in yourself. Seek advice and guidance from a professional credible trainer and/or nutritionist to get you started. They will do a true evaluation and assessment. Together you set goals, make a plan and make it happen.
Very valuable things for you to know: Your RHR(Resting Heart Rate), MHR(Maximum Heart Rate) – 220 – your age = MHR. Your THR (Target Heart Rate)
