The good news is, you don’t need a gym membership or a yelling personal trainer to get fit and to lose that holiday weight before beach season. All you need is willpower, motivation and a firm diet with consistent exercise. Morning Walks You should start out each day with some form of mild exercise.

A morning walk will start you off right and make sure that you are totally ready to meet your day head on.

Roasting Is the New Frying

The problem with frying food is that it’s both bad for you and delicious. If it wasn’t the single most delicious thing to cross your taste buds, people wouldn’t want to do it so much. Frying is so popular because it turns out food that is crisp, hot, and melt in your mouth fantastic. Everyone who tries to give up frying finds that they miss it, but there is another contender on the field. If you’re looking for a better meal, look no further than roasting. It just might steal the spotlight from frying. Roasting Traps More Flavor Frying is one way to get flavor into food. It’s the oil seeping in that gives fried food that amazing, melt in your mouth flavor that everyone’s been looking for. However, roasting traps the flavor that already exists in the food itself.
