#MOVEMBER HEALTH TIP 1: health numbers.

Image
No matter your age, one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy is to know and track your key health numbers. Tracking these and keeping them in the healthy range will lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and many types of cancer.   The health numbers you should watch:  - Body Mass Index / Weight  - Waist line  - Blood pressure  - HDL Cholesterol (healthy cholesterol)  - LDL Cholesterol (unhealthy cholesterol)  - Blood Glucose (sugar)

Eating the right amount is as important as eating healthy food.
Goals: When it comes to be healthy and in optimal physical form we have to set goals. To set goals first you need to know where you are standing at, you have to decide if you want to lose weight, gain weight, or simply maintain your actual shape. Learning to count calories is super important to help you have faster and concrete results. I have been keeping track of my caloric intake for about 3 weeks now and the change is incredible.

Never heard this before? Learn it.
We all have different goals when it comes to fitness. Some of us just want to be healthy, some others care more about the aesthetics of a sculpted body. I always considered myself an average guy swimming between the two, and competing with my cousin Kendy (always beat me) in Dominican Republic.
I never really understood how come I would eat "healthy and balanced" and saw very little physical change in my overall body fat. Well, after years educating myself in various topics I became in an unplanned way super interested in learning more than what I found in magazines or just with my peers around. I went into books! Awesome idea! I have learned so much, that I can believe the progress I've done one week into a new exercise and nutrition plan, made specifically for me... certainly abs are not made at the gym! I have lost 2 pounds in 5 days! damn, and my abs are showing and are tighter, and my energy levels are hyped... Stay tuned for part 2…
