These 7 habits separate the fit from the flabby

Many people ask me how to quickly and easily get fit. While I know they are hoping for a simple answer, the reality is that getting and staying fit is a lifestyle, not a quick fix.


So what do fit people do in their “healthy lifestyle”? Take a peek with the following 7 Habits of Highly Fit People…


Fit Habit #1: They Don’t Buy Junk


Fit people know that if they keep junk food in the house they will eat it sooner or later. So they don’t buy any. Even buying junk food for your kids or spouse is not advised since 1) you’ll likely eat some of it eventually, and 2) your loved ones shouldn’t be eating that junk either. It’s called junk for a reason.


Rid your home of chips, cookies, candy, baked goods, pre-packaged snacks and anything else that belongs in a vending machine. Replace the above with fresh fruit, veggies, nuts and other healthy whole foods snacks. {Read: 4 Easy Steps To Quit Eating Junk Food }

Healthy Habits To Lose Weight


Fit people make exercise a priority. Along with keeping a job, paying the bills and going to the doctor, exercise is an important part of their lives. What I’ve found is that fit people put exercise before leisure time. Sure, fit people enjoy leisure, but it is scheduled around their workout time.


Treat exercise time with the same importance that you would a business meeting or trip to the dentist.


Fit Habit #3: They Stop When Full


Fit people stop eating when they feel full. Sound simple? It is, but how many times have you stuffed yourself simply to clear your plate? Or how many times have you eaten another piece of cake despite being stuffed?


The next time you feel full, take it as a sign to stop eating. Yes, even if your plate isn’t empty.
