    Don't set unrealistic goals. Although losing weight to fit into misses' clothes is some of the women's goal, never set high goals. Say "I will lose about ten pounds or less per two weeks" instead of jumping the boat to become the replica of Barbie. Not only is it unhealthy but you will give up more easily with that thinking.

    Stay away from smoking. If you quit smoking, you will gain a few pounds but if you exercise enough those pounds will slide off quicker as long as you don't eat food when you're stressed.

Tips

  • Lean meats include beef, chicken and other lean poultry without the skin, pork, fish and certain kinds of seafood. Vegans can go for tempeh, nutritional yeast, soy, nuts, mushrooms, and beans as well as other vegan foods.
  • One of the training you can do without the weight machines or gyms is to pump up using aluminum cans or use the sword as the weight trainer. In certain countries, they won't let you have the sword unless you got proper identification for it. In some cases, they don't let you have swords due to criminal records and mental illness unless you prove that you are capable of having a sword without hurting a person or yourself.
  • Older pu-erh teas can be very expensive as they mostly come in cakes and bricks. Choose the pu-erh that is not black or moldy or taste like rotten fish.

Warnings

  • For anorexics and bulimics reading this, it is advised for you to get help as soon as you can. My friend Maria died as the result of anorexia and I don't want any more deaths to occur from it. It's okay to lose weight, but if you're doing it too much and you have skin and bones, please see the doctor.
