Health and Diet
Get baseline readings on your blood cholesterol. Total cholesterol should be below 200; your HDL should be 35 or more. High cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease. The good news is you can get a handle on your cholesterol. Be proactive! Achieve a healthy weight for your height, stay physically active and have your cholesterol level checked regularly.
Exercise on an empty stomach. You will burn more calories from fat if you exercise on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. And there is more to it. At the end of 24 hours, you still have to create a negative caloric deficit. The bottom line is that you should exercise when it works best for your body and your schedule. If you don’t have the energy to exercise in the morning because your stomach is empty, you are better off having a light meal and then exercising.
