Studies have now shown, that sleep is one of the most important weight loss factors.

8 Hours of sleep is the recommended amount. If you think that you can get by with less, there’s a good chance that you may be selling yourself short.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking plenty of water, not only helps you stay hydrated, but also prevents unnecessary cravings.

Here is a useful tip when suffering from acid re-flux. This is from my personal experience, and from what I’ve seen in other people, after I’ve suggested it. Keep the bulk of your water drinking until after your food has properly digested. 

This helps reduce feeling bloated and lowers the risk of acid re-flux. Try it for a while, and see for yourself.

Go for a Walk Everyday
