Health & Fitness

After the new year, about 90% of the population heads to the gym to shape up. We've scoured the web to find the best tips to get you into shape.

1). Cut your fat intake- Meats, dairy, sugars, oils etc are all food sources that are fattening. Yes, your body needs them, but just not so much. Think of ways to cut these down and up your fruits and veggies.

2) EAT CARBS- Carbs are in fact GOOD for you. They fuel the muscles to enable better movement. Muscles work better during a workout and in fact help burn more calories.

3) Exercise 30-45 minutes 4 times per week. What this really means is get your heart rate up (varies with age and weight) and keep it steady for around 30-45 minutes.
