#1. Less time on social media (and more time planning meals)
When I explain to a nutritionist Erin DominguezMD, who is in charge of the nutrition department at this clinic, notes that one of my biggest hurdles when it comes to eating better is lack of time to cook, responds with a statement that makes me rethink everything. “Oftentimes it is not about lack of time but the management we do. In fact, think about how much time you spend on social media that you can cut back on menu planning, shopping and cooking.” In fact, studies confirm that it takes about two hours a day. He is my goal, because he adds Paula Valenteteam nutritionist, “Improvising in front of the fridge is the worst way to start a meal. Anticipation makes management easier and weekly menu planning helps us make a complete shopping list.”

In fact, in the clinic they usually measure the patient’s height before starting the series muscle stretching classes. A week later, they measured again and made sure that this height could increase by a centimeter precisely because the muscles were stretched and lengthened.

After doing a full analysis of my metabolic markers, Erin Dominguez reminds me of the importance of increasing strength training in my daily routine because “It activates the metabolism more than cardio exercises.. And this is confirmed by many studies: these exercises help to keep the basal metabolic rate high, which leads to burning more fat and more efficiently (even after training).

Athletes do it at the end of races to get more energy and strength, and this causes in the brain what the expert calls “Mood drain, so the brain tries to adapt the mood of the face. In addition, we have the power to decide and we can choose to feel better to face the day,” he adds.

“We eat what animals eat,” Irene Dominguez emphatically asserts after she recommended trying to buy eggs and milk of organic origin. “Not because of the pesticide issue associated with conventional farming, but because of the importance of animal feed to our bodies.”
#6. Make atomic changes
Lord Ramone insists on the importance of making small changes on all levels because “we are creatures of habit and we can’t pretend to change dramatically. Small changes lead to big improvements in life. They are much more positive and effective,” he explains. He calls these kinds of changes: atomic changes (Referring to the book Atomic habitsby James Clare, who challenges the belief that to change our lives we need radical changes).
