29. Stop sabotaging. Do you have limiting behaviors? Are you sabotaging your health, fat loss and weight loss efforts? For example, if you are trying to break bad eating habits, why do you keep junk food and sugary foods in your kitchen pantry? If its there, you will eat it. You have to believe you can change and really want to change. —Mark Dilworth

30. Forget fad diets. Healthy, managed nutrition is critical for a healthy body. You need a meal plan you can maintain over time. Fad diets and starvation diets cannot be maintained. You quickly regain the weight when you begin to eat regularly. —Mark Dilworth

31. Build muscle; burn fat. Regular strength training and interval cardio sessions are a must if you want to change your body. Fat loss is more important than weight loss. When you continue to build muscle mass and burn fat, your body will change to lean and toned. This will also speed up your metabolism because your body has to work harder to maintain muscle mass. A faster metabolism helps you burn more calories during the day, during workouts and at rest. This is the main key to help keep you from regaining weight. —Mark Dilworth

32. Adopt an active lifestyle. Walk as much as possible every day. The health-related benefits are numerous when you remain active on most days. If you have a "sit-down" job, move more. When you sit, your fat-burning enzymes basically shut down. When you stand during the day, those fat-burning enzymes go to work for you. —Mark Dilworth

33. Exercise, too. You can be skinny and still be fat and unhealthy. If you just lose weight without exercise, your body has not changed to lean. And, this can lead to yo-yo weight loss and weight regain. —Mark Dilworth

34. Healthy lifestyle habits produce a healthier body. This is a no-brainer. If you get adequate nightly sleep, limit excessive stress, don't smoke, limit excessive alcohol consumption, exercise regularly and eat healthy you will have a healthier body. Practice these type of healthy habits on most days. —Mark Dilworth

35. Seek professional help. You may need professional advice in certain areas of your life. A personal trainer can help you visualize success and individualize your fat loss and nutrition program. Its hard to change your body all by yourself. You may also need help with things such as depression. And a full physical exam will show you where your health stands.
