Here are 5 ways to really step up your health and fitness game. Beware: the following tips are for the hardcore health nut.
Invest In A Standing Desk
Recent research proves that sitting in a sedentary position for 8+ hours a day is not only keeping you from losing weight, it may also be doing long term damage to your back, neck, and legs. Ditch the chair and get a desk that is the right height for you to stand at while you’re working instead. You’ll notice a difference in how you feel within a week.
Hunt And Butcher Your Own Meat
Human beings are meant to be carnivores. We are not, however, meant to eat meat that has been treated with chemicals and over processed. If you’re serious about your health and fitness, it may be time to start hunting and learning to butcher your own meat. Not only will this give you that boost in your health you’re looking for, it’s also ethical and will save you money.
Cut Out Sugar
Natural sugars (found in certain fruits and vegetables) aside, there is really no instance in which you should be eating sugar. Whether you’re looking to lose weight or just be as healthy as possible, cutting out sugar is the answer. And you may be surprised but you’ll find that once it’s gone, you won’t even miss it.
Taking 1-2 grams of activated charcoal every day is a great way to help rid your body of toxins. Its health benefits have been proven in recent years, and it doesn’t taste nearly as bad as you might imagine it would.
Wake Up (Really) Early

People who wake up early every single day are more well rested in general and more productive overall. Try it yourself for a month and see how you feel!
If you try all 5 of these tips, you can almost be guaranteed to start feeling and looking even healthier than before. You don’t have to spend a lot of money or time to make dramatic changes that will change your life for the better!
