What we are after here are the Omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish that are widely considered to be the best “good” fat. Tuna, salmon, halibut, as well as walnuts and flaxseeds are great sources of this super fat and can all help reduce your bad cholesterol. It is recommended that you get 1.5 to 3 grams of omega-3 per day for best results. If these foods don’t please your palate, try an Omega-3 supplement.

Take time to build friendships. Try to arrive to class a few minutes before it begins if you want to get to know people. This allows you to help guide those who do not know whether or not they have arrived at the right place. This is also an easy way to break the ice and develop friendships.

How will achieving this goal change life for the better?

Research among 9 to 12 year olds has shown that a breakfast with a low glycemic index (low GI) — that is, wholegrain bread — combined with protein keeps them satisfied much longer.

When you feel positive you feel light and joyful and aren’t depressed. You bounce out of bed in the morning and into the shower to get ready for a great day. You sing along with the radio while you have a healthy breakfast and feel that life is good. You are full of expectations for the wonderful day you are going to have.

You might start off your day with an apple, some fat-free milk, and a whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter. Smoothies are also good choices.
