General nutrition tips
Don't starve! Depriving your body of food sends it into fat-storage mode. The trick to burning off excess body fat is to speed up your metabolism. The best way to do that is to eat frequently, every 2-4 hours. Try to drink less calorie filled drinks, water will be your best choice! Less sugar drinks will mean less fat on your body also!
