1 DAILY EXERCISE

Successful maintainers almost always incorporate exercise into their daily lifestyle. No need to run marathons or compete in Mr. Olympia. Walking briskly for an hour, plus some calisthenics, really does the trick.

2 EAT LESS . . .

No, it's not sexy, but you simply have to eat less FOREVER! That's the truth. No exercise can compensate if you return to poor eating or overeating habits.

3 . . . AND NO JUNK

Eliminate or limit consumption of all commercial food products, including restaurant meals.

4 DRINK WATER

Make water your primary beverage. Ditch all commercial juices, drinks and sodas; restrict or eliminate all alcohol.

5 EAT MORE OF THIS

Vegetables and fruits, which are nature's candy.
