MY PERSONAL BEST
Our editor reminds us that knowing your food is knowing yourself.

South Beach Diet, Mediterranean Diet, the Latin Diet… So many diets these days, but what’s your diet?
Something that I learned in my professional practice was that each person has his or her own habits, tastes and traditions. There’s nothing that you can recommend to improve their diets if you don’t create a program called “The Mr./Mrs. [your name here] Diet.” In other words, the recipe must have your name attached to it in order for the diet to work.
That’s why we’ve themed the March/April 2009 issue of SOBeFiT Magazine to the food and diet industry of South Florida: an effort to learn more about making the healthiest food choices from our different cuisines, for our body types, for our gender and for our particular fitness goals.

MY ADVICE FOR WEIGHT CONTROL:
This is something I learned during the time I was running my wellness center, and I can say it helped countless people regardless of their individual conditions and habits. Keep three things in mind:
Don’t waste your calories in drinks. Eating an apple will always be more satisfying than drinking apple juice.
Have a soup (broth based) or a salad (filled with tons of veggies, skip the creamy dressing, croutons and bacon bits) as a starter for every lunch and/or dinner.
Move around. It doesn’t matter if it’s formal exercise or regular everyday activities, move as much as you can throughout the day.
