  • just have a well balanced diet. and excercise. i know that sounds so repetitive, like the typical thing to say, but its so true.
    you should try pyramid.gov and track what you eat to make sure you're getting the necessary nutrients. you can log in what you eat daily and it will graph your daily fruits, veggies, proteins, etc. the tracker will let you know what you need to eat, to reach your daily amount or what you need to cut back on.
