You’ll need every mental and physical advantage if you want to survive. Improving your eating habits is one of the simplest ways go give yourself a boost of energy and change your overall lifestyle. The key to a successful lifestyle change is to keep it simple. Don’t dive head first into a vegan diet. I’ve seen family members set the bar too high, too fast. They try to commit to a rigorous exercise routine, cutting out red meat, sweets, etc all in the same week. It comes as no surprise to see them right where they started a month later – ready...
