Add Meta MultiHealth products to you daily routine and experience how one small change can lead to good things. But don't stop there. Here are 7 more small changes you can easily make as part of your lifestyle.

1. Turn your TV or PC into a personal trainer

Turn your TV or PC into a personal trainer

Turn TV time into workout time. With easily accessible fitness channels, exercise DVDs and downloadable workout routines, you can start an exercise program right from the comfort of your living room.

2. Make friends with fiber

Make friends with fiber

Diets rich in foods containing fiber, such as some vegetables and fruits, will not only keep you regular, but are essential for an overall healthy diet. Fiber supplements like Metamucil or snacks like Meta Health Bars are also a great source of fiber for your diet.

3. Keep it moving

Keep it moving

Whenever you have a chance to take the stairs rather than the elevator, especially if it's only a flight or two. And when driving to the mall, park far from the entrance so you can walk even more.

4. Pack your lunch

Pack your lunch

Want to make healthy food choices and save money? Brown-bag-it, leaving yourself one day of the work week to eat out. Avoid unhealthy desserts in favor of fruit. But if foregoing cupcakes is too much to bear, pack one from time to time. Being overly restrictive is the quickest way to fail.

5. Say ‘so long’ to soda

Say so long to soda

Trade sugary soda for water. If water is too bland, try squeezing in a little lemon or lime. By cutting out colas, you'll not only decrease your caffeine intake, but your sugar and calorie intake too.

6. Eat breakfast

Eat breakfast

It's true: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So jumpstart your morning with healthy choices such as oatmeal topped with fresh fruit, or a scrambled egg paired with spinach. Any breakfast rich in fiber and lean protein will help keep you satisfied until lunch.

7. Make time for play

Make time to play

Instead of sitting on the sidelines while your kids or dog run around the park, join in the fun. So step away from the computer, and step outside for some fresh air. Active play not only burns calories, it's a fun way to clear your mind and recharge your spirit.
