Doing the D.E.W. with Dathon

Staying Healthy Is Crucial to Living Your Best Life.
“My mom would always tell my sister and me, “Whatever you do, never stop exercising, drinking water and eating right”. It is doing the D.E.W. – diet, exercise, and water.
Diet is not eating a certain regime of food, but the quantity and the time you eat it. You can eat just about whatever you want in moderation and timing. Small portions, like my grandfather would say, “just a serving spoonful only” of food quantity and be sure to schedule your food intake before 6:30pm. This timeframe helps your body to be able digest what you have eaten before bedtime.
Exercise is important to your physical, mental and spiritual being. With my exercise, it is not so much the quantity of reps, but the consistency. Being consistent with whatever the exercise routine, is the key. Whether it is running, walking, playing basketball, or pushing the vacuum cleaner, it is imperative to do it 4 to 5 times a week. Like my Uncle says, “you owe yourself at least 1 hour and a half of the 24 hours a day to keep your physical body strong.”
Water is the well of life. Our bodies are approximately ¾ water weight and our intake o0f water should be at least ½ your body weight in ounces. Example: if you are 100lbs.., your intake of water per day should be at least 50 ounces.
