Tip of the day
Watering plan. New York City-based celebrity trainer Thelonious “T.J.” Johnson suggests drinking water all day, everywhere – in the morning before your daily cup of coffee, by the cooler at the office, or at dinner instead of wine. Says Johnson, who trains CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, “Dehydration will often lead you to mistake your body’s thirst for hunger.” But water will keep you hydrated, ensuring that you’ll feel those hunger pangs only when your body really needs nourishment.
