10 Fit Rules to Live By

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to give myself a break and ask FitSugar readers: what's the best health or fitness advice you've ever heard? As always, I appreciated the thoughtful, thought-provoking, and often amusing responses; it's always great to remind ourselves why and how to live healthy. Here are my 10 favorite pieces of health and fitness advice from Fit readers:

  • No one has ever regretted working out. — Hippiecowgirl
  • Don't eat any food that your great grandma wouldn't have recognized. — Spectra
  • Consistency is key. — Lizkiernan
  • Work up a sweat and make it an activity you enjoy. — Gothamgal
  • Crash dieting and restrictive diets rarely work and are difficult to maintain. Make changes that you can see yourself keeping up for life. — Yaliyah

To see the other five,


  • Eat a rainbow! Eat foods that are the colors of the rainbow every day. — Kate516
  • Get enough sleep. Without that, all your other good acts start off with a handicap. — Pixelhaze
  • Exercise is an investment, not a sacrifice. — Zuzanka
  • Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're content (not full). Food = energy. Fiber is awesome. — Lemuse20
  • Suck your stomach in when you're waiting in line. It tightens your abs and doesn't take up any time. — GenesisRocks
