Regular exercise,: eliminate refined sugars and refined carbohydrates, eat a vegan, vegetarian or paleo diet. Lean animal protein if desired such as skinless chicken, fish... most people fail to realize that they can get all of the protein required from vegetables and legumes. Supplement with a high quality vitamin supplement to assure adequate intake of B12 and D3.
