The Pioppi Diet

The diet was created by Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist, and Donal O'Neill, who was an international athelete. They both advocate for the low-carb, high-fat diet plan.

This diet encourages eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, nuts, legumes, and fish. It also includes lifestyle changes such as getting adequate sleep, regular socialization, and a weekly-24 hour fast.

The diet discourages red meat, starchy carbs (bread and pasta), and sweet treats.

Turn Up Your Palms

Whenever you're doing something that does not require use of your hands, turn them so that they're palm-side up. You also can do it while standing or walking, leaving your arms down at your sides and turning your palms so that they face outward in the direction you're facing.
