Healthy Eating Tips from Celebrity Chef Geoffrey Zakarian:
•    Portion control is very important. You should set a calorie goal per day for best healthy eating results.
•    Clean out your pantry and refrigerator and then completely restock it with healthy food items!
•    Eliminate all processed foods, including cane sugar.

Best Workout Tips from Celebrity Chef Geoffrey Zakarian:
•    Concentrate on small daily goals. 
•    Try to stay off of social media, where there are so many unrealistic figures and athletes. Compare yourself today to yourself yesterday, and from there make small incremental changes. 
•    Be realistic. A real change is for life, it’s not just a 3 or 6-day fix!
