5 ways to go green and lose weight

  • Walk or bike to work.  Not only will you lose weight but your boss may think that sweat on your brow was actually the result of hard work.
  • Grow your own.  Gardening is great exercise and you can lose a ton of weight transitioning to a greener, vegetarian diet.  Just stay off the ganja.
  • Get off the beef and dairy products.  The world’s 1.5 billion cattle are estimated to produce up to 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.  That’s more than cars, airlines and all other forms of transportation combined.
  • Use the stairs.  Stay out of elevators and off escalators.  Your thighs will start bulging and your gut will start shrinking.
  • Lose the fast food and any food that comes pre-packaged in plastic or metal containers.  Natural resources are dwindling and landfills are filling up.  The empty calories are clogging up your arteries, intestines and our national healthcare system.  Not to mention all the special ingredients, additives and salt in packaged foods that are fast-tracking you to the mortuary and a larger personal equator.
