Today's Fitness Tip: Use Fasting to your advantage.
Today is the start of Lent. Fasting from meals or certain foods on certain days is a practice used during Lent for some faiths, especially Catholics. Ash Wednesday and Friday's during Lent are days to abstain from eating meat, for instance.  Many will end up giving up certain foods during this time, such as junk foods, to fast from that in their life.
You can use this practice in your own life to work on cutting a bad eating habit out of your pattern of habits. Maybe you drink too much pop per day, so work on reducing that.  If you can't totally give it up, at least greatly reduce it, such as going from 3-4 per day down to 1. 
It's good to take some short periods of time to work on cleaning up your diet anyway, because not everyone is perfect and will slip up on their dieting.  Fasting is a good, brief thing to help you focus on something that can get you on track.
