Number Eleven: Eat Tomatoes to Prevent Sunburn. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use sunscreen! Tomatoes provide an excellent defense against sun damage, so if you have extra sensitive skin, make sure to eat a lot of tomatoes at the sunniest time of the year.

Number Nine: Use an Apple to Determine if You’re Really Hungry. If you think you might be hungry but you’re just not sure, ask yourself if you want an apple. If you want an apple, go ahead and eat it (or another equally healthy snack)! Otherwise, just admit to yourself that you’re probably bored, not hungry. Try chewing a piece of gum instead.

Number Eight: Avoid Cramps by Breathing Properly While You Run. If you’re constantly cramping up when you go on your morning jogs, try regulating your breathing. Specifically, exhale only when your left foot hits the ground – the regularity will help get rid of cramps in no time.
