Life hack: a tool or technique to make your life better. There's the big-time stuff, like those eight hours a day you plough through at work followed by that killer session at the gym. Then there's the small-time stuff, like the following 50 tweaks you can make to your life. The little things that - in the long haul - will reap big results for your health and fitness.

1.    Pear Support

A medium-sized pear packs in over 200mg of potassium. This mineral is not just important for heart and bone health, it also helps muscles contract and keeps the connection between your brain and muscles strong and fast. Potassium is also great for beating muscle cramps.

2.    Get Seedy

Don't buy seedless grapes - grape seeds contain high levels of oligomeric proanthocyanidins that promote cardiovascular health and antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral activities.

3.    Grab A Granny (Smith)

Fifteen minutes before lunch, eat an apple. Research from Pennsylvania State University in the US found that people who did so ate 190 fewer calories during their midday meal than people who didn't.

4.    Raisin Hope

Eat raisins: they can provide the same workout boost as sports chews, according to the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.

5.    A ’Nana A Day

Banana benefits include boosted energy, improved mood, reduced effects of heart burn and hangovers, and helping the body recover from nicotine withdrawal.

6.    Crantastic

Researchers from the University of Scranton, US, found that people who drank three glasses of cranberry juice a day for a month increased their HDL (good) cholesterol levels by 10 per cent.

7.    Goji Good

Kilo for kilo, goji berries contain 500 times more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots and more iron than steak.

8.    Boost Immunity -Grab A Kiwi

The fruit that is. Kiwifruit is packed with fibre, antioxidants and more vitamin C than an orange.

9.    Go Meatless On Mondays

Eating red meat daily can boost your risk of dying young by up to 20 per cent, particularly if it’s processed, says a US study in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Substituting nuts for red meat lowered total mortality risk by 19 per cent, while poultry and whole grains lowered the risk by 14 per cent and fish did so by seven per cent.

10.  Can Diet Drinks

They’re not going to help you lose weight - research has found artificial sweeteners trick our brains into being unable to control our energy intake. Plus, people who drink it every day may have a heightened risk of heart attack and stroke, according to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, US.
