Millions of people will begin some sort of diet or fitness plan this week. Unfortunately most will fail, and the average dieter quits after 15 days. This does not have to be you, you can do it.
Here are some pointers to help you stay healthy and on track this new year.
January is the hardest month to make a change
January can be the hardest and most depressing month of all to make and stick to resolutions. Your body will have a hangover after the holidays. It takes time to rewire your brain and your blood to get back to being clean and lean again after a month of eating poorly.
Don't Starve Yourself
Eat good food, not boring food. Eat food that will make your body and mind feel good. Steamed chicken breast is not going to help you get slim. Give your body a break from alcohol and excess sugar. Eat fruit and legumes that will still nourish you without making you feel deprived.
Get rid of the Christmas Food
Don’t let guilt make you eat all those holiday dessert leftovers. Get it out of the house. Throw it away or bring it into work if you can’t throw it away, let your coworkers eat it.
Never go food shopping hungry. Don’t buy things at the store that you just know that you should not eat at home. Shop for healthy and delicious foods.
You may fall off the wagon, get back on
Trying to lose weight is a process. If you eat too much or skip exercise one day, don't be too hard on yourself. Don’t give up, start again tomorrow, but don’t keep putting it off until tomorrow.
Think about it
Why do you want to get fit? Why do you want to get healthy? Think about why you want to lose weight when you start to slip into holiday habits. Look for reasons to stick to your resolution.
