Health Tip and Practice Info
Keep those resolutions all year long
The start of a new year often means the start of new habits. Eating healthier food and becoming more physically active is often on the top of many people's list, but it's easy for these new expectations to become overwhelming. Set realistic goals for yourself this year. A healthy diet and regular physical activity can easily be achieved by making some of these easy, conscious decisions:
Eat breakfast every day. When you don't eat breakfast, you are likely to make up for the calories you saved by eating more later in the day. Choose a quick, healthy breakfast option such as yogurt with fruit or toast with sliced banana and a bit of peanut butter. Many people who maintain long-term weight loss eat breakfast daily.
Drink water. Choosing water keeps you from drinking something else that may be loaded with calories and sugar. People who drink sugar-sweetened beverages tend to consume more calories.
Eat smaller food portions. Try putting only the amount you want to eat in a small bowl and don't go back for more. People eat more when they start with larger portion sizes.
Maintain a physical activity routine. Regular physical activity is an important part of maintaining weight loss. Keep up your good habits before, during, and after the New Year. If you need extra encouragement, be physically active with a friend or relative.
