New Year’s Food Resolution

January 4, 2013

Every year millions of people make New Year’s resolutions.  As noted by the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Psychology, 45% of Americans make New Years resolutions, and 8% are successful.  The number one resolution is…. drum roll please….

Losing weight!

If a New Year’s resolution is statistically not the way to loose weight, how about setting yourself up for a successful way of eating?

  • Don’t keep junk food around.  If you’re like me, you’ll eat it!  If it’s not available, you’ll have to make a trip out in the cold to get that junk food.
  • Snack on dried fruits if you have a sweet tooth.blog veggies
  • Craving sugar?  How about a teaspoon of honey?  It’s so sweet that your craving just may go away.
  • Eat before grocery shopping.  No explanation needed.
  • While you’re at it, shop the perimeter.  Real foods (fruit, veggies, meat, juices) are found around the perimeter of the grocery store.  Super processed crap is found in the middle aisle.
  • Carry a water bottle – you’ll be more likely to drink water,  stay hydrated and keep the munchies at bay.
