5 Healthy Resolutions to maintain in 2013

Posted:

1. Drink Water

We cannot underestimate the importance of this.  People often mistake thirst for hunger.. So next time you feel that hunger urge reach for water first. Water also helps you feel full

2. A Couple Splurges

Allow yourself to eat whatever you want 2 meals out of every 21.  This will not cause you to completely gain back your losses and inflict enough damage to subvert your weight loss... You will also feel mentally less deprived.

3. Start with 10%

Pick a smaller more attainable goal to focus on initially.   People who do this have the best chance of hitting their goals and ultimate success!

4. Up Your Protein

Research suggests that protein prolongs the feeling of fullness better than carbohydrates or fats do. Many studies found that people who ate a high protein breakfast or lunch were less hungry at their next meal. 

5. Stay Away from All sodas in 2013 and Beyond

Soft drinks are a major source of empty calories.   If you are truly thirsty.. Reach for Water or Unsweetened ice tea instead of Soda.
