As the holiday season comes to an end, and the New Year begins, it’s time to reflect on the past year and celebrate accomplishments and set new goals. Hopefully last year, you lost a pound or two instead of gaining, and you will have no need to start over with another resolution…you can continue your forward momentum and make even more progress in 2014.
Wherever you may be in your journey toward optimal weight, health and nutrition, you should be proud of your accomplishments, and now take it even further. There is ALWAYS room for improvement.
“Building a healthy diet is like building muscles or learning a new skill – if you make the commitment and practice every day, you will get stronger, you will see results, and it will become easier and more enjoyable.” – Dr. Fuhrman
- If you have already added a large salad every day, now add a serving of cooked green vegetables
- Ditch the sugar and replace it with fresh fruit.
- Aim to get all of the GBOMBS (greens, beans, onions, mushrooms and berries) into your diet every day.
- Stick to your plan even when eating out. Ask for your food with no salt or oil, steamed vegetables or an extra salad.
- Knowledge, not willpower will help you to make the best food decisions. Read, read, read. My suggestions: Eat to Live, The China Study, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and My Beef With Meat.
- Read Testimonials. Other people’s success can be a huge motivator.
- Watch related documentaries such as Forks Over Knives.
- Know when you need to ask for help. The guidance of a nutritionist can be invaluable.
