Cookies, and Stuffing and Pies OH MY!!
During the holiday season, it can seem nearly impossible to avoid these delicious foods.
A study from NIH suggests that Americans will gain weight this holiday season.
Although average weight was noted at approximately one pound, over time, gaining and not maintaining weight makes Americans more susceptible for obesity and diseases.
The New Year is now upon us and the perfect time to look forward to the “New You”!
Here are several easy steps for a fresh start in 2013!
- Stop skipping meals! The New Year should bring some inspiration to go grocery shopping and begin planning your meals. Here is an easy tip…Make one of your meals a protein and fiber packed Salad. Add grilled chicken or turkey to your salad with light vinaigrette. Add all the veggies you want. Get some beans or walnuts as a topping to add additional fiber and protein.
- Rethink Your Drink! Water is a great way to stay hydrated. It helps to eliminate extra waste in the body. Also; it has been proven as a metabolism booster allowing the body to work more efficiently when it is hydrated.
