For many of us, ringing in the New Year means it’s time for a new resolution. Resolutions present an opportunity to make a positive change in your life but sadly it’s rare to succeed. In fact, around 80% of New Years resolutions fail by the second week of February so the odds are stacked against you. Out of all of the different New Years resolutions out there, the two most common is a tie between exercising more and losing weight.
Diet and Exercising Go Hand-in-Hand
In order to lose weight, dieting and exercise are always paired together as the main requirements. Dieting can be one of the most rewarding positive resolutions if you stick to it and the first step is establishing a healthy diet by getting enough of the right types of food. A well-balanced and healthy diet per day typically consists of…
5-7 servings of fruit/vegetables
3-5 servings of wholemeal cereals and breads/potatoes/pasta/rice
3 servings of milk/yogurt/cheese
2 servings of meat/poultry/fish/eggs/beans/nuts
small portions of fats/oils/spreads.
Your doctor is the best person who can help you figure out and plan the best diet for you. They will be extremely valuable in establishing realistic daily, monthly, and yearly goals. Having a proper diet plan makes it easier to stick with your resolution, see the results you want, and start off 2019 right.
