I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We’re almost at the start of a new year; will you treat it as a new beginning?
A new year means that you get a fresh start and can use the next 12 months to make positive changes. Actually the start of every new day is a fresh start but let’s not digress too far from the point.
If you make any resolutions for the New Year make sure they are ones that benefit your health because you’re health is
THE most important thing you will ever have.
Try these tips to ensure you have a healthy new year in 2012
New Year Tip 1 – Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Skipping meals does NOT, I repeat NOT help you to lose weight or reduce your body fat. You need to stay properly fuled throughout each day so the best way is to plan for each meal and eat small regular meals of natural, wholesome foods.
New Year Tip 2 – Move more. Regular exercise can literally save your life! You don’t have to book yourself a place on a boot camp (although it’s a pretty good idea) but just make an effort to move more. So, walk to the shops instead of driving, take the stairs instead of the lift/escalator and park your car the furthest away from your destination so you have to walk further.
New Year Tip 3 – Go 1940’s and eat your meals around the table. You tend to eat more blindly if you’re staring at the TV and the chemical make up in your body doesn’t work properly so you’re more likely to gain weight. People that eat when sat at a table tend to eat less, digest their food better, and are generally healthier and slimmer.
New Year Tip 4 – Eat protein with every single meal. Proteins are the building blocks to your very existence. They help you function at your best, provide you with brain power, help heal your cells and stave off hunger. When you eat fruit, have it with some almonds; when you eat vegetables, eat them with some chicken or fish or vegetarian protein. Repeat after me; if I eat lean and natural protein, I will stay lean and healthy.
That’s it folks, stay safe, enjoy every second and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
Here’s to an AWESOME 2012!
