Happy New Year!

As we all know, New Years resolutions are extremely hard to maintain.  Here are some tips to help you stick to your fitness plan!

1 . Drink PLENTY of water.

2. When eating out, as for a to-go container FIRST.  Pack half of your plate in the container before you start eating.

3. Limit your intake of butter and mayonnaise.

4. Limit fried foods.  Eat them once a week MAX, or preferably not at all.

5. Use stevia in your coffee or tea rather than sugar.

6. Instead of ground beef, replace your meals with ground turkey or meatless products.

7. Eat a variety of foods so you do not get bored.

8.  Eat fresh veggies, preferably raw, with sandwiches instead of chips.  

9. Measure portions so you can get an idea of what a cup, half a cup, and a tablespoon look like.  You will be able to practice portion control by doing this.  Portion control is an essential key to weight loss.

10. Limit sodas to once a week maximum.  Diet soda is still unhealthy.  They contain chemicals that deplete the nutrients in your body.

11. Get salad dressing on the side rather than on the salad itself.

12.  Take a multi-vitamin daily.

13.  If you don’t LOVE it, don’t eat it.
