Nutrition Corner: Making New Year Resolutions Stick

Two of the most common new year’s resolutions are to eat healthier and exercise more. The start of the new year is a great time to take inventory of your health and set realistic, achievable goals to improve your health status. Here are 4 helpful tips to make sure you reach your goals this year!

  1. Schedule Time to Meal Plan. Add meal planning to your calendar on a weekly or monthly basis. Use this time to decide what you will eat and when, make a shopping list, and go to the grocery store. Post your meal plan to your refrigerator or pantry.
  2. Make Time for Breakfast. The people who have had the most success with weight loss are those who start each day with a healthy breakfast. Great options include fruit & veggie smoothies, oatmeal, Greek yogurt parfaits, and egg muffins. Many recipes can be made ahead and frozen so they are ready to go for your busy morning.
  3. Ditch the Distractions. Phones, TV, and work can all distract you from your hunger and fullness cues, which can lead to overeating. Make it a goal to have at least 1 distraction free meal per day.
  4. Find Accountability. Having someone to help you reach your goals is key. You do not have to do this alone! Whether it be a friend, family member, spouse, or a dietitian, choose someone to be your partner in your health goals this year.
