These are additional tips for a Healthier You! Simple ideas to help you stay focused on your goal, a healthy life.
1. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store and avoid processed food. Even better, choose organic and locally grown meats, dairy, fruits, and vegetables.
2. Make a list of foods that are not only good for you, but taste good to you. Keep these on hand, in the refrig, cabinet, at your desk while you work, in your purse or briefcase. When the need for a snack hits, you will be prepared to have something appropriate that will give you the sound nutrition and taste so you don’t head for the junk food.
3. Think ahead! Where are you going to be at lunch? Plan your meal, what will you order so you don’t sabotage all your hard work.
4. Be your own best friend. Put your goals and plans for a Healthy New You ahead of pressure from others who offer temptations to lead you back to your old habits! 5. Relax and have fun finding out what foods work with you and what things you just have to avoid. Don’t let food run your life.
