Staying Healthy in the New Year 2

I hope you’ve accomplished your goal for week one. If you missed the article, go back to January 9th on my blog. https://junefoster.com/?p=6489

 

As you add one new habit each week, remember to keep it simple but be consistent. One of your new changes could be a food choice—or two if you’re really ambitious. Here are list of suggestions. You can think of many more that fit into your week. Go on line and Google: healthy food choices

Disclaimer: if you are diabetic, follow your doctor’s orders. My husband suffers from this disease, so I understand the importance.

  1. Add three fruits and three vegetables to your diet every day. 
  2. Eat brown rice instead of white rice.
  3. Limit yourself to one bread choice a day.
  4. Cut out fried food. (That’s a hard one, especially if you live in the south as I do.)

5.Purge your kitchen pantry of candy and cookies and don’t buy any more.

6.(Here’s a biggy for me.) Don’t eat while watching TV.

  1. Give up drinking sugar colas.
  2. Drink 67 ounces of water a day.
  3. Make sure you’re eating around 46 ounces of protein a day. More if you’re really active. 

 

Next week, watch for suggestions for healthy safe exercise options.

 

Remember: add one new habit each week to those from the previous week and stick with them. The key is consistency no matter how small the new habit.
