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.


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.
