Everyone makes a New Year's resolution to be healthier, but precious few actually follow through on it!
But what if there were simple ways you could improve your health?
Dietician Julieanna Hever says there are, and she has ten amazing tips for staying healthy in 2013!
Stop counting and start listening.
Forget calories, fat grams, and carbohydrates. The more we count, the more confused we get, and it has no benefit to the waistline. Instead, tune into your true signals of hunger and satiety to know when to eat and when you have had enough. If you eat a widely varied, high fiber, whole foods diet, you will get the perfect amount of macronutrients (carbs, fats, proteins) you need naturally. When you feel hungry: STOP, close your eyes, and ask yourself, “Am I truly hungry? Does an apple sound delicious?” If the answer is “yes,” eat. If not, try curbing your eating by staying out of the kitchen and treating yourself to a non-food reward like:
· Taking a hot bath with a splash of essential oil or salts
· Surfing your favorite websites
· Reading a juicy book
· Searching social media for supportive friends, groups, and inspiration
· Playing good music
· Texting, calling, or emailing someone who makes you feel good
