Chances are most of us indulged a bit, or a lot over the holidays.
Some Christmas cookies, a second helping of turkey dinner, a couple of drinks. When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, being healthier and maybe losing a few pounds is often at the top of the list.
It’s easy to over indulge over the holidays, but if you are looking to get back on track, Nutritionist Bonnie Flemington says to start by looking at what’s in your cupboards and get rid of anything that’s going to tempt you.
Being healthier doesn’t have to be daunting, focus on making small changes. Flemington says, “If you add that protein fat and fiber into your breakfast particularly protein at breakfast so the hemp hearts the protein powders are great. That just gets you started really well and keeps your energy levels up keeps you full so that in the middle of the morning or middle of the afternoon you are not grabbing for that sweet snack.”
One of the most important things is meal planning at the beginning of the week. Having your dinners and healthy snacks all planned out and ready, you are less likely to make bad decisions when you are hungry.
