The key to keeping any New Year’s resolutions is to be realistic and have a sustainable action plan.  We not only need to feel inspired, but we have to also prepare.  Here’s a list of some suggested resolutions and tips on how to successfully implement them.

Take small steps to improving your overall health – avoid feeling overwhelmed from the get-go by taking “baby steps” to move closer to optimal health.  For example, choose drinking water over a soda.  This small action will move you in the right direction to better health in the long run.  By making these smarter health choices every day, you’ll be well on your way to better overall health.

Move and stay active daily –  for example, take the stairs instead of the elevator, jog back and forth to the mailbox instead of leaning out […]

Healthy Holiday Eating Strategies

The holidays are upon us and we need  to keep our resolve in making the best possible food choices when attending parties and family get togethers.  Here are some simple strategies to follow:

Stick with your normal routine – if you know you’ll be attending a holiday party, don’t deviate from your typical dietary routine.  Skipping meals or trying to save calories doesn’t work.  Before you attend an event, consume a protein and healthy fat snack like celery sticks with nut butter or a protein shake.

Don’t waiver from your goals – if you want to maintain your weight and feel great, don’t indulge in sugar-laden and starchy foods.  Stay focused and do your best.

Host your own party – this is an excellent way to control food choices.  Or if attending someone else’s party, volunteer to bring a healthy dish.

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month.  Food will always be our best medicine, and this is particularly the case with diabetes.  Early intervention can stop this potentially debilitating disease in its tracks by making only a few changes in an individual’s eating and lifestyle habits.  It is important to note that diabetes is not, in fact, a disease of blood sugar, but it’s actually a disorder of insulin and leptin signaling.

Insulin regulation plays such as an integral role in your health and longevity, that elevated levels are not only symptoms of diabetes, but other diseases as well (heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, peripheral vascular disease, obesity, and cancer).

Foods to Avoid:  Sweets, sodas, juices, breads, pasta, cereals, rice, potatoes, and corn.  You may also want to avoid or restrict fruit consumption until your blood sugar gets under control.
