Happy New Year!
With a new year often comes a renewed pledge to lose weight, be healthy and keep fit. Sound like you? Before you do anything drastic and embark on a crash diet or intense exercise regime, know that it doesn’t have to be this way!
With a few simple tweaks you can still achieve your goals, and ultimately see results that last too. Munch is here to support you with info and inspiration to help you eat your way to better health in 2014. Let’s get started…
1) It’s a lifestyle, NOT a diet
Fad diets are doomed to fail, but by making simple swaps to your diet you’ll see results that last. Sure you may not lose half a stone in a week, but you will establish healthy living habits that last a lifetime.
2) Eat well, not less
You don’t need to deprive yourself to be healthy, simply crowd out the bad stuff with healthy whole foods like good fats, lean protein and abundance of fruit and veg. You may even find you’re eating more than ever before!
3) Keep on Moving
Exercise plays a major part in helping you to look and feel good, so try to keep on moving even once that initial January enthusiasm has waned. Even incidental exercise like walking more could benefit you, so don’t feel disheartened if you don’t have time for the gym.
4) Make Health a priority
So many people focus on weight when they kick start a health regime, but good health goes so much further beyond than what the scales say. Hopefully you’ll soon notice that you have more energy, your skin is clearer and you sleep better, as well as losing a few inches in the process. Any weight loss is just a bonus.
