Let's Refresh

I know that a lot of information has been thrown at you so I wanted to do a little refresher to get things in order.

By now we should have started eliminating soda and really sugary sports drinks and juices from our diets. Anybody experiencing withdrawals?? I hope not! If you are, it will get easier with time... and remember, you still have that cheat day! :)

We should have also cleaned out our pantry's, refrigerators, and freezers for some food evaluation. By now we should have gone to the grocery store and started buying some good healthy snacks like fruits, veggies, nuts, whole grains, and some dairy (like yogurt and cottage cheese). If you haven't done this yet, that's ok! Just try to get it done within the next few days so we can all start moving into the nitty gritty of our healthy eating.

The last thing I want to refresh on is the number one rule for healthy eating... READ THE FOOD LABELS AND THE INGREDIENTS!! It is so important to know what you are putting into your body and try to avoid as many un-natural things as possible. Remember eating healthy isn't only about losing weight, it's also about getting the nutrients your body needs for strong bones, a good heart, and an overall better lifestyle.

Healthy Tip #4: Start doing portion control, we will discuss it more in another blog, but start to think about cutting down your meals. Also don't skip ANY meal! And eat plenty of healthy snacks in between, you will find your not as hungry!
