As we reflect on the past year we remember the accomplishments that made our year great, and the
challenges that made us stronger. Moving into 2015 we face endless potential to make our lives better than the year before.
Health is a precious gift we often take for granted until it is gone. By taking time in 2015 to invest in your health, you will truly be investing in your future for years to come.
Lifestyle change which includes a healthy diet, regular vigorous exercise, plenty of water, good quality sleep, and stress management is the foundation of caring for your health and well being. No one is perfect, but strive for a healthy lifestyle every day. If it is important to you, you will find a way. Avoid excuses and make time to better care for yourself so you can better care for others.
Studies show weight loss as low as 10% of your current bodyweight promotes health benefits. That means if you weigh 180 lbs losing 18 lbs can significantly improve your health. Improvements in cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, inflammation, and insulin resistance are the most common improvements from 10% weight reduction.
Each January, 1 in 3 Americans make New Year’s resolutions to better themselves. 46% are still keeping up their New Year’s resolution 6 months later. Loss of motivation is a big factor in losing momentum as the year progresses.
Fit Nutrition 4 Life is here to support you in your healthy endeavors to better your future. This year we will be launching counseling sessions with dietitians. You will be able to schedule your appointment to meet over the phone or through Skype to develop a healthy eating plan and exercise regime that is realistic and fits within your lifestyle. You can also meet throughout the year to maintain motivation and receive coaching for fresh perspective and personal challenges.
We wish you and your family a healthy and happy New Year and we look forward to being with you in 2015!
