A New Year, A New Me

It’s a new year and everyone is rushing to change their ways.  One of the most popular New Year resolutions categories would fall under health and diet.  “A new year, a new me!” At least this is what we tell ourselves.  It’s way too easy to fall off the health bandwagon, take it from me.  I have tried the amazing diet “KETO” at least 4 times in the last three months (Don’t Judge!).  100% healthy clean eating isn’t exactly the easiest thing to achieve when you are surrounded by all of those amazing holiday goodies.  The one great thing about a New Year is that we can push reset on all of our old habits and hopefully achieve new and better habits.  So for anyone wanting to dive into the Keto diet or any other clean eating diet here are a few things to consider.

  • Don’t throw away all of your current goodies you have stocked up in the cabinet.  This is self-sabotage.  You have to train your brain to have self-control.  Throwing away tempting foods will only make you crave them more!  My opinion slowly replaces the bad with the good.  This will help your pocket as well!

  • Eggs & avocados can be your best friend (specifically on Keto)!  There will be plenty of days when you feel like your stomach is eating itself and not only that, most people don’t have time to be in the kitchen making delicious snacks and meals all day.  I try to have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge ready to go.  It’s a great “go to” when you’re in a hurry!

  • Most importantly, don’t be so hard on yourself!  If someone offers you a taste of something that looks and smells amazing, just take the bite!  Balance is key in any diet.  You shouldn’t completely deprive yourself of what you desire or you might find yourself falling off that wagon and never returning.  The best thing any of us can do for ourselves is to form a habit of healthy choices and forgive ourselves during the learning process.

  1. Eating healthy is a journey. We need to learn to forgive ourselves for the “mistakes” and move on from there. 🙂 Moderation is key, but my problem is if sugar is in the house, I will eat it! So I have to get rid of all the goodies….otherwise it is all too easy for me to grab “just one” because it’s easy and convenient. My problem is that it is never just one. We all need to learn what works best for us and then adjust accordingly. God Bless!
