5 Healthy New Year's Resolution Ideas

New Year’s resolutions – you have to love them. At the beginning of each year one-third of us resolve to do something different that year. However after only one week into the New Year, 25% of us have thrown that idea away like a worn shoe.

Only 46% of us will have stuck to our goal by the time we are half way through the year.

If you are one of the third of people that makes a New Year’s resolution, here are five of the more common health-related ones that will give you a healthier lifestyle:

1) Lose weight

After all of the holiday meals, parties and office celebrations, many of us are ready to lose the holiday pounds that found us and refuse to leave.

Patience is the name of the game when trying to lose weight. Keep in mind the weight you are trying to take off didn’t come on overnight, so don’t expect to lose it as fast.

A safe weight loss recommended by healthcare professionals is about 1 to 1 ½ pounds per week.

Weight loss works by burning more calories than you consume. A deficit of 3,500 calories per week will result in losing 1 pound.

Focus on eating fruits and vegetables, nuts, lean meats and fish in the correct proportions to keep the calorie count down.

2) Quit smoking

On average, people that smoke live ten years less than those who don’t. Smoking can cause a whole host of health issues including cancer, heart disease, stroke and respiratory problems.

People that have successfully quit tell us they tried many times and failed until they found the right method that worked for them.

3) Reduce stress

Many of us are stressed to the limit, but may not realize it.

Chronic stress can cause depression, obesity, heart disease and insomnia – all which take a toll on our heath.

Reduce stress by taking vacations, socializing with other people, and getting enough good sleep.

4) Drink less alcohol

One or two drinks a day don’t seem to have much of a negative effect on our body, but when drinking excessively or binging, it can cause depression, memory loss or even seizures.

When done to the chronic level over a long period of time, hypertension, stroke, liver damage and even cancer are all possible health issues – some of which are life-threatening.

5) Get more sleep

Our bodies need an adequate amount of sleep each night to repair themselves.

Without enough sleep we have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity and mental fogginess.

The mistake many of us make is we make too many resolutions at once. Resolve to do just one or two things at a time. Once successful, then add others as appropriate.

Try The Noom Diet For New Year Weight Loss
by: Warren

You may have heard of the Noom Diet, which is often referred to simply as Noom. This is an app that you can use to correct your eating habits so that it gives you a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Thanks to the behavioral changes the app will guide you through, you’ll also lose weight. Once you download the app, you’ll gain access to all the benefits it has to offer as well as the library of information it contains.

You’ll learn about nutrition and how to eat right. You’ll also learn one of the keys to weight loss, which is keeping your stress under control. The app will help you figure out what your health goals are and how to implement them.

There are challenges every week to make weight loss and getting fit fun. You’ll be able to keep track of the milestones you reach with your weight loss as well as the steps you take along the way.

You’ll keep track of the foods that you eat, the exercise routines that you do and your weight as well. But it’ll also track important health benefits, such as your blood pressure and glucose readings.

Something that’s really helpful with this app is that you gain access to coaching assistance, and studies have shown that dieters who have the support and expertise of a coaching team tend to lose more weight and keep it off long term.

Because it’s personalized, Noom lets each individual find success in a way that works for them. The basic strategy of the diet is that you’ll end up eating fewer calories than what your body needs.

When you do that, you will lose weight. You’re not left on your own to figure out how many calories you need to consume. The program will find that for you once you input your information.

It’ll decide this based on how much you currently weigh, what your height and weight are and whether you’re male or female. You’ll get a calorie maximum for each day. What a lot of people love about this app is that you don’t have to give up eating the foods that you love.

You can still have all your favorites, but in moderation as long as you stay within your caloric limits. Within the app, you’ll have access to helpful food lists as well as recipes that you can use to plan your meals.

The tool is perfect for people who need hands on help with dieting as well as the encouragement of a support team. It’s easy to get started once you pay the monthly subscription fee and download the app.

You just answer the list of questions and Noom does the rest. A word of caution, though. One big mistake that you can make, especially in the beginning is spending your total calorie limit on a few high calorie foods at the start of your day.

You don’t want to do that. Choose foods that will allow you to eat an even number of calories throughout the day so that you never end up hungry and feeling deprived. Plus, you keep your metabolism steady.
