The start of a new year is an excellent time to make healthy lifestyle changes, break bad habits, and improve your overall well-being. It’s no surprise that many Americans begin the New Year with a resolution to become healthy. The most popular New Year resolves to exercise more, lose weight, and eat a healthier diet.

Make a meal plan that you’ll want to eat

To keep interested in well-balanced meals, design a weekly menu that meets your taste preferences. When you feel that you’re on a diet or that you have to eat something, you’re more inclined to abandon the plan. It’s beneficial to prepare something to share with family or friends to make keeping to a meal plan easier.

Lose and keep the weight off

A weight-loss resolution is one of the most significant measures you can take toward better health. Losing just 5 to 10% of your body weight will significantly reduce your risk of chronic health disorders like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Prepare your kitchen strategically

Making multiple weekly grocery visits takes time that may be better spent on things like physical activity. Try tactics like buying bulk beans, grains, and pasta to get the majority of what you need in the fewest trips necessary. Remember that not everything must be fresh.
