Wow! Isn’t it hard to believe that 2014 is over? What a year it has been!! I received so many unexpected blessings and some of those blessings have left me scrabbling to keep up with everything, thus my MIA blog posts. It’s all good though! I’m back and my life is back to my “normal” and I am ready to jump back in to helping educate others about the importance of good nutrition & staying healthy in 2015 and for many years to come. I am always aware that there is a greater plan in store for me & that He has my back. Everything in life happens for a reason! That is what I say to myself when things don’t go the way I think they should. 2014 was a great year! I made some big changes in my life as far as my health & wellness goes and my personal business. 2015 is going to be even more exciting and more amazing! I have big goals to help even more people attain their own personal health and wellness goals. I’m taking things to a new level in 2015. I’m inspired to help you create a new and improved you. So, with that I would love to share my 6 tips for making 2015 your healthiest year ever!
NEW YEAR, NEW LEVEL, NEW YOU…6 TIPS FOR MAKING 2015 YOUR HEALTHIEST YEAR EVER!
Tip #1: DRINK YOUR WATER
This is SO much more important than people realize. Drink your water people! Put down the soft drinks, sports drinks, flavored waters, teas and coffees and DRINK YOUR WATER! You should be drinking 1/2 of your body weight in ounces. So, if you weigh 160 pounds then you need 80 ounces of water A DAY. Keep track of your water intake. Chances are if you are a water drinker…you don’t drink as much as you think you do. Water fills you up, so drink a glass before each meal. I like to start my day with a glass of ice cold water…it gets my metabolism charged and ready to go for the day.
Tip #2: WALK MORE
I recommend getting a step tracker. There are many of them on the market. Choose the one that’s right for you and aim for 10,000 steps a day.
Tip #3: KEEP A FOOD JOURNAL
This is one of my favorite tips. Most people don’t realize how many mindless calories they consume a day. Write down everything you put in your mouth and then total up those calories. I’m sure you will be shocked by how many calories you are consuming that you shouldn’t be. Simple changes in your eating can make all the difference. I do not suggest anyone go on a “diet”. We all know they help us to lose the weight but then we eventually gain it all back (and more) when we go off the diet. I suggest you simply make healthier choices every day. Give your body the proper nutrition it needs to work at it’s very best. It’s ok to treat yourself and it’s ok to splurge on occasion. Just don’t do it every day! 😉
Tip #4: CONSUME LESS CARBS
I’m a big fan of a low glycemic carb lifestyle. We eat WAY TOO MANY carbs on a daily basis and these carbs are wrecking havoc on our bodies. Eating carbs such as breads, potatoes, crackers, chips, cookies, cereal and etc. repeatedly spike our blood sugar levels which stimulates the release of insulin in order to bring the blood sugar level down. This process over and over causes overeating and increases inflammation in the arteries. When you stop spiking your blood sugar levels, you stop the cravings for these high glycemic carb foods. When someone eats a high glycemic meal that spikes the blood sugar (a sandwich, chips, cookie & soda) they will eat 80% more food the rest of the day!! That’s HUGE!! Isn’t it? I also recommend eat no carbs after 6:00pm.
Tip #5: SUPPLEMENT
Taking high quality nutritional supplements is crucial these days. Not only does it promote health benefits but supplementing gives your body the important nutrients we simply are not getting from our foods these days. Our soils are depleted of the rich vitamins and minerals that it once had, thus our produce is also depleted of these vitamins and minerals. It’s virtually impossible to eat only the best organic raw food diet and still get all of the nutrients your body needs. Supplementation is the key to feeding your body and helping it run at it’s very best.
‘Tip #6: DETOX & CLEANSE
This is one of the most important tips I can share with you because this is the missing link for most people. There are LOTS of cleanses and detoxing products out there. I know…I’ve tried many. However, the BEST way to detox your body is to do a nutritional cleanse. One that not only removes the toxins from your body but also feeds your body the essential nutrients it needs. When you add the best possible nutrition plus a cleanse that removes the toxins, you get amazing results. Not only will you SEE the results but you will feel them too. Most who do a nutritional cleansing program, have more energy, less joint pain, less anxiety, sleep better, lose weight, notice inch loss, and much more. Please feel free to reach out to me or check out this video here for more information on the nutritional cleansing program I use & recommend. It’s whole food nutrition that is all natural, organic and non-GMO.
I wish you all the very best in 2015. If you desire to lose weight and just get your health back, I would love to help you with your goals. I have a money back guaranteed plan for you that will work and will produce results for you! Let’s make 2015 the year that we lose the weight for good and live our healthiest lives ever!!
