Let’s start the New Year off well, shall we?!
Here are our Top 7 Health Tips to support you in starting this year off healthier than ever:
Especially after consuming sugar and alcohol over the holiday season, it’s essential to drink plenty of water to help your cells cleanse and function optimally.
Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day (room temperature water is easier for your body to utilize!)
#2 Clear your pantry.
Go through your pantry and get rid of (donate preferably) old foods and unhealthy foods.
Make space for the new and the healthy and eliminate temptations.
#3 Stock up.
It’s a whole lot easier to make healthy decisions when you have healthy options available to snack on – stock up on fresh fruit, vegetables and nuts, and carry them with you everywhere you go.
#4 Read labels.
You might be horrified at what food manufacturers sneak into food products, but the first step to all change is awareness, so take the time to check the labels before you buy.
#5 Choose quality.
Since we’re Paleo we believe in the value of meat in the human diet, but there’s a BIG difference between processed, antibiotic ridden, cage-raised meat and natural grass-finished meat. (The same applies to fruits and vegetables.)
You’ve probably heard the saying “You are what your food eats” – it’s so true and worth pondering. Choose wisely!
#6 Know the difference between grass-fed and grass-finished.
Many food labels aren’t well monitored and marketing is everything these days, so food manufacturers are quick to label foods with the latest and greatest trend. Be careful what you believe and check the facts. Most grass-fed meat is actually grain-finished!
#7 When implementing dietary changes, stick to them for at least 21 days.
It takes 21 days to form a habit that you’ll stick to, but it also takes time for your body to get rid of unhealthy foods and feel the benefits of the healthier foods you introduce, so don’t rush the transformation – give your body the time it deserves and truly embrace the lifestyle changes you make.
