New Year’s health goals!
Making goals for the year ahead can be really enjoyable or really discouraging. Often, we tell ourselves that we will “eat more veggies” or “lose weight.” The problem is, these goals are vague and difficult to use for measuring progress. Instead try this helpful tip:
- Write down one specific health/nutrition goal each month. For example, for the month of January, write down “Eat 20 grams of fiber every day”
- When you think of Fiber, be mindful of “whole-grain” or “less processed”. Fiber helps you feel satisfied after meals and lower blood cholesterol levels.
- Increase your fiber intake by eating the recommended 2 servings of fruit and 3 servings of veggies every day.
- Make “food swaps” such as overnight oats instead of sugary cereal for breakfast.
- Track your fiber intake in an app or simply make mental notes.
- Set time aside each week to evaluate your progress and make adjustments to your goal as needed.
