Nutrition Tip of the Day

Here it is!!! Your First Nutrition Tip of the Day! MAKE SMALL CHANGES FIRST!

Rome was not built in a day!! And neither were your poor eating habits. It has taken a lifetime to end up where you are now so be kind to yourself. Kind...but firm. Really consider WHY it's important to you to make these changes. Then set your sights on making small, significant changes FIRST.
Start reading labels. To make changes with yourself & your family, you have to be honest with yourself about what your food is doing to your health. You also need to have realistic goals....so start with one or two goals a month.
Here are some great stater goals!
*Get rid of all High Fructose Corn Syrup in your house.
*Veggies with every meal. Here is a great guideline: your protein portion the size of your open palm (not hand, just the palm). You can then fill the rest of your plate with veggies.
*Kick the soda habit. Just drink water
Set some definitive goals for yourself & then write them down. I can't stress that enough- you have to write down your goals for you to really implement them and take them seriously! Put them on your grocery list, write them on the door of your fridge, tell your family members too so when they say – Hey! Where’s the soda!? You can say – Remember, we’re not having that anymore. And tell them why. You are making strides towards living happier, healthier lives! Once you've met your goal for a month...you can set another one. You’re moving forward!
If you found this helpful and tune in for another tip tomorrow!

    The average person drinks more than 400 calories a day—double what he or she used to—and alone gets around 10 teaspoons of added sugar every single day from soft drinks. Swap out sweetened teas and sodas for no-cal drinks and you could lose up to 40 pounds in a single year!
