2017 – Your Healthiest Year Yet
Get Specific. Our habits and even our health are a cumulative result of many small choices each day, so it makes sense to break down smaller goals into very specific behaviors for your particular challenges. For example, avoiding foods with more than 2 grams of sugar may include taking sugar-free treats to enjoy during work birthday celebrations, keeping food in a cooler at your desk to avoid the break room, taking a sugar-free dessert to a family celebration, offering fresh fruit along with cake when hosting a birthday party, finding new recipes and products that you enjoy, not purchasing sugary foods for yourself or others in your family, and having low-sugar treats available for family members. Thinking through situations ahead of time and having a plan and a goal in mind will improve your success.
