According to the Journal of Psychology, nearly two thirds of us will make a New Year’s resolution at some point in our lives.
But whether we aspire to lose a few pounds, get more organized, get fit, eat better or quit smoking, only 8% of us will actually achieve what we set out to accomplish.(i) Who is surprised? Probably none of us, right, because if it was so easy we probably wouldn’t need resolutions in the first place.
One way to be successful with resolutions is to be far more specific when setting the goals. So instead of “eating better”, commit to making two specific dietary changes every day.
Eating an apple a day might not sound like much of a change, but over the course of a year you eat three bushels of apples. That’s an additional 1500 mg of whole food fiber and a whole lot of additional antioxidants going into your body every day.
But here’s the best part: if you eat the apple instead of your usual candy bar or giant muffin, you also eliminate 100 to 200 calories per day –- leading to a weight loss of 10 to 20 POUNDS over that same year.
So start your 2015 health transformation today! Commit to a specific positive dietary change and stick with it.
