Happy Healthy New Year

Happy Healthy New Year

Start the New Year by making a healthy resolution. Here are five worthy goals for the new year to help keep the body healthy.

Exercise
Jumpstart your metabolism, burn fat and improve cardiovascular health by exercising at least 20 minutes a day.

Sugar
Cane sugar is the number one enemy for lowering the immune system and decreasing gut health. Start being more conscious of the sugar content in the foods you choose to eat. The simple rule is always to try picking items that have 0-5 grams of sugar per serving. Indirectly, your caloric intake will decrease by choosing items that are lower in sugar.

Apple Cider Vinegar
End your day with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a small amount of honey. It is a great probiotic and helps to digest food faster by increasing stomach acidity.
Experiencing heartburn? A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar will help resolve it.
Apple cider has also shown to help lower belly fat, lower blood sugar and helps to lower cholesterol.

Hydration
It’s important to keep bodies hydrated at all times. In adult men, 60 percent of their body is water and 55% in adult women. As we get older, our metabolism slows down and our bodies have a harder time flushing out waste so it becomes even more important to drink plenty of water to flush away waste and detox our bodies.

Diversity
The latest research has shown that you can actually lose weight and boost the immune system by adding more color to meals. Nuts and seeds are also great ways to add more flavor and color to foods. Increase omega and fiber intake by just simply adding one tablespoon of sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds to oatmeal, granola, yogurt or even salads.
