We do it every year, we make the promise to lose weight, get out of debt, be nice and suddenly we’re a week into the New Year and many of us have already given up. I’m here today to help you stick to your goals, go back to them – or even make some new ones!
So why do we fail in our resolutions? There’s a new study out that says we should really bundle our resolutions together, making several at once.
That way, if you’re not doing so well in one resolution you are at least doing well in another which will give you motivation to keep going because you are seeing some progress.
Here are a few easy tips to help you stick with those resolutions to lose weight:
Let’s start with energy drinks. You may be drinking these because you’re exhausted and hoping to stimulate your energy, but you’re actually hurting your health.
I think it really is important to replace the sugar in those energy drinks with omega-3’s.
Everybody should take omega-3’s. Yes, it’s fish oil but but not just any fish oil.
You want to make sure that you have at least 500 DHA and EPA in order to get the benefits: it eases depression, relieves inflammation and you’ll sleep better.
Omega-3 does a lot of good and gives you nice organic energy that won’t keep you up at night. It balances your blood sugar and helps to kill your food cravings.
Get rid of the white sugar!
There was a new study recently published in the clinical journal Obesity that says if you take white kidney bean extract you will actually stop the sugar from being digested and stored as fat. You will also blunt your sugar cravings and balance blood sugar.
But not just any white kidney bean extract – you’ve got to read labels and make sure you get Phase 2 white kidney bean extract, which I talked about on Doctor Oz.
Phase 2 is the only white kidney bean extract on the market backed by numerous clinical studies for efficacy.
Taking white kidney bean extract containing Phase 2 makes sure that you get exactly what you need, and you’ll see results because it’s that what they call a sugar blocker.
They say the average American eats 29 pounds a year of french fries!
Get rid of them and go for green beans instead.
These are finger foods you can munch on those and trust me, you will get adapted to these!
Put them out on the counter, and everyone eats them because they are right in front of you. Broil them, season them, get creative!
So there you have it: three things to improve your health that are oh-so-doable and will help you build into your bigger resolutions.
