3 Realistic Diet Resolutions To Keep In 2019

At the beginning of each year, many people decide to set resolutions to change their habits or lifestyle. Making resolutions for your health and wellness is a great idea, but it’s important to think about changes that you can actually keep all year long. Continue reading for a few realistic diet resolutions to take with you into 2019!

Cook Lunch and Dinner 4x A Week

Eating out is not only bad for our wallets, but it can also be bad for our health. Even if you think you’re making healthy choices when eating out or buying lunch at work, you never really know how the food is prepared or all of the ingredients used. The best thing you can do for your health and the health of your family is to prepare meals from scratch. While this is not always possible for those with busy lives, make a realistic resolution of cooking your lunch and dinner at least four times a week.

Fruits and Vegetables Every Day

Another easy diet change to make is to start incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your daily meals. If you find this difficult, start by aiming to eat the recommended two servings of fruits and three servings of vegetables, and it will become easier to make healthy choices throughout the year. Whether you pack carrot sticks to as a snack or make a strawberry-banana smoothie in the morning, making a conscious effort to eat more fruits and vegetables will bring many positive changes to your mind and body!

Stop Eating When Full

This resolution may take some work, as many of us were told as kids to finish everything on our dinner plate. While it’s important not to waste food, it’s also crucial to listen to your body to know when you are full. Start by measuring out your meals to have a better idea of how much you are cooking, rather than putting too much food on your plate. The key is to find the right balance so that you are not left hungry and unsatisfied, but not feeling too full. Mindful eating is an excellent resolution for everyone to take into 2019, as it can bring various benefits to your overall health.
