If you are thinking about having a resolution for the new year, I have some suggestions for you. Now you may go on the internet looking for the best ideas on how to invest your money, and that is fine and dandy, but all the money in the world will not help much if your body is weak.

Is there anything at all that you can do to have a long and healthy life, one that is full of energy and provides you with the vigor and stamina that you need? Of course there is. I think we all know the answer.

A good healthy diet can help you in many ways in life. You don’t have to starve yourself to lose weight or get to a certain physique. No, not at all.

Eating healthy is one of the easiest ways to feel better, look younger, and save money. Of course you may need to consult a doctor or health professional when you make changes to your diet.

If you stop and take a look at the fruits and vegetables in the grocery store, you will see ask kinds of shapes and colors. That variety can help you, as each type of fruit or vegetable contains different vitamins and minerals that can help your body.

Which type of fruit and vegetable is best? Well, they have different purposes and functions.

  • Green leafy vegetables are very healthy
  • Fruits and vegetables with bright colors are generally good for you
  • Check internet sites for specific nutritional information on fruits and vegetables for you and your needs

I know from personal experience that I have been able to lose weight and feel healthier simply by eating more nuts and vegetables. Your results may vary, of course.

I discovered that I can allow myself to eat an almost unlimited amount of vegetables, and for desserts I substitute fruits for things like cakes and sweets. It works for me.

I think it helps psychologically for myself to allow for eating more of something. I don’t like to have limits on my food so I tell myself that I can eat as many vegetables as I want during my lunch and dinner meals. I have other foods, of course, but giving myself freedom to allow unlimited vegetables feels very empowering.

This type of plan may not work for everybody, and it might not be right for you. Always consult a medical professional if you need advice.

As the new year arrives, I am going to keep on keeping on with what I have been doing. I will try to do the following:

  • Drink more water
  • Eat more nuts
  • Consume more vegetables

I want to live a long healthy life so I know it is a long process to get there. I don’t have to deprive myself of everything that I enjoy.

I will focus on adding more of certain food things to my life and everything else will take care of itself. You can do it too.
