5 H E A L T H T I P S F O R T H E N EW Y E A R 1.ShopWellForYourself. Have healthy snacks handy. The more convenient they are, the more likelyyouare toeat them. Insteadof thinkingabout what you shouldn’t eat, promise to eat your 3 to 5 servings of vegetables each day.
4. Skip the Baking. Chances are you eat much of what you bake. Who wouldn’t? Instead make non-food gifts, or prepare ingredients for baked goods and put them in pretty jars—this year, let your gift recipient bake it up. That way, they can eat it when they want it and you don’t have to be tempted in the kitchen. 5. Hydrate. Keep your water bottle with you at all times. You should be drinking eight, 8-ounce glassesofwatereachday.Onehandy trick is tobuy a 64 ounce water jug. Fill it up in the morning and know thatyouneed tofinish itby theendof theday.
