It’s that time of year when many of us resolve to make changes to our health but if you’re making resolutions are too vague, you’re probably setting yourself up for failure from the start. Joining an expensive gym, giving up alcohol or attempting Veganuary are not uncommon health resolutions as we head into a new year, indeed a new decade.
I’m not saying that resolutions themselves are pointless; they’re not. Often it’s your first step focusing on the potential to actually make changes to aspects of your life that you’d like to improve. However, assuming they are goals you actually want to accomplish (…pause here and consider this?!), the goals also need to be plausible and realistic. In other words, with the right support, tools and understanding, you would be able to achieve them.
Here are the 3 worst new year’s resolutions you can make for 2020!
Announcing “I’m going to get healthy”
This is a classic but the problem with it, it’s just not specific enough. What would be healthy for you? Do you want to be slimmer, fitter, less tired or have glowing skin for example? You need to be more specific with your goals, so you know exactly what you need to do to achieve what you’re aiming for.
Buying numerous supplements
Many think that taking numerous supplement pills at this time of year is a fast track to better health. It won’t work! Frankly, it’s not only tedious to remember to take handfuls of supplements each day but also, in excess, these nutrients can cause harm. You should only be taking supplements based on your diet, lifestyle and health concerns or symptoms; in other words a personalised approach under the guidance of a health professional, in safe and feasible quantities.
Restricting foods without knowing how to replace them
You may have decided to lose weight and therefore focus on drastically reducing the amount of food you eat, in an attempt to lose those extra pounds. You may have decided to embrace Veganuary and “go vegan”, immediately avoiding all animal-derived foods, without knowing exactly what foods you will be eating instead. In both cases, you are unlikely to sustain these changes and more likely to end up with an unhealthy outcome; frustration and disappointment with likely weight gain in the longer term (including those embarking on a vegan way of eating). Having a better understanding and expert guidance as you make these changes, is much more likely to lead to success.
Veganuary: if you’d like to try “Going Vegan”, let me help
Whether you’re aiming for fully vegan or simply eating more plant based for Veganuary, I’ve put together a realistic, practical and achievable guide that focuses on empowering you to eat vegan or plant-based, intuitively and unscripted so you have more food freedom, confident you’re making great choices for you and your family.
The course is geared to help those who want to make the transition to a vegan or plant based way of eating but want to understand how to safely make this change. I believe that by empowering you to instinctively know what supports your health and what doesn’t… then food can become easy, interesting and a joy again whilst going vegan.
- You’ll have the tools and knowledge to base your meal choice decisions
- You’ll be inspired and motivated to make changes to your eating habits
You’ll start making healthy sustainable choices that fit in with your lifestyle
- You’ll feel energized throughout the day…every day
- You’ll have a better understanding of the conflicting and confusing health messages presented in the media and you’ll debunk limiting myths.
- You’ll improve your gut health and reduce debilitating digestive symptoms like bloating and wind.
- You’ll improve your mood and concentration and regain your “mojo”
- You’ll have over 45 recipes to hand so you can make quick, tasty and nutritious meals
- And finally… you’ll jump off that rollercoaster and banish unhealthy habits once and for all.
In truth, unless you know how to do this, you’ll probably end up making choices that you perceive to be the right ones, when in fact you’re actually sabotaging your efforts.
