New Year of Eating Right

The new year always brings new resolutions- many of which revolve around health, dieting, and fitness. If you’re looking at losing some weight before the big day you should aim at losing around .5-2 pounds per week and eating between 1,200 and 1,500 calories. Fun fact: 3,500 calories equals one pound so alongside working out you need to eat clean, healthy, and often. Experts say we should be eating at least every 2-3 hours so we stay satisfied (not full) and resist a binge later. Here are some options for a healthy diet plan including recipes.
