Do it differently this year, all it takes is a little organisation and structure. HYPOXI recommends these three health habits to make 2017 your healthiest year yet.
Planning is critical to remaining on the healthy path this year. As we have all heard ‘failing to plan is planning to fail’.
How? Take half an hour each week to plan meals. We especially recommend planning for dinners and lunches which take the most preparation. Planning and preparing your own meals results in less temptation to purchase that calorie-laden kebab for lunch. Also, ensure you plan well. When planning for dinners, make enough so you can have it for lunch the next day. This will reduce the output and save you time.
Pressed for time? Get groceries delivered straight to your door by ordering online. Go to any leading supermarket/grocer website and purchase everything on your list after you create your meal plan! Shopping online will not only save you time, it will save you money too. Studies suggest that customers purchase more than they need when surrounded by food options. Simply google your local supermarket now and start ordering!
3 x splurge meals
Not giving yourself permission to eat what you like can be catastrophic. A strained relationship with food and continual guilt over food choices is generally the outcome. As a general rule, commit to 3 meals each week to eat what you like, but ensure they are not consecutive meals. For example, Wednesday night dinner, Friday night dinner and Sunday lunch. As a result, you will be able to enjoy your life, but also stay on track with your health goals.
