10 Steps to a Healthier You in the New Year
By Nutritionist Ashley. B Christie

The 5 obvious, you’ve heard them before and they still matter…

Drink enough water
A lot of times you think you are hungry, you are just thirsty; try drinking water first and you can prevent overeating.
How much water should you drink? Take your weight in pounds and divide by 2 to find the amount in oz. per day.
Ex: 120lbs / 2 = 60oz/day a.k.a. ½ gallon, almost 2L, almost 4pints

Get enough sleep

Eat your vegetables
Mom was right. Vegetables of all kinds are just about the healthiest foods you can eat.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day
The first meal of the day is the mot important because it is responsible for breaking your overnight fast. Your breakfast should consist of a protein source and either a carbohydrate or fat, or both, depending on individual factors.

Move your body
Moving more throughout the day will make a healthier version of you
