Year’s resolutions regarding health and wellness is a great
thing to do this week.
Many of us
(me included) make weight loss resolutions – which are good
to make, but hard to follow through with without some kind of structured
program that helps change lifestyle. Many have great results with
Weight Watchers; others like the do it yourself programs like South
Beach. My personal favorite is the Fat Flush Plan. Pick what appeals
to you, but plan ahead and get support.
weight loss, physical health and wellbeing are important goals.
I think health begins with nutrition. Good food choices are important,
and I find that a good core group of supplements also helps. Great
multi-vitamins make you feel good and insure that you are getting
nutrients that may or may not be in your food. I like whole food
vitamins – there are some great formulas now, including stress
reducers, energy boosters, high iron, no iron, etc.
A good multi-vitamin
is not enough – a good omega 3 oil is also a must – it
helps with brain power, cholesterol, joints, skin, immune function
and more. There are good high potency fish oils that are lemon flavored
– meaning there is no fishy aftertaste.
After a multi-vitamin
and an omega 3, there are many choices for what you take to optimize
your health. For the winter season, I recommend a good preventive
formula for wellness – Elderberry Defense has worked great
for us. I also recommend a good probiotic daily for those that are
eating any amount of refined food.
