So many Americans are setting New Year’s Resolutions.
The reality is that 80% of New Year’s resolutions will fail by February and the failure rate jumps up to 92% a few weeks later.
So if 92% of resolutions fail, what is it that the other 8% are doing right?
Jessika Brown, the Director of Nutrition at Dietitians ABQ works with clients on shifting perspective to what they are adding.
So many of the weight loss New Year’s resolutions are surrounded by diet elimination.
“I am going to cut our gluten.”
“I’m going to eliminate dairy or process carbs.”
While there can be benefits from any dietary change, Brown says the perspective is all wrong.
The 8 percent of people who successfully keep their New Year’s resolutions are looking at what they are adding to their diet and exercise routine, not what they are taking away.
Brown recommends working on adding food groups before taking others away.
For example, add fruits and veggies before you try to take out things like processed carbs or sugar.
