02.15.16 Restarting Your New Year's Health Kick

By  | 

WACO (February 15,2016) 1 in 3 people ditch their New Year's resolutions by the end of January, according to a Nielsen survey. By February, the statistics are even worse. Baylor professor and nutritionist doctor Janelle Walter stopped by to help those who have already abandoned their goal to get back on track.

Here are some of Dr. Walter's tips:

-Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.

-People commonly mistake hunger for thirst, which is why it is important to stay well-hydrated with a variety of beverages.

-While water is a great choice to stay hydrated, sometimes it just doesn’t do. Low- and no-calorie beverages can be a great option with few, if any, calories – and studies show they can be an effective tool as part of an overall weight loss or weight management program.

-Counting calories can be important for weight loss, but so are other habits like getting enough sleep or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
