Each new year is a clean slate, a time to think about making positive changes, setting goals, and starting anew. Many New Year’s resolutions include improving health through weight loss and exercise. To make 2018 your healthiest year yet, you don’t have to diet. In fact, a healthy eating pattern should not feel like a diet that’s boring and restrictive. You’re more likely to stick to a healthy way of life if your plan is enjoyable, realistic, and fits into your life naturally.
