As December comes to an end, it is time to start thinking about your resolutions for the New Year. Most of us want to make positive lifestyle changes, especially after indulging during the holiday season. To help reach your resolutions and personal goals to stay on track and live a healthy lifestyle, here are some tips for success.
It is a good idea to eat well-balanced, healthy small meals every three to four hours to keep your metabolism leveled. If you skip a meal, this can slow down your metabolism and have the opposite effect you hope to achieve. Skipping a meal won’t accelerate weight loss, it can actually cause you to be hungrier, so you overeat. Also, eating too few calories can put your body into starvation mode which causes your body to hold on to the calories instead of getting rid of them. We recommend carrying these small snacks with you on the go in our Fitmark The Shield meal prep bag. This bag is functional and the perfect size to help change your habits to healthier ones.
Eating processed foods, like energy bars, is an easy option for those on-the-go, but these foods are often loaded with extra sugars and unrecognizable ingredients that you can’t even pronounce. Healthier options are whole, fresh, natural foods that you don’t buy in a box or in packaging. You can try making your own energy bars or trail mix, full of the best ingredients that you choose and then pack to have with you at any time. There are great options for healthy energy snacks to take with you on the go.
To help with some of these tips, let Fitmark Bags come to your rescue. You can achieve optimum health easily when you avoid unhealthy foods and have healthy food options when you are on the go.
If you purchase a Fitmark Bag before December 31st, you can get a free holiday gift, a Drawstring Backpack ($14.99 value) for orders over $50.
