With so many workout and entertainment options to choose from, it is easy to start a workout routine and stay motivated to keep going. It will make achieving fitness goals for 2020 fun.

Diet Resolutions


It is important to eat foods that will fuel the body, which is why pistachios are a go-to snack. Pistachios can help with weight-loss or fitness goals, as they are high in fiber, protein and healthy fats, thus keeping the longing for food at bay. A one-ounce serving of pistachios equals 49 nuts, which is more per serving than any other nut. Gram for gram, pistachios have as much protein as an egg and they are naturally cholesterol-free and low in saturated fat. Pistachios give the body energy both before and after exercising. At work or at the movies, this grab-and-go snack packs a salty-sweet, satisfying punch with no derailed diets.

Losing weight is the most common, and commonly broken, New Year’s resolution. Caloriecontrol.org is a great website to get facts on healthy eating and strategies for managing weight. Their online Food Calorie Calculator aids in healthier food choices by providing the calorie, protein, carb, fiber and sugar counts for some of your favorite foods and beverages, as well as items from popular restaurants, as well as almost anything you’ll find at a grocery store. Also, find tips on nutrition by registered dietitians as well as tasty recipes using low and no calorie sweeteners instead of sugar. They are a safe and effective way to provide sweetness without the calories to help lose or maintain weight. These low and no-calorie sweeteners are crucial for those managing diabetes, and they don’t cause cavities like traditional sugar. The Calorie Control Council is a great resource.
