Do you make New Year’s resolutions only to break them a few weeks later? Maybe the problem is that you make too many New Year’s resolutions. Sticking to one or two goals for this New Year is easier to maintain. Or make multitasking goals that kill several problems with one solution. Here’s a plan to accomplish three New Year’s resolutions at once–get healthy, look better, save money all with weight loss.
On Dec. 30, Money Talks News listed New Year’s resolutions to save money and weight loss was right up there. Think about it–you spend a lot less losing weight because you’re buying less food, particularly less junk food. Packaged, processed food is more expensive then fresh, raw foods. You’ll probably go out to eat less, so you’ll save on restaurant tabs. If you cut fast food, you will cut costs in a big way. Fast food restaurants vend some of the most overpriced, unhealthy food on the planet. You’ll probably drink less soda pop and alcohol (or you should if you want faster weight loss) so you spend less on beverages. People who feel better physically look better too.
If you switch from pop and booze to water, you’ll get healthy and save money by the gallon. You’ll look better too–the sugar in soda rots teeth and ruins your complexion. Pop, even sugar-free and caffeine-free, makes you more lethargic. You get sick more quickly and have lowered resistance. Soda is linked to heart disease. Pop packs on the pounds more than any other foods. Booze obviously has a bunch of negative health impacts. Junk food, restaurant, fast food and packaged foods are low nutrient fat boosters. The more processed the less healthy and more expensive foods are. So eating fresh, raw, minimally processed foods does double duty–it helps you get financially healthy as you healthy physically. Weight loss saves money on healthcare, medications, doctor visits, time off work, too.
So weight loss knocks out New Year’s resolutions to save money and get healthy, but it also helps you feel and look better. Carrying extra pounds tires you out and makes you not care about appearance. Obesity leads to hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, poor circulation, sleep apnea, heart and liver problems, back and leg problems. It’s not a matter of if, but when you start these problems. None of those improve appearance, energy level, nor social life. So feel and look better, save money, get healthy in one simple step–weight loss! Now as to sticking to those New Year’s resolutions, here’s a list to help.
