5 Health Basics to Kickoff a Vibrant 2011

 With the New Year upon us, I thought it would be good to hit the reset button and review some basic habits that can have a major impact on your life in 2011 and all the years to follow.

There are many schools of thought and philosophies when it comes to the best path to health and wellness, but there is general agreement across the medical, nutritional and physiologic boards about the basic principles which have been studied and validated.

#1. Whole foods: A good diet should contain whole foods and as few processed foods as possible. Whole foods are those foods that arrive at your table the way Mother Nature intended; whole fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, beans, etc. A good rule of thumb is to pose the question, “Would a grocery shopper from 100 years ago recognize this as food”?

This results in not only a sharp rise and fall in energy levels, but an internal reaction that essentially tells your body to “stop burning fat.” Eating a high protein breakfast has been shown to eliminate mid-morning hunger, increases mental stamina and creativity, promotes lean muscle mass that keeps the metabolism running efficiently and reduces nighttime cravings that often lead to weight gain. For more information simply search on the term “breakfast” on this site for a host of added detail.

#3. Protein Intake: We need a good clean source of pr...
