Is your New Year's resolution to eat a more balanced diet? How about exercising more? Resolutions don't have to be daunting and impossible to stick to! With a little motivation from the ZeroCarb LYFE community and knowledge on healthy habits, eating a balanced diet and creating a healthier LYFE-style is within your reach.
When thinking of your goals going into 2023, it's crucial to start off with proper goal setting. Think of it this way - you wouldn't wake up and run a marathon with no training. Similarly, you cannot maintain a complete LYFE-style transformation overnight. Start small and write down your goals in the SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely) format to help you visualize actionable steps. Try putting your SMART goals on your refrigerator or somewhere you will see them daily, especially when cooking!
We all know New Year’s Resolutions are commonly abandoned within a month or two, but we don’t want that to be you! A major cause of the burnout and loss of motivation is due to people setting unrealistic goals with no steps to achieve them. As well as, making too many unsustainable changes in a short amount of time. That’s not happening to you this year! To avoid burnout, try having an accountability partner to share healthy recipes and accomplishments (even the smallest accomplishments add up!).
Now that you have defined your goals, it’s time to find foods and recipes that fit into your new lifestyle. A great way to start is by meal planning! Mapping out meals ahead of time motivates you to purchase healthier groceries, and in turn, cook balanced meals. If you have a habit of grabbing fast food every day for lunch or dinner, meal planning is a sure-fire way to achieve your goals and save money. Maybe one of your goals is to reduce your carb intake, which can decrease your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Reducing your carb intake has never been easier with ZeroCarb LYFE crusts! Keep your freezer stocked with our pizza crusts, and we guarantee you will have many healthy, creative, and mouthwatering meals in your weekly meal plan.
We believe it’s much easier to stick to your goals when you have support than trying to do it all on your own. If you need some moral support for your new lifestyle (we get it, but not everyone does), we’re happy to invite you to join the #ZeroCarbLYFE movement by signing up for our newsletter and getting involved in the conversation. To hear about more real-LYFE stories and experiences with a low-carb eating plan, you can find us on Facebook and Instagram, and follow along with our inspirational blog posts (like this one!).
We’re here through thick and thin (literally!), and we want to hang out and cheer you on in the weeks and months ahead. If you have a ZeroCarb LYFE story of your own, we’d love for you to share it with us!
