Healthy New Year
As the clock strikes midnight on December 31, millions of people make nutritional New Year's resolutions: eat less, exercise more, cut back on sweets, etc. But few, if any, of these resolutions that revolve around nutrition are still in place by the end of January.
This year, resolve not to resolve. Instead, make generalized lifestyle changes, not specific health resolutions. Dr. Allen S. Josephs, a practicing, board-certified neurologist and physician of internal medicine, offers his recommendations for a healthy new year. Below are Dr. Josephs' new twists on the old resolutions, along with a few new ideas to boost one's nutritional health and well-being this year, whether you're preparing for pregnancy or a new mom.
