Research shows that the average time span of new year's resolutions staying in effect is 12 days; that's it....12 days!! We all have good intentions, right?! We also all have a million things going on and our health gets overlooked. Being in the capacity of a truck driver makes it even more difficult to adhere to healthy choices without careful planning and prepping.
Here are 4 simple swaps to cut calories, fat and sugar:
Water instead of soda. Try flavoring the water with cut up fresh fruit or a flavor packet, staying away from ones containing artificial sweeteners; here is one example.
Protein bar instead of a candy bar. You will still satisfy your sweet craving plus get added nutrients!
Fruit in place of sweets.
Air popped popcorn in place of chips. Hold the butter of course, but try a seasoning such as ranch on the popcorn.
Making small changes adds up. Start by trying to do one swap one day a week and then build on that!
