New Year. New Nutrition Goals.

Authored by Dr. Sommer Ebdlahad. January 20, 2021

New year, new nutrition goals! My 2021 New Years Resolution is to eat a healthier diet and limit the number of processed foods and artificial sweeteners I consume. In establishing a nutrition philosophy versus committing to a strict diet it will set me up for sustainable success.

To achieve this resolution, I am committing myself to ‘eating the rainbow’, reducing processed foods and artificial sweeteners, and doing this in an evenly spaced out manner – three to four meals, hitting all aspects of the food pyramid. When I say “eat the rainbow,” I mean eating a variety of different food groups, consisting of fruits and vegetables, and natural foods. To accomplish this, I am going to limit the amount of artificial and processed foods that I consume, and focus on a well-balanced diet. But this doesn’t mean cutting out all “unhealthy” foods altogether.

A great diet consists of balance. If you fuel your body with mostly natural and organic food, and have the occasional sweet treat, that is a sign of sustainable success. When people try to completely cut out the foods that they love because they are deemed unhealthy, they start following a stricter diet, which can lead to binging and falling off these health changes much more easily.
