Is eating well and exercising regularly part of your resolutions? That will give you energy to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and help reduce the risks of developing certain diseases, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

However, keeping New Year's resolutions can be harder than making them. 

The following tips can help you eat healthier

  • Read food labels to compare and choose healthier foods when shopping. The Nutrition Facts table and the Percent Daily Value can help you make better choices.
  • Limit foods and drinks that are high in calories, fat, sugar, and sodium.
  • Make water the drink of choice and limit sugary drinks, including juice. 

Step your way to increased physical activity. Being physically active doesn't mean you have to run a marathon. Climbing stairs, raking leaves, even walking the dog, it all counts.
