Hi and welcome to this New Year’s edition of Toward A Better Life… "New Year Nutrition". This is your host Kevin Pennell. Resolutions… yep the cliche for the New Year. They typically last for a few days to a few months. Doing some brief research identifies The Statista Global Consumer Survey conducting a survey involving several adults between the ages of 18 and 89. The number one resolution for 2023 from the participants revealed 52% desiring to exercise more and number two, at 50% desire to eat healthier followed by losing weight at 40%. Health News states “These three connect to the ongoing obesity crisis in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the prevalence of obesity in the U.S. was 41.9% as of March 2020.” Good Housekeeping says, “If living through a global pandemic has taught us anything, it's that we shouldn't take health and wellness for granted. In 2023, improving your body, mind and soul is a great way to organize your long-term goals for the new year.” So, maybe we should think of improving and sustaining a healthier lifestyle in 2023 with those lifestyle choices to include our nutritional choices. When we think of nutrition we may think about what we eat to feel better, to lose weight, or maybe fill an emotional void. Registered Holistic Nutritionist Amanda Love explores those areas that focus on the physical and emotional aspects of nutrition in her practice, her online cooking classes, and her podcast.
