Juice Is a Powerful Way to Jumpstart Your New Year's Resolution
January 1, 2014 - Lodi, CA
"What's your New Year's resolution?" will start water cooler conversations around the nation during the next week. Most people will set goals of weight loss or health improvements. The good news is that there is a simple way to work towards both those goals by making an easy yet delicious diet change -- juicing!
Health experts from doctors to dietitians explain that juicing adds variety to our diets while helping us get the necessary nutrients from fruits and vegetables. While juicing can't replace a healthy diet, it is a great power boost for mediocre eating habits. Daily juicing adds whole food nutrients from a variety of fruits and vegetables that you might otherwise not consume.
Many people claim a myriad of health benefits from weight loss to improved health from daily juicing. While research is still lagging there is no question about the benefits of including 4-5 daily servings of fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet. Champion Juicer provides a natural, delicious, and easy start to consume the USDA recommended daily requirements.
Champion Juicer offers some Health and Fitness Tips and Recipes to kick off your New Year:
- Exercise: Walking is a start
Start a new healthy tradition with your friends and family and involve others in your quest for better health. Go for evening walks to relax after dinner or sign up your family/friends for a 5k walk or run.
- Nutrition: Keep it colorful
Start the day with a high protein breakfast and eat sensibly throughout the day. Include at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, the brighter the color the more nutrient dense.
- Charge your immune system: Choose nutrient packed foods
During the holidays our immune system gets run down/overworked. This can be caused by dietary and lifestyle stress, not enough sleep; inflammatory foods and no exercise. Add cinnamon, cloves, and citrus to your juice to boost your immune system.
- Water needs: Flavor water with fruit
Stay hydrated -- drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water each day. Flavor your water with fresh lemon juice or a cinnamon stick to give the water a slight flavor. Juicing adds water and flavor along with extra nutrients.
- Sleep tight: Rest recharges the body
Most people function best on 8 hours of sleep each night. Sleep allows the body to rest, recharge and systems to repair. To relax, try a warm drink early in the evening and turn off electronics.
- Avoid the gimmicks: Try lifestyle changes that can stick
If a diet or pill promises miracles or instant results, it's usually best to avoid the trap. Healthy, safe weight loss, lifestyle and health improvements happen over time. Go for long-term, healthy success.
- Reduce stress: Take frequent mini "vacations"
Take a break each day to clear your mind and relax your body. Try a yoga class, listen to a meditation tape, enjoy a relaxing massage. Close your eyes for 5 minutes and let yourself.
Start your health quest by adding fruit and vegetable juices to your diet. Choose an efficient juicer that can extract the most juice from a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, is easy to assemble and clean, is durable enough to handle professional use, and fits into your budget. Since 1955, the Champion Juicer has been known for its durability and high juice extraction -- setting the gold standard in juicing machines.
