Can a High-Fat Diet Help You Meet Your New Year Goals?

One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight; and if you’re aiming to lose weight, the last thing you should be doing is eating fatty foods, right?

Not necessarily!

The good news – research published in leading medical journal The Lancet has shown that adopting a high-fat diet can lead to reduced bodyweight and waist circumference. The bad news – this doesn’t mean you can feast on fish and chips every night.

My New Year’s Resolution that has Reaped Amazing Rewards

The New Year is a time for big change. With a New Year, many look to improve themselves, but sometimes, the real motivation to follow through with a New Year’s Resolution, comes not from helping yourself, but in how you can benefits others. We spoke to children’s author Nicola J Rowley, who told us her story:

At the start of 2016, I made a New Year’s resolution to be kind to others. As with all resolutions, I fully intended to follow it through, and I’m glad to say that in doing so, it has led me down a path, which 12 months ago I never could have imagined.

Ready Yourself for New Year Challenges with Holistic Nutrition

The New Year is the time when most of us want to change for the better, but that can be harder to do when you factor in festive excess, the “Winter Blues” and January 1st coming right at the height of the cold and flu season. Leading Holistic Nutritional therapist Elizabeth Montgomery shares with us her top tips on staying healthy this New Year, and giving yourself the best chance of keeping those challenging New Year's Resolutions.

Movies Provide Inspiration for Life Changing New Year’s Resolutions

With millions of people all across the country using today to come up with the New Year’s Resolutions that encompass all of their hopes and dreams; it seems that most will be drawing inspiration from the nation’s love of movies. Researchers studied 2,000 adults in the UK and revealed the average Briton now watches four films a week on average –  a staggering 208 every year, and according to the report, these films trigger a host of changes in our lives, including around the world trips, changes in careers – even ending relationships.

Increase the Staying Power of Your New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions have a bad reputation – probably because many people have a few thoughts about what they might do and call them resolutions when they are not really resolved at all.

The good news is that research shows that when people make real resolutions, around 40% are still on track 6 months later. That’s probably a higher proportion than most people think.

So how do you give yourself the best chance of being in that 40% who are maintaining or getting closer to their goal?

A Souper Way to Start the New Year

As the hangover from the Christmas season begins to subside, it’s no surprise the nation’s focus is back to wellbeing, with more than half of Brits (54%) planning to eat more healthily. Every year sees Britons embrace a number of health food trends, from spiralizing to sprouting, juicing to fermenting – however the one to pay attention to is ‘souping’, according to research by Knorr.

Nearly Half of Britons Too Unfit to Run for Bus

If your fitness is a concern this New Year, then you are far from alone. Almost half of women (48%) have confessed to being so unfit they would get out of breath running for the bus, according to new statistics released by the British Heart Foundation.

Be More this New Year

The start of a new year is the perfect time for a new you, to be the best you can be; to be more. For some, the turn of another year means yet more colder months, dark mornings and a serious case of the January blues. The Christmas tree comes down as the kids go back to school and the adults go back to work. But January does not need to be a month of low spirits, forgotten resolutions and winter colds; it’s the time to set new goals and reach new heights be it in your career, family life or personal ambitions.
