The new year is here, and congratulations! The fact that you are reading this article means that you are one step closer to a healthier life. Here are the basics to starting off 2015 as a healthier, new you.

Determine goals

Before you can start working out, you have to set goals to steer your workouts.  Is your goal weight loss?  Is your goal muscle gain? By determining your goals, you'll know where to start; finding calorie counters, finding meal plans, stocking up on marathon supplements, etc.

Reduce fatty food intake

While certain fats are essential, not all fats are good.  Fatty foods are among the highest in calories, which can loose to undesirable weight gain.  Additionally, foods heavy in bad fats can increase LDL (bad cholesterol) in your blood circulation and cause plaque deposition within your blood vessels. Once enough deposition occurs, a blood clot may form and predisposes an individual to stroke and ischemic heart attacks.  Add more years to your life by reducing fatty food consumption.

Exercise more

We get it.  The day-to-day grind keeps you busy.  Sometimes you can't hit the gym for as long as you'd like, so sometimes you don't go at all.  That's no excuse to not get in at least some exercising.

Even basic aerobic exercising can increase cardiovascular health, strengthen muscles and bones, and reduce fat.  A brief job in the morning or few minutes on the treadmill can make a big difference over time.  There's no excuse.  Exercise more.

Keep yourself busy

Keeping yourself busy is one of the keys in reducing caloric intake by avoiding “boredom” or comfort eating. When we are busy, our mind shifts its attention from fulfilling our hunger to fulfilling a task at hand. Boredom greatly increases the susceptibility of the mind to pay unnecessarily more attention to human basics, like food.

Avoid the late night chow

Eating late at night when your body's metabolism has slowed down can increase the chances of accumulating fat. Normally, the food that we eat is transformed into energy and burned off.  At night, our body has slowed its metabolism, and our activities are less intense, so fewer calories are burned off. In this scenario of slower metabolism, our body converts food into fat instead of energy.
