The number one New Year’s resolution made is “lose weight,” followed closely by “get into shape.” There’s no age limit on wanting to look good and staying fit. Diet and exercise are both equal opportunity endeavors. Men and women , young, old, or somewhere in between are all welcome to join the millions eating less and exercising more in pursuit of looking better and staying fit. The first step in a healthy diet and exercise program is usually determining what kind of diet to use.
There are a lot of choices. You can choose a diet that requires you to count calories, carbohydrates, or fat grams. You can choose one that includes a number system that makes counting calories, carbohydrates, or fat grams easier or simpler. You can choose a diet where food is sent to you weekly or monthly already prepared and in the correct serving size. Diet plans are different, but the commonality of going on a diet for the purpose of losing weight and staying fit is that each and every individual should secure the blessing (and possibly the advice) of their personal physician before starting the diet plan.

Stress is our nonspecific response pressures and demands we encounter daily. It wears on our body and eventually, if left untreated, defeats our desire for staying healthy. Stress is the result of a person’s inability to cope with whatever occurs in his or her life. Therefore, staying healthy requires our reducing our negative responses to the stress in our life.
