Drop and Give Me 5 Pounds

By Aries Jones, intern

Is “eating healthier” one of your resolutions for the New Year? Well, you’re not alone! In fact, the act of dieting and exercising is among one of the top ten New Year’s resolutions Americans make every year. This isn’t hard to believe considering the fact that the New Year follows two major holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas. More often than not, on these two days of the year we are surrounded by a buffet of food. The only way to make ourselves feel better about the mouth-watering homemade stuffing and double fudge chocolate cake is participating in shameless healthy eating.

Now when we think of dieting, we make the assumption that we must absolutely avoid carbs and only eat what our friends and relatives in Texas would call “rabbit food”; but this is actually not the case. Dieting can also mean eating better, rather than less. If you’re looking for new and inventive ways to eat healthier, John Bridgman and Amy Bradshaw’s Texas Two-Step Diet is the best way to go!

Texas Two-Step Diet offers many tools that not only guide you in eating right and exercising regularly, but motivates you to stick to your dieting goals. It provides many lists of foods that are healthy alternatives for “junk food,” as well as foods packed with antioxidants—our “health powerhouses.” In addition, the book also gives different recipes that promote a strong and healthy body.

Forget about only dieting for the first few weeks of January (as is often the case with New Year’s resolutions). With Texas Two-Step Diet, you can keep your resolution throughout the year!
