Ready to start the new year?

January is a great time to start resolutions and here are some tips to help. If you relapse, don't beat yourself up. Simply start the next day, refocused. Remember health is a journey, not a destination.

Here are those tips:

Get some exercise

It can take a lot of physical activity to burn off one moment of weakness - you'd have to run almost 5 miles to cancel out the calories in a Dunkin' Donuts Apple Crumb donut, for example. But even if you can't entirely negate your dietary indiscretions, a little extra cardio is still better than nothing.

"What’s even more important than burning off those calories is that exercise can reduce your appetite and reduce your cravings for additional sugar. Going for a quick walk, adding an extra 15 minutes to your regular afternoon workout, or taking the stairs at lunchtime instead of the elevator, will all help to make a healthy 2015.

Cut carbs at your next meal

This strategy will not only help keep your overall daily calories in check, she says, but it can help keep your blood-sugar levels stable so you’ll stay energized throughout the day.

Drink a glass (or two) of water

You may be tempted to guzzle coffee once you start to feel the effects of your sugar crash, but the buzz you get from caffeine will be short-lived. Instead, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

Have a high-protein snack

No matter how many calories you ingest during a junk-food binge, chances are you'll feel hungry again about two hours later. If you're not due for a meal, satisfy your appetite with a 100- to 200-calorie, high-protein snack. Have an apple with peanut butter, a hard-boiled egg, some Greek yogurt-something that's low in simple sugars that will help you feel full until your next meal.

Stay on your feet

Resist the urge to slump in your chair all afternoon; instead, try to spend as much time standing up as possible. In a 2011 study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showed the majority of people who used a standing desk at work for seven weeks reported that they felt more energized, more focused, and more productive.

Plus, standing will automatically burn off more of those calories than sitting, and a recent Australian study shows that alternating bouts of sitting and standing throughout the day can help lower elevated blood sugar levels, as well.
