Weight loss is a real problem because the media have made us believe that everyone is too fat. In the celebrity world you are either too fat to too thin you simply cannot win. Whats wrong with normal, we don’t need to label everything and basically living a healthy active life and eating what you need and drinking in moderation will result in a normal body.

The biggest problem of today is parents being busy and feeding the wrong fast foods to children and then to make matters worse children are spending more time playing computer games than actually being active outdoors and this is getting worse by generation.

So a new years resolution for weight loss should be to think about what you eat and when. Simply do more active things outside that are FREE like going to a local park and walking. Set yourself real goals that your body can achieve and then once you have achieved this you will feel better about your body. Attainable goals are something you can work with and this will result in a more positive mindset.

2. Quit Smoking

For smokers this new years resolution is often considered to be one of the hardest to achieve and this is due to smoking being a habit difficult to break. You can find plenty of products, read books or online and find methods and systems to help you quit smoking but these are never going to work unless you actually want to quit.
