The beginning of each year is a natural time for reflection. We’re thinking of what we want to achieve over the next 12 months and how we'll do it. Committing to diet fads and exercise regimes is popular, but why do so many of them fail to last the year? 🤔

Redcliffe Hospital dietitian Anthony believes that a New Years’ resolution should add value to your life and not be a way to punish yourself for enjoying the silly season or restricting yourself from things you love.

“Lots of us think we have to account for all the food and drinks we had over the holidays by going on a diet or restricting ourselves, but it never works," he said.

“To start the year on the right foot, try working on something small and doable. Pick a new recipe to try, experiment with a new ingredient in your cooking, lower your consumption of processed foods.

“All those good, little decisions and changes lead to a healthy, balanced lifestyle and are the best way to approach achieving goals.”

I wasn't allowed to access a dietician last year purely because I couldn't afford to pay. The government is so stingy, only allowing people on so-called allied health care plans only five visits for one reason in any calendar year. If one needs any more so-called help after that, they have to pay full price with no Medicare rebate, even pensioners such as myself.

Anthony is a great adviser. recently met him in December with my diabetic son... very knowledgeable and great advice given. Thank you Anthony.... now what is the ingredients in tomato soup... lol
