A Healthier New Year with Popchips and Jillian Michaels!


As the new year is off to a great beginning, we all resolve to get healthier.  Whether we choose to cut carbohydrates entirely or spend our days consuming nothing but juice, we set ourselves up for failure. So this year, take advice from an expert, celebrity nutritionist and author Jillian Michaels.

Below please find some of her simple rules to help you stick to your diet and shed those unwanted pounds this new year!

1)      Make a resolution…and keep it. Resolutions shouldn’t be something you wait for so this new year, resolve to do it and resolve to start now!

2)      It’s all about balance. Eating three balanced meals (every four hours) with a snack between lunch and dinner is key.  Reach for a healthier snack like carrot sticks and hummus, fresh fruit, or curb salty cravings with tasty snacks such as popchips or almonds and dried cranberries.

3)      Just because it’s not fried, doesn’t mean it’s not delicious!   This holiday season, if you are in the mood to nosh, replace fried potato chips with a healthier alternative that still will satisfy that salty crave.   popchips are a great and my favorite snack option! They taste delicious and have less than half the fat of fried chips and only 100 calories in the single serve bag.

4)      Grab a buddy.  It’s a fact that you will achieve greater success when you have the support of those closest to you.  So get your friends together to support each other in being healthier in 2013.

5)      Create healthier alternatives to your favorite fried foods. Opt for cooking methods that use little or no fat such as steaming, grilling, baking, popping, broiling or roasting.  You can still make these items taste great with the right seasoning!  Have a weakness for fried chicken?  Instead take skinless chicken breast cutlets, cover them in egg whites and a crushed up cereal like cornflakes, and bake.  Same great taste and more than half the calories and fat.

Did you know that Jillian Michaels has a great new book out called Jillian Michaels Slim For Life? I received the book and it’s filled with her insider secrets to simple, fast, and lasting weight loss. I love all the simple to follow helpful tips!
