Resolutions are on the horizon. Many people have big goals for reaching health and fitness goals next year.

But, the gyms will be just as empty and the snacks will be just as tempting a few weeks into the year. How can you avoid those pitfalls and stay on track?

Set realistic expectations. Pick one thing and make it part of your lifestyle. Can you add 15 minutes of activity per day now? A few short bursts of exercise during the day will add up.

Weight loss is more than calories in and calories out. You have to find the balance in your life. Watch your carb intake. Cut your starches in half if you’re consuming too much.

It’s harder to lose weight as you get older. Focus on gaining lean mass. Increase the number of vegetables you consume each day.

Convenience seems to be king of our diets. Learn simple ways to prepare your own food so you get more nutritious meals.

Listen as Dr. James LaValle joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share how you can reach your health and fitness goals by the end of next year.
