A new year is often a time when we rethink our eating habits and try to make smart changes to our diet. But sometimes taking an extreme view of dieting can quickly become overwhelming and, before long, our resolutions end up in the rear-view mirror.
Whatever your individual goals may be, it’s important to cut yourself some slack if you stumble or feel like giving up. Just remember that it’s never too late to stick to (or restart) your resolutions. And even if you are on a restrictive diet like keto, Nunbelievable is here to help you stay on track without sacrificing an occasional sweet treat.
Our low-carb cookies are the perfect snack for any eating plan you might be following. Each serving contains just 4 grams of carbohydrates, zero added sugars, and only 50 calories. They’re also gluten free, for those who have celiac disease, and arediabetes friendly. Best of all, they come infour delicious varieties: chocolate chip, pecan sandy, snickerdoodle and double chocolate chip. (Need more incentive: Don’t forget that for every sale we make, we donate meals to one of our impact partners inthe fight against hunger.)
And you don’t have to take our word for it: We’ve also gotten a lot of love from influencers on social media, including Caroline Levens of the popular Instagram accountCaroline’s Keto Kitchen. “After I tried them I was in pure cookie shock,”she wroteof our low-carb treats. “It’s really rare keto products blow me away… the cookies are bigger than other brands’ mini keto cookies, crispier and slightly less sweet (which I actually found favorable, even though I like things on the sweet side.)”
Our low-carb cookies are a great incentive for staying on track. Here are a few helpful tips for keeping on top of your New Year's resolutions:
- Big Goals, Small Steps — Set ambitious targets for yourself (how many pounds you want to lose, how much money you want to save, how many books you want to read, etc.), but break your goal down into smaller targets. If your overall aim is to lose 30 pounds, it might feel more attainable to try dropping 3 pounds a month. It’s helpful to start any resolution or lifestyle change with a carefully planned strategy to keep yourself from feeling overwhelmed or discouraged.
- Hold Yourself Accountable — Whether it’s relying on yourself to track your progress in private or enlisting friends and family to help keep you honest, it’s important to take a realistic look at what’s working — and what isn’t. There’s no need to beat yourself up when you slip up (it happens to everyone!), just keep track of what went wrong and try to understand the reasons why. Be honest with yourself, but remember to be self-compassionate as well.
- Study Your Own History — If this isn’t the first time you’ve made this same resolution, take stock of what has worked in the past, and what hasn’t. Did you try to do too much too quickly? Not enough? Were you too hard on yourself when you fell short of your goals? This could be a good time to ask a close friend or family member to offer some (gentle) insight into their observations.
One more key thing:It’s always a good idea to consult with your doctor or a trained nutrition professional before starting a diet or eating plan.
