你的新年大計已經泡湯了嗎?Making Your New Year Resolutions Work

不知不覺,2016已經過了兩個禮拜!新一年開始之際,相信大家都立了一些新年大計吧?大部份人在節日過後,都會立志吃少一點,多做些運動,希望能夠減磅或健康一些。但有一項研究顯示,百份之九十二的新年大計都泡湯!為甚麽呢?因爲大部份定立大計的人都野心太大,而且目標本身太過籠統,沒有系統性的計劃來支持,那當然容易失敗了。以下有幾個建議,可以幫助你把新年計劃有效地付諸實行:

  • 設立自己能力範圍内、較容易達到的目標。
  • 定立一個明確的期限,以達到目標,例如:在12周内減掉6磅,或者在4周内減2磅。
  • 邀請一位朋友或者三五知己一起接受一個健康挑戰(如:4周挑戰或12周挑戰),然後把自己的進度在社交網站上與他們分享(可以用井號打個標簽:#4周挑戰、#12周挑戰)。如果你想趁新年開始嘗試《血型飲食法》,不妨用一個月時間來挑戰自己,把應該避免的主要食物戒掉,然後一個月後看看身體情況如何。你亦可以在Facebook或 Instagram上的貼子加上#eatrighthk 這個標簽,讓我也能參與你的挑戰。
  • 要事半功倍,就要適得其法,我曾經在一個講座裏提過,“卡路里入、卡路里出”這個概念,其實是行不通的,因爲不同血­型的人,在消化和生陳代謝方面都不一樣。要能有效和輕鬆地減磅,最好的方法是先找出你屬於哪個血型,然後戒掉不適合你血型的食物,同時可以盡情進食對你有益的食物(你不會因此而增磅的),那你根本就不會感到好像甚麽都不能吃了!

如果你沒有看過《食得型》的減磅vs增磅食物名單,請看看這篇關於血型飲食法的簡介吧!試下每一個星期把圖片裏右手邊的其中一樣食物剔除,同時改吃左手邊一樣有益食物。如果一星期太短,你也可以自己調節,把一星期變成兩星期或者一個月都行,總之按照你自己能力範圍來設定目標就好。

祝你有一個充實、健康和快樂的2016年!

Two weeks have already gone by since we entered 2016. A new year, a fresh start! I bet some of you have made New Year resolutions to turn over a new leaf. But did you know that 92% of all New Year resolutions fail? With the most common goals being “lose weight” and “stay fit and healthy,” New Year resolutions are prone to fail because the goals are too lofty or vague, and there are no concrete plans attached to them. Here are some ways to increase the chances of success: Make small, manageable goals, such as lose 2 lbs per month.

  • Set up a specific time frame to achieve each goal, e.g. lose 6 lbs in 12 weeks or lose 2 lbs in 4 weeks.
  • Get a buddy or a group of friends to join a “challenge” game and share your progress on social media, e.g. 4-Week Challenge or 12-Week Challenge (use hashtag #4weekchallenge or #12weekchallenge). If you are interested in trying the Blood Type Diet, I challenge you to stay compliant for one month and record any differences in how you feel. Use hastag #eatrighthk on Facebook or Instagram so I can follow your progress.
  • Find the most efficient method for achieving your goal. When it comes to losing weight, I can’t stress enough a truth that I have mentioned in a previous workshop: “Calorie in, calorie out” doesn’t work! This is because people of different blood types metabolize different foods at different rates. To be efficient, you need to find out what your blood type is, stay away from the foods that your type should avoid, and you’ll find losing weight a cinch. The best thing is that you won’t even feel deprived, as you can simply replace the bad foods with beneficial ones.

If you haven’t seen the “Eat Right” food lists before, have a look at them below. Each week, try to eliminate one item from the right-hand column and add one from the left-hand column.
If you need more time to move away from food that you are attached to, go ahead and prolong the week to two or even a month. Make sure you eat lots and lots of beneficial food, as it won’t make you gain weight!

Try the list for a month, and see if it makes any difference in your weight or in your overall health.

Wish you a happy, healthy and fulfilling New Year!
