Take a look at what your diet and health have been like for the last 12 months. Think about these questions and write down your answers in a notebook so that you can look back at them again a year from now:

  • How does your weight compare with a year ago? 
  • Do you feel healthy and have a lot of energy or are you tired all the time?
  • Do you take vitamins or other nutritional supplements?
  • Do you eat at home most of the time? If so, what types of foods? Whole fresh foods, boxed foods or TV dinners?
  • Do you dine out frequently? What types of restaurants do you like and what types of foods do you choose?
  • How physically active are you? Do you exercise regularly?
  • Do you eat normal portions, or do you stuff yourself with every meal?
  • Do you smoke?
  • How much alcohol do you drink each week?
It's important to take an honest look at your health and dietary habits so you can set goals for the next year.
