Best & Worst Resolutions
For Your Diet
Best Resolution: To make a healthier grocery list.
To help maintain weight and ward off illness, "stock your fridge with plenty of fibrous, vitamin- and antioxidant-rich colored vegetables and fruits," says Wahida Karmally, DrPH, RD, director of nutrition at the Irving Center for Clinical Research at Columbia University Medical Center.
Worst Resolution: To purchase foods just because the label reads "organic."
"While they are better for the earth, they're often no more nutritious than nonorganic items," says Karmally. "All it means is, they were exposed to fewer pesticides and chemicals."
