Write It Down
Now is a great time to start a food journal for keeping track of calories during the busy holiday season. Record your meals daily to stay on target with your goals.

Challenge yourself to try new flavor combinations this fall, like sliced pears served with Sargento Sharp Cheddar Natural Cheese Sticks.

Write it, Repeat it, Celebrate it
Celebrate every time you reach a goal, reinforcing your achievement with positive feedback and helping your brain associate the habit with a good feeling.
Win with Simple Habits
Start with simple habits, racking up a series of small wins to fuel your motivation for bigger goals. For example, optimize your protein intake by keeping Sargento Natural Cheese Snacks on hand.
SHAPE Rock Your Resolution Nutrition Coach
Practicing healthy habits is always top of mind for Dr. Mike Roussell! He is a nutritional consultant, author, and founder of Naked Nutrition, LLC which provides health and nutrition solutions to consumers.
Any Movement Counts
Whatever you’re doing, move your body! Doing squats while chatting on the phone or dancing while you get dressed are fun ways to keep your body active. Be sure to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs with one of my favorites snacks: Sargento Colby Jack Natural Cheese Sticks with 5g of protein each.
Track Your Progress
Use a tracking device app or calendar to record your workouts and help monitor your progress. Tracking workouts gives you a sense of accomplishment and motivates you to work harder.
