March has rolled around once again and you know what that means, it is national nutritionth (1)ion month. This year’s theme is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle.” What better month than March, the month right between winter and spring, to start eating healthy and exercising regularly. As sad as it is to say goodbye to the holiday season, we can also say goodbye to the unhealthy food that comes along with it. Physical Therapists recommend having a healthy lifestyle all year round, but many people tend to fall off track when winter comes along. This is why March is the month to get educated and get your healthy lifestyle back.

Eating healthy and getting the right nutrients not only makes your body healthier but also makes you feel better. Of course eating a fat juicy cheeseburger tastes great, but you usually feel sluggish and tired afterwards.  Consuming the wrong foods takes a toll on your body and can lead to weight problems, poor immune system, and chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Taking in the right nutrients, as well as exercising, give you the energy your body needs to feel great and take on the day.

What can you do to start your healthy lifestyle right now?

Start a daily exercising routine. Make sure it is a realistic exercising routine not one that will lead to injury. Start off slow and work your way up. Also, throw out all the unhealthy foods in your house and replace them with healthy ones. Talking to a nutritionist is a great way to start as well. A nutritionist can lead you in the right direction and tell you exactly what you should and should not be eating.

So, what are you waiting for? Start your new healthy lifestyle today!
