Left legs in the air to start the new year off on the right foot. Every year people strive for that one thing that they will set their mind on and achieve. According to Nielson.com, Thirty-seven percent of American consumers set their New Year’s goal as staying fit and eating healthy and 32% strive to lose weight. When the researchers at Nielson Data Analytics Company studied consumers closer in 2014, they found that 43% make a goal to lose weight by eating healthier but 76% said that they did not follow up on their plan or diet program.

According to US News-Health, the best way to follow through with a weight loss goal or dieting plan is to train your brain first. Author of the article “Why 80 percent of New Year’s Resolutions Fail”, Joseph Luciani writes the five steps to complete your goal so that there is no waiting until next year. The first step is “Think Small”- finding simple challenges that you make happen. “Next is Building Self Trust”- Challenging yourself is good but make sure you are prepared and in agreement with that pledge will help you really succeed. The third step is “Invent Challenges”- invent obstacles that will make you stronger and more devoted to complete the goal. Personal success will grow when the effort is put into every action. The fourth step is Cultivating Optimism- everyone experiences negativity whether it is within yourself or from others, your job is to focus on the positive, and, do not let insecurity stop you from seeing positivity. The last step is Develop Critical Awareness- “Living without self-awareness is like driving a car at night with the headlights off. The awareness you shed on destructive habits is your light.

Two thousand nineteen resolutions are full of healthy diets and weight loss goal. Some of the most popular fast-casual chain restaurants are here to help keep you and your diet on track especially when that packed lunch starts to slip.

People that look to adhere to their New Year’s resolutions look no further than Chipotle Mexican Grill. Restaurants such as Chipotle have altered their menus to adapt to popular lifestyle changes. Chipotle decided to add what they like to call “lifestyle bowls” to the menu at the beginning of the year. The bowls include keto, paleo, whole 30, and protein-rich options. The “Lifestyle Bowls” at Chipotle were strategically planned as chipotle makes it easy for dieters to eat healthily, and, the ingredients for each bowl are already laid out.

Panera Bread clean eating motto is shown on their menu with food choices such as black bean soup, power chicken hummus bowl, or Caesar salad. In order to keep up with your goal, it’s essential to look for whole ingredients when ordering from restaurants. At Panera Bread, there are a lot of options with whole grain, vegetables, and lean meats, but just like all restaurants it may take some skill while looking over the menu so that one meal does not break the sodium and calorie bank

Other restaurants such as Subway and Outback Steakhouse have been catering to diet changes since they opened. These restaurants have menus with low-calorie, lean meat, low carb, diet-friendly menu options.

Although eating out is not always an option, there are places to go that can cater to every need.

According to TheKitchn.com, eating at home is healthier and will help perfect your skills in the kitchen. There are many recipes, tips, and tricks to try at home. Kelli Foster wrote an article called “These habits Will Help You Keep 4 of Your New Year’s Resolution in the Kitchen” about habits to keep dieters stuck on their plan and beginner chefs up to date. Foster writes that getting inspired, planning ahead, enjoying grocery shopping, and getting familiar with recipes are key to achieving the goal of cooking often. Also, planning lunches on Sundays, or meal prep, planning for leftovers, and changing things up can help for when you are on the go, one step closer to achieving your goal.

Twenty Nineteen resolutions start off strong but usually go downhill. With the help of TheKitchn.com and restaurants that have decided to support a change. Just remember it all starts mentally and you can do it!
