Setting fit & healthy goals for the new year
We’re reaching the end of another year, which means it’s time to start working on your new year’s goals. We all know diet and exercise go hand in hand in reaching your goals but starting a new diet can sometimes feel restrictive if you don’t do it right.
Nuts are often overlooked when planning a new diet, but our premium macadamia products are compatible with most diets. Whether you’re going low-carb, gluten-free, sugar-free, keto, paleo, vegan, or just cutting out that sneaky packet of potato chips, House of Macadamias products can be incorporated into your eating plan.
We’ve set ourselves and our followers five fitness goals for the new year — are you ready to meet the best version of yourself?
- Complete a 12-week program
According to research done in 2020, most people abandon their New Year’s resolutions by February 1st. Committing to a 12-week program ensures that you start your journey at a reasonable pace and don’t suffer from burnout trying to go from 0 – 100 too quickly.
- Meet your calorie and macro target
HOM products make it easy to track and meet your calorie and macro targets, as macadamias are low in carbs, high in monounsaturated fats, and high in protein. Each nutrient dense HOM product also indicates nutrition facts in grams and percentages of recommended daily allowances to make tracking easy.
- Perform 50 push-ups in one go
Push-ups are a fast and effective exercise for building strength, and when done with proper form, they strengthen the lower back and core while working the triceps, pecs, and shoulders. And who doesn’t want to brag that they can do 50 push-ups?
- Perform 20 pull-ups in one go
While push-ups strengthen your core and work your muscles, pull-ups further work your shoulder and arm muscles and improve your grip strength and upper back muscles.
- Increase all lifts by 10%
Strength training is an integral part of any fitness regime, but it’s important not to stay stagnant. For each 10% increase in strength training volume, studies show a 4% reduced risk of injury.
Finally, remember to make snacking part of your wellness routine. Globally we are becoming more aware of the benefits of including the right foods in your diet, so why not choose a superfood that tastes great and is good for you?
