Re­fresh Your Whole Life

Better Nutrition - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

If the hol­i­days have left you feel­ing slug­gish, bloated, and maybe even a lit­tle blue ( com­ing down from the hol­i­day high can do this), we have some great ways to rein­vig­o­rate your health, body, beauty rou­tine, and life. And these sug­ges­tions can work for any­one.

One of my fa­vorites is “7 Ways to Re­fresh Your Life” on p. 30. Au­thor Michele Burk­lund, ND, shares her top nat­u­ral tech­niques for win­ter skin­care, cold and fl u pre­ven­tion, and more. Try­ing oil cleans­ing, us­ing warm­ing herbs, and fi lling up on nour­ish­ing soups and win­ter su­per­foods are just a few of her cold- weather health se­crets.

Look­ing for the per­fect weight- loss plan to start off your New Year? Writer Lisa Turner has the scoop on fi ve of to­day’s most pop­u­lar di­ets, in­clud­ing the ke­to­genic diet, Whole30, and in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing. See “Fab Five” on p. 38 to learn about what works and what doesn’t.

Read about an­other diet trend in “The Carb- Cy­cling Trap” on p. 26 by au­thor and ra­dio show host Kat James. Although cur­rently all the rage in diet cir­cles, carb cy­cling is a ques­tion­able prac­tice, ac­cord­ing to James. “The idea of plan­ning weekly carb eat­ing ‘ cy­cles’ is— at least from my decades of per­sonal and ob­ser­va­tional ex­pe­ri­ence— akin to a self- im­posed slip­pery slope that peo­ple con­sis­tently re­gret,” she says.

There’s a lot more packed into the is­sue to help you feel fan­tas­tic, from fi nd­ing cre­ative ways to eat more greens this year to mak­ing easy fruit smooth­ies to en­hanc­ing your ge­netic health with specifi c sup­ple­ments and diet choices.

The New Year is the ideal time to recom­mit to your health and plan pos­i­tive goals for your­self. Wish­ing you the very best for 2019. Happy New Year!
