5 Health-based Resolutions for 2024
Out with the old, in with the new!
A new year is all about a fresh start, marking new beginnings and a time to improve various areas of your life. In 90% of cases, New Year's resolutions are centred on health, with Brits in particular looking to invest their time and money into their health in 2024.
Here at Supply Life, we have put together a list of common health-related resolutions for 2024.
Eat More Protein
Protein plays an important role in our diet. Protein foods are made up of 'building blocks' called amino acids. Amino acids are used by the body for building and repairing muscles and bones, as well as to produce hormones and enzymes. What's more, protein keeps you fuller for longer! Many will be looking to up their protein intake in 2024, which is a wise move! Most individuals require 0.75g of protein per kilo of body weight per day (45g for women and 55g for men).
January is a month when we all feel a bit sluggish and unhealthy. This is why many make a promise to themselves to stick to a robust exercise plan at the beginning of the year. A recent study showed that more than 60% of New Year's resolutions are centred on exercise.
Drink less alcohol
With the Christmas and New Year period renowned for being boozy, most of us like to give our bodies a break from alcohol in January. It is estimated that around 8 million Brits will take part in Dry January in 2024.
As well as taking a pledge to give up alcohol in January, some go one step further when it comes to restricting the food and drink they have in their diet during the first month of the year. In recent years, we have seen a huge increase in the amount of adults partaking in Veganuary. This is a campaign that encourages people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January. While there are many moral advantages to being vegan, there are also numerous health benefits. It is often advised that those on a vegan diet take vitamin B12 supplements.
Take a Food Intolerance Test
Here at Supply Life, we have conducted a great deal of research into attitudes towards gut health. From our research, we expect to see a great deal of interest in home food intolerance tests in 2024. If you would like to take your health into your own hands next year, order your test today!
