SUN VALLEY, Idaho, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "We need a balance between lazy and crazy," says bestselling author and certified nutritional counselor Kathryn Kemp Guylay when describing an approach to keep New Year's resolutions about health and wellness. "Most of us set up eating plans that are too difficult to follow. We then break the 'rules' and end up beating ourselves up. When we fail, we feel defeated, give up, and go back to bad habits." Ninety-two percent of the population does not meet their New Year's goals.
Kemp Guylay proposes a missing ingredient in our process of setting goals for the New Year: fun. "I wrote about the eating habits of high-performing Olympic athletes in Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes (September 2015)." Kemp Guylay learned that Olympians follow simple rules like eating a rainbow of colorful fruits and vegetables and balancing nutrients using a plate. They have fun at mealtimes. So Kemp Guylay came up with fun and positive "rhymes" to help people follow basic healthy eating habits.
Kemp Guylay can answer such question as:
- What are the benefits of eating a rainbow of colorful fruits and veggies?
- How can we remember to choose the right beverages for optimal health?
- How can we remember to eat well by using playful rhymes?
