It's that time again, the time when most people resolve to eat healthier and get in shape. But, making a resolution and keeping it are two different things. Too many folks find themselves breaking their resolutions to eat healthier on January 2nd, and then they simply give-up. If you are one of these people, don't despair, there is help! Here are ten websites than can assist and provide encouragement during your journey to healthier eating.

10 Top Websites for Healthy Eating

CookingLight.com

When you navigate to this page you will notice a tab for 'Healthy living,' in this section you will find several articles regarding health and fitness. From foods to exercise, if it has to do with health, you will find it. In addition to the articles there are additional tabs for specific information on 'Fitness,' 'Health,' 'Healthy Habits,' and 'Travel.' There's also a section called "Cooking Light's 12 Healthy Habits Program" and here you can find tips and recipes to aid in your healthy lifestyle endeavor. The thing I did not care for were the pop-up ads each time I clicked on a tab.

EatingWell.com

Here you will find the following sections to assist with a healthy lifestyle; 'Quick Healthy Recipes,' 'Diet & Nutrition,' 'Healthy Cooking,' 'Diet Challenge,' and 'Food & Health News.' Articles such as "28 Days to a Slimmer You," "10 Tips to Make Losing Weight Easier" and "Our Best Diet Recipes" provide assistance and motivation.  Also, a featured piece called "Dinner Tonight - Cheddar-Stuffed Mini Meatloaves with Chipotle Glaze" sounds delicious, if it is as good as it sounds, this may be one of my "go to" sites for healthy meal ideas.

Shape.com

This webpage by Shape Magazine provides helpful information about fitness, healthy eating, weight loss, lifestyle, celebrities and bride. One thing I didn't care for were the advertising pop-ups, but they were easily closed and only a minor nescience. The weight loss section includes "What's Hot in Weight Loss" with interesting articles such as "Are You Eating Too Many Healthy Fats?;" "The 6 Stages of Weight-Loss Grief;" "30 Easy Ways to Burn 100+ Calories;" "The Newest Miracle Food for Weight Loss;" and the "Top 50 Winter Foods for Weight Loss." You can also read inspirational weight loss success stories and how people are keeping the weight off.

This webpage includes healthy recipes for "Chicken, 22 Ways." You will find so much information on healthy eating, including "Good-For-You-Appetizers," soups and stews, and much, much more!
