Resolving your resolutions

Calgary nutritionist Andrea Holwegner suggests we should shift our thoughts on nutrition for 2008. Forty to 45 per cent of adults make one or more resolutions each year. We have good intentions but we often find that our focus fades quickly.

Holwegner suggests simple changes like eating real food — the stuff that grows in the ground, is picked off a tree, or does not come in a package with a list of 30 ingredients with words you can't pronounce — avoiding gourmet cooking shows and focusing on eating better instead of obsessing that each and every meal is nutritionally right.

What nutritional changes have you tried over the years? What has worked for you — and what hasn't?

Over the years I have moved back and forth from being omnivorous to vegetarian many times. What seems to work for me now is 4-5 vegetarian days per week and 2-3 omnivorous days.

The most significant and lasting change I have made in my diet is that I have, over the last few years, consciously shopped for local, organic and unprocessed foods. Not only do I feel good about putting a couple of extra bucks into a real farmer's pocket, I feel better about everything I eat. I hope, as an added benefit, I am consuming food that is fighting, not adding to, the toxicity levels in my body.

I often eat fish and chips and I find that if I only eat 3 pieces of cod it helps to keep the weight off.

What is it about cod?
