With a month into the New Year, we at Stuto Foot Specialist Podiatry are encouraging everyone to continue with their healthy eating lifestyle goals and resolutions. A healthy and nutritious diet provides many benefits to your body and feet.

Benefits of Healthy Eating

  • Healthy eating allows you to maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or obese can severely impact your foot and ankle health.

  • A well-balanced diet combined with exercise helps you shed those extra pounds and makes it easier to move more and sit less. Physical activity can improve your blood circulation throughout your body and helps keep joints flexible.

  • A healthy and nutritious diet keeps your immune system fit and robust. The body needs vitamins and minerals to function properly and effectively. Intake of calcium and vitamin D can help improve your bone health.

Always remain steadfast in pursuit of your goals. Remember, weight loss takes time. Don’t try to change everything all at once; take small steps towards achieving your health goals.

  • Go for a walk regularly and increase your pace gradually.

  • Swap sugary and fizzy drinks with water. Swapping soda for water is an effective way to cut calories, stay hydrated and improve your overall health.

  • Reduce your portion size and try to resist the temptation of second helpings.

  • Add an extra fruit or vegetable to your daily meals.

  • Start with cutting carbs from one meal a day and then progress slowly.

Your lifestyle choices can affect your podiatric health. If you have any questions or concerns about your foot and ankle health, contact the office of Dr. Joseph C. Stuto, Dr. Joseph A.
