Even for those of us who say we don't make New Year's resolutions, there is still a common feeling at this time of year that we can make a new start and start new health habits – especially when it comes to food and exercise. I know that my husband and I are personally recommitting ourselves to eating better and getting more active. We actually started to ramp this up the day after Christmas – kind of a running start to the New Year!
If you're planning to lose some weight and eat better this year, cooking your own meals (in my opinion) is the best way to do it. That way you control exactly what is going into your meals and subsequently exactly what is going into your body. You're also able to modify your meals to fit what you like to eat and how you like to eat it.
To help you get a healthy start, we have rounded up the top 8 weight loss cookbooks for the new year.
