Melissa Kirdzik ’01, owner of Eat to Live nutrition counseling, has tips for keeping your New Year’s diet resolution:

Set specific, measurable goals: “100 oz. daily water” as opposed to “increase fluids.”

Be accountable: Check in with a registered dietitian, personal trainer, therapist, best friend, etc.

Picture yourself at your final goal. Positive feelings should come not only when you reach it, but throughout the journey.

Melissa hired Jason Oliveria ’01, M.S. ’04 to help her serve clients at her Newport-based company.
