With 2016 only a few days away, now is the time to start thinking about health goals for the new year.

According to a Nielsen survey for 2015, 37% of people wanted to “stay fit and healthy,” while 32% wanted to “lose weight.” If similar goals hold true for 2016, the time to plan is now.

A recent medical study suggests that “healthy foods” – those which may help you with your New Year’s health resolutions – may vary from person to person. While it is simpler for all to stick to general dietary rules, our bodies are each distinct in how they metabolize and convert the energy in various foods.

One example mentioned in this study is a middle-aged woman whose body reacted to an normally “healthy” food – tomatoes – in a way that was counterproductive to her weight-loss goals. Food intolerances also illustrate how everyday foods which are good for some may be unhealthy for others.

The only foolproof way to find an eating plan that works for you is to work one-on-one with a nutritionist. Developing the right plan for you involves finding the foods that will help you – not hurt you – on your path to wellness.
