Why overhaul your diet in a day when you can take small steps over time - and still reach your diet goals!

Are you making bold resolutions on January 1 to "eat right" -- whatever that means? Stop trying to overhaul your entire diet in a day! Resolve to think small and you can reach any diet goal -- one focused step at a time. Why not start with these simple tips?

New Year's Diet Resolution No. 1: Go Slow

Resolving to get more fiber in your diet this year? Maybe more fish or fresh fruit? Any diet change is easier if you take slow, small steps. For example:

  1. Vow to add a piece of produce to your brown bag lunch daily.
  2. Designate a day as fish day.
  3. Package up a single serving of your favorite whole-grain cereal, then treat it as your midmorning snack.

New Year's Diet Resolution No 2: Water, Water, Everywhere

Water: It's cheap, fat-free, and gives your body a quenching boost. Find the idea of eight cups a day daunting? Think small:

  1. Drink one glass first thing in the morning, before you brush your teeth.
  2. Tempted by more soda? Another glass of wine? Drink a cup of water with a splash of your favorite beverage in it first.
  3. Resolve to drink one more cup of water today than you had yesterday.

New Year's Diet Resolution No. 3: Go for the Gold ... and Red ... and Purple

Colorful produce is packed with disease-fighting plant compounds, so when you shop, reach for a rainbow.

  1. Designate a color-a-day. Maybe Mondays are yellow, with grapefruit, golden apples, or corn starring in meals, while Tuesdays are purple with plum and eggplant.
  2. Get the kids involved and go for a theme: Build a green pizza with emerald bell peppers and artichokes, or a red produce-infused chili.
  3. Vary the rainbow -- pick up a new-to-you fruit or veggie the next time you shop.

New Year's Diet Resolution No 4: Tackle Mindless Munching

You're chatting with friends around the dinner table or watching a DVD -- and you just keep nibbling. Try these tips to reign in the munchies:

  1. Pop a stick of gum or a sugar-free mint in your mouth.
  2. Brush or floss your teeth.
  3. Pay attention -- look at each piece of food you plan to eat.
  4. Busy your hands with a glass of water, a cup of tea, or cleaning off the table.
