Are you one of the 90% of Australians who will set a new year's resolution to lose weight in 2018?

Well you are in a great place to start.

But if you are looking to invest more money into your health there are some clever products to purchase.

Here are my top 5 gifts you want to get if you want to lose weight and get healthy in 2018!



 Training shoes  

whether you can run or just plod along everyone needs a great pair of running shoes to help motivate you to hit the ground running in the new year.

If you want to add a bounce to your step in 2018 then A pair of cushioned colourful joggers will do the trick and may even help you step out a few more steps.

It’s recommended to do approx. 10,000 steps a day so this is a great way to get you started.




 Fitness tracker 

no better way to count out those 10,000 steps and track your progress then with a good fitness-tracking device.

They are so advanced now they track everything from steps to how well you sleep to the number of calories you eat. 

Which is important as research has shown that people who are overweight underestimate the number of calories they eat by up to 40%. 

Plus, monitor how long and how well you’ve been sleeping (YES!) and can even receive texts and calls at a glance when you’re on the move.

Oh, and did we mention it’s water resistant?!






 Cooking Appliance 

No not the old toaster or vacuum!

My favourite cooking device is the George Forman griller as its really easy to use and sucks all the bad fats out of the food for you.

Rain, hail or shine, the George Foreman® Indoor/Outdoor BBQ Grill will ensure that you are able to cook up a barbeque feast no matter what Mother nature has in mind.

With its indoor/outdoor feature, the BBQ grill easily removes from the base and can safely be operated on your kitchen bench.



 Zombie Hot Sauce kit 

Make his taste buds feel like a zombie’s when you get him this hot sauce gift set.

This is a tasty sauce set that will push the boundaries on how hot a hot sauce should be. If he loves the heat he’s sure to love trying out all four different sauces. 

What’s more, eating spicy foods may help you live longer, too, according to Chinese research.

Capsaicin may actually help regulate your metabolism and cardiovascular function—all good things when it comes to warding off heart disease and diabetes.


 Resistance Band  

My favourite piece of exercise equipment, the resistance band allows you to work out anywhere and anytime.

So  no need for a gym membership that you probably wont use anyway,

with stats showing that nearly 80% of people who buy a gym membership don’t actually go,

so don’t be a statistic in 2018.


Not sure how to use a resistance band?

Well simply go on line and there’s literally hundreds of great exercises to give you a full body workout without any unnecessary impact on your body.
