I know that you want to get healthy this year, because it's the most popular New Year's resolution. Plenty of people want to help you, too, with everything from diet tips to exercise suggestions. They will tell you to make some lifestyle changes, to download a new app or even to buy a wearable fitness tracker (those probably don't work, by the way).

If you want to be remotely healthy, don't eat junk food. It's that simple. Because it's really not worth it (oh but it is, sometimes) when you try to burn off all those bad kilojoules you just ate. Think about the exercise! Think about the weights! Think about the cardio! Think about all that when you're about to eat a Big Mac and Fries because you need about an hour and a half of cardio or two hours of weights to whip that out your system.
