Muscle and Fitness Logo By Toby Amidor of Muscle and Fitness | Slide 1 of 11

Spring is a time of renewal. So as you start thinking about the ideal beach body or the new weight-room PRs you’ll be working to achieve this season, you’ll also want to think about double-checking your daily nutrition.

After all, it’s normal for New Year’s resolutions to falter a bit by April. Maybe donuts have snuck back into your weekly routine. Maybe you’ve stopped by the local greasy spoon a few too many times, hoping that your winter sweaters will hide the extra size around your waistline.

Because you're already spring-cleaning your house, now is the perfect time to take stock of your kitchen and pantry, too. Make a few of these simple dietary switches, and you’ll find that you can make a ton of progress toward a healthier lifestyle.
