Let’s say you want to make some changes to the way you eat. Perhaps your doctor is threatening meds for that unchecked cholesterol. Or you’ve finally resolved to deal with that leftover baby weight. Maybe you’d like to actually finish that race you signed up for. Whatever the reason, changing your eating habits can be both challenging and overwhelming. How do you even begin to tackle such a feat–especially if it really involves some lifestyle overhaul?
You’ve got to start with where you’re standing…and how did you get here? Your eating habits are very much intertwined with every other aspect of your life, including your upbringing. Nothing occurs in a void. While you could definitely print off some meal plan and dive right in, odds have it you won’t last long and worse, you’ll almost assuredly regain every pound you lost and then some. So instead of adopting some temporary means to a temporary end, why not do a little prep work and change for good?
Where is your starting line?
