FOCUS ON SMALL CHANGES
It’s not the occasional burger or chocolate that ruins your diet — it’s your daily routine that manages your weight over the long term.
Too often we overcommit ourselves to unreasonable goals. We expect to lose weight in a week. We plan to exercise for hours on top of our work and family commitments. Plus we want to enjoy a buzzing social life, and to prepare restaurant-style dinners and make nutritionally balanced lunches for the following day. No wonder we fail — we set ourselves up for it!
Imagine if you could add just one or two positive health changes to your day — like snacking on veg, or keeping your dinner small — and you could feel just as good and be losing weight at the same time.
The good news is you can. While allocating some time and energy to losing weight will help get you started, the general rule of weight loss is to only adopt changes that realistically fit into your life. Sustaining these small changes over the long term adds up — and so will your weight loss.
