About this course
For most people losing weight is a challenge; keeping it off, an even bigger challenge.
Diet programs usually ask you to do two things: change what you're eating and eat less. As long as you are motivated to follow the plan, you will likely lose weight.The problem is most people don't possess an endless supply of motivation.Eventually meals become a little larger, workouts are missed, and…well, you know the rest of the story.I have a lot of empathy for this scenario because I know how hard it’s been to change my own eating habits.
I have some good news for you though -- making genuine sustainable improvements to your diet IS possible .
I put this video together utilizing the latest peer-reviewed nutrition research along with some forward-thinking behavioral and psychological principles to help you in the process. Will your diet ever be "perfect?"First, let's try to let go of the idea of perfection, and embrace the idea of making consistent improvements to your diet. This video will teach you fundamental concepts that will improve how you eat and will gently nudge you in the direction of eating in a manner that supports good health. In short, this isn't a “diet” but a series of ideas that should work for anyone interested in improving this part of their life.
While the information presented here CAN help you lose weight, it should be understood that achieving and maintaining an ideal weight only happens when you make better food choices.
My goal is to show you how to do that in a sustainable way.
SPECIAL NOTE: The video is just 40 minutes long and has an accompanying 6-page PDF .
I encourage you to print the PDF and complete it while watching. I think you will find that writing things down serves both to focus your attention and help retention.
