We will continue our journey to a Healthy Weight for a Lifetimetoday but before we do I would like to review our steps thus far:
- Have you implemented a food log as a tool to track your progress? Click here for more info on food logs
- Have you identified and built strategies around unconscious eating? Click here for more info on building awareness
- Have you identified “empty calories” and replaced them with nutrient dense foods? Click here for more info on empty calories
- Have you set a foundational eating pattern that will support a healthy weight for a lifetime? Click here for more info on maintaining a healthy weight
Once you have steps 1-4 in place, you are ready to surround yourself with the resources needed to sustain your new healthy habits.
Step 5: Surround yourself with delicious, easily accessible, health enhancing foods.
