Success Lies in Habits

My philosophy is that success lies in habits. Choices. Not regimented structure. Think proper portions. Swap outs. Think categories when it comes to food.

Eat more from the veggie category and less from the simple carbohydrate category (as an example).

I love this advice from Dr. Nadolsky,

“Structured meal plans work for short term goals, but in the end, you have to develop certain habits to keep the fat off.”

In order for a habit to stick, it needs to be small, measurable and achievable. Food can be complicated but it doesn’t have to be. Reach out to me if I can help.
