2020 TRANSFORMATION - 3 BASIC RULES:

  1. MAKE A PLAN.

Create a plan that you can easily follow to help you stick to this new eating lifestyle. For example, “meal prepping” (preparing and prepackaging meals & snacks in advance), has been a highly effective way to help plan what you eat to avoid falling into the trap of grabbing convenience foods (which are high in sugar, fat & salt)

 

  1. JUST DO IT.

DON’T WAIT to just start on the new plan! Have a “RIGHT NOW Resolution” to avoid waiting until the beginning of a week, a month or even a year to begin your healthy habits!

 

  1. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS.

When you track your progress, you are more likely to stick to your plan! We suggest tracking your progress by measuring body weight and/or taking progress photos.
