Sensible Nutrition Tips

When making changes to your diet, remember to start gradually. Some of the smallest changes will provide the LARGEST results. Things can seem completely overwhelming and at that point, most people are likely to give up. Each week, make a list of 1-2 things you want to focus on for the next week and focus solely on them. After the first week, evaluate how you feel about the changes, do you need to spend more time incorporating the plan, if so, stick to this for another week. If you feel success was achieved, then make a set of 1-2 new goals.  18974012_s
