Developing Healthier Habits: How to Build Healthy Habits

In order to create lasting change and sustain your weight loss efforts for a lifetime, you must make healthy living practices habitual. These healthy habits are what will help you avoid regaining the weight you worked so hard to get rid of.

Did you know?

Research shows that it takes approximately 21-66 days to form a new habit.

In order to achieve your definition of success, you need to not only change your lifestyle, but change the way you view health as a whole. To do so, there are 3 things you should focus on improving:

1. Attitude

Research indicates that people who are able to lose weight & maintain their results for a lifetime experienced a change in their overall attitude. These patients successfully embraced new behaviors and learned to look at their journey as a lifestyle, rather than a quick-fix.

2. Self-Image

The perception that you have of yourself is a powerful influence on your decision-making and willpower. Those who practice positive self-talk and learn to appreciate their bodies for what they enable you to do are most likely to successfully conquer roadblocks.

3. Preparedness

Arguably the most important tenant of success is having the proper tools and education to guide you towards reaching your goals.
