Slim. Fit. Happy.

Here’s your recipe for success: make meaningful changes in your life by making small changes in your behavior. When it comes to diet and exercise, baby steps are the way to go. Drastic diets and depriving yourself of your favorite foods is a recipe for failure, even for someone with incredible willpower.

For most of us, making one or two small changes per week can add up quickly and you will see results faster than you might expect. Little things, like taking the stairs or skipping dessert after dinner, are more manageable when you focus on just doing them one day at a time. Then, the next week, add one more small change, like swapping out your usual afternoon snack for a piece of fruit or veggies. Over time, these small changes become healthy habits and are easier and easier to do.
