Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
A weight loss plan should be done after you have a understanding of why you eat. Most diet plans ask you to develop your plan first. At this point, most people don’t have enough knowledge to develop a plan.
You must first understand the circumstances that prompt you to eat, and all of the triggers that cue you to eat more, or be inactive, before you are ready to act and develop a weight loss plan.
For more information on how to come up with a Weight Loss Plan check out Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
