12 Baby Steps to Optimal Nutrition
By Kris Gunnars
What works for one person may not work for the next.
When making changes, some people (like me) prefer to go all-in and change everything at the same time.
But others prefer the longer, slower approach… making small changes, one at a time.
Neither approach is better than the other, it’s just that people have different personalities and like to approach lifestyle changes differently.
This article is for those who prefer the longer, slower approach.
It explains how to adopt a healthy, real food based diet in 12 simple, easily manageable steps.
You can do one step per week, one every two weeks, or one per month… whichever suits you. Waiting until you get used to one change before making the next is a good idea.
Whatever you do, you should start seeing results right away, because each step can have a powerful effect.
When you’re done with this, you should have lost a significant amount of weight and improved your health, both physical and mental, in every way imaginable.
Remember… habit puts willpower on autopilot. Changes in lifestyle and behavior can be tough in the beginning, but become effortless when you turn them into a habit.
By mastering one small habit at a time, you will set yourself up for long-term success.
