Forget making New Year’s resolutions. With the New Year upon us, it is very easy to say things like, “This year, I will lose 20 kg” or “This year, I will quit smoking” or “This year, I am going to exercise more.” Instead of making promises to yourself that you can’t keep, why not start or continue the good habits that will lead you to accomplishing your goals.
The one thing that has been consistent in my practice as a dietician is watching how my clients start out with the best of intentions only to give up 3 weeks into the process.
