Diet Goals

Your diet goals must be doable! You might start with a dream of losing 50 to 100 pounds, but you must plan a path to get there that includes actions that are attainable!

At the start of each New Year, the first or second most common resolution is to lose weight! Most people will fail to reach their dream, because it was never broken down into doable actions. It was an idea only!


Diet Goal Process and Tips from Healthy Diet Habits


The easiest way to accomplish diet goals is to break it down into tiny goals that can be attained and celebrated along the way. This process will keep you excited, and on the path to your dream. Start with your goal of the year, break it down into monthly goals, weekly goals, and then devise healthy diet habit action steps to meet that small weekly goal. Doable!

The beauty of the equation is that if you continually reach your weekly goals, you will ultimately reach your yearly goal.

These steps are all simple things that I can easily accomplish each week. I will not be overwhelmed, or need to change my entire life. I can cook great meals for my family that are healthy. We will all benefit!

Many of you fail to develop personal healthy diet habits to meet your weekly goals. There are many reasons for this. You might not understand your personal history with foodfood triggersportion control, or your specific unhealthy diet habits.

You may need to keep a food journal, or simply use your cell phone to capture all of the food that you eat during a week. Examine what you really do. Devise some simple action steps to follow.

It is overwhelming to have a diet goal of losing 50 pounds, but it is possible to lose one pound per week with doable actions! The end payoff of weight loss is worth taking the time to set these healthy diet habits in place this year!
