NO not the environmental kind…what does it mean to sustain a new habit.
Definition of sustain is to continue or be prolonged for an extended period or without interruption. If you have heard me talk both in the exercise/nutrition setting OR in the workplace you know I am a stickler for sustainability. If we start it we are going to see it through and we are going to make the necessary changes that are needed to make sure we can do that. There will for sure be a time you forget or something else takes over, but the plan should be robust enough to sustain even when times are hard.
I believe in my core that making a “diet” something that fits into your life so that daily you can get it done. I would love to say always eat good quality non-processed foods with no added sugar, but is that real life for the average American? I want to create a redesign plan that there are only small minimal differences between losing weight and maintaining (i.e. potion sizes)
For SURE I can get anyone to lose weight the wrong way. Eat nothing but meat and fat-free dairy and one time a day you can have ¼ cup of oatmeal. Think you will lose weight if you are an average overweight American…YEP. But after day 10, day 30, or day 60 what happens?
Do 6-week, 30-day, 10-day programs teach enough that once they are done you will be able to sustain without accountability? Maybe they are enough to jump-start you, move you from 0 to 1…
