Changing how we eat means actually changing how we live. For many food is much more than just a ball of energy. Food is emotional. Food it social. Food calms nerves and solves boredom. That is why MOTIVATION is such a crucial concept.
Studies have show that most people who take on a lifestyle change have a better chance of success when they are not alone. Add a partner and it becomes easier. Add a small group and now it’s social. Create a community and it’s easier, social and much more fun!
