Did you ever feel like your diet plan didn’t “match up” with your eating style? Feeling like your food choices just aren’t working and you’re having trouble sticking to it? I think it’s time to take a closer look at what I call your diet personality.
The good news is that ALL diet plans that trim calories result in weight loss. It’s finding the right one that can be tricky. When you connect with the right eating plan for YOU, it puts the “life” back in lifestyle, and helps you stay on track.
I’ve spent a lot of time figuring this out, and here are some of the most popular diet personalities. Take this quiz to figure out your personal eating style. Your next step is to make small changes, based on the kinds of foods you prefer, as well as when and where you eat. When you can accept the kind of eater you are, it’s a lot easier to develop an eating plan around it. You want to work with not against your natural habits. When it comes to losing weight, one size does not fit all!!
