Every January, weight loss tops the charts as the most common New Year’s Resolution. Unfortunately, studies show that 80% of New Year’s Resolutions have failed or been abandoned by the end of February. It does not seem that the general desire to lose weight has been lost; rather, the self-discipline required to best achieve the goal is more often the problem. The behaviors required to lose weight are well-known to most – by decreasing calorie intake and increasing calorie output, we can create a deficit that will cause our body to burn fat and ultimately drop a few pounds. Unfortunately, behavior change can be extremely difficult for humans, and putting the knowledge of how to lose weight into action is challenging. Partnering with a professional may very well be exactly what you need to help you to stay on track. For those in the Dallas area, we are here to help.
