On Day 6 of my 30 Days of Clean Eating Series, I wanted to offer some encouragement. Creating healthy eating habits when you have not done it before takes discipline. I know this personally! I am not perfect. I battle with making the right food choices. The key for me is to eat this way 80% – 90% of the time (except during this 30 day challenge). Then treat myself to “cheat” days for fun. And it is fun!
It is said that it takes 3 weeks….21 days…for a create a new habit and sometimes longer, even up to 2 months! If you are new to “Eating Clean”, don’t give up. Stick with it and you will feel great! And if you are trying to lose weight, you will certainly see a change on the scales too.
This is not a diet. This is a lifestyle change. You can do this!
Enjoy these great words of wisdom.
