Next week I will be sharing the next Bite Sized Podcast with Laura Clark, dietician extraordinaire. Where we discuss how looking at your nutirtion in the same way you tackle your work could be the answer to building healthy habits that last. Subscribe here to get the episode as soon as it comes out. 

This month you:

·  Learned more about how to find delight in your healthy habits

·  Were inspired by Shelia's story on how to shift the last few pounds without dieting

·  And started to build a kindness habit that supports your long term health goals

Top 5 research insights on building healthy habits that last

We also shared some key research insights to help support your healthy habits:

  1. Habit change: Instead of trying to get rid of an old habit, can you replace it with a new healthier habit instead? Research shows the more we try to resist something the more its likely to persist. So instead of fighting and resisting a bad habit, can you do one small thing in its place?
  2. What/how to eat: A straight talking non nonsense approach to all you ever needed to know about specific diets, what is most effective nutritionally and the evidence to back this up.
  3. Dieting = weight gain: Great research supporting the fact that we should give up dieting as it is ineffective and ultimately leads to weight gain.  The researchers found that having normal eating habits where you don’t feel deprived or restricted is what is key to long term success. Yay!
  4. How to resist temptation: This article lists some key actionable, evidence based insights into how to help you resist temptation by avoiding relying on willpower 
  5. Behaviour change myths: Amazing slide share on the 10 myths of behaviour change and what to do about them, some surprising finds in there! 

Finding joy in your healthy habits. This month, I was also featured in an interview by Detox Kitchen, where I talked about the importance of finding joy in your healthy habits.

What people are saying about The Habit Changer programme:

"You were put in my path for a reason. Over the course of our sessions a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better."
- Orla

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering. Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what. I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier."
- Cathy

"It’s a different way of thinking a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different. It’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be . I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."
- Colm
