Read Transcript

A healthy eating plan is one that integrates your lifestyle, your schedule, your preferences, and what's available to you. I think their's no such thing as one size fits all healthy eating plan, so it's time to take a moment and think about what works for you. You don't want to create a healthy eating plan that consists of foods that you don't like.

It's key to include in there foods that you enjoy, foods that are healthy to understand the balance of protein of fruits and vegetables of multi-grain, of carbohydrates of alcohol. You want to make sure that you create a plan that you can stick to in the long term. If you create something that's going to allow you to lose 40 pounds, but you think you can't go another day with it that weight, it's not only going to come back, it's going to be to lose the second time.

So the key is to consider your lifestyle, what you like, your family, construct a plan accordingly what really helps is to bring together a group or a buddy were you guys can sort of figure out what healthy eating plans looks like, your buddy may bring up ideas that you never thought of for example things to bring to work for lunch, snacks to keep in your desk, farmers markets in you community, or ways that you can just make a plan that works in the long term.

By doing that together you can create a sort of library of meals that you can turn to over, over weeks, months and years so you can create a sustainable, and interesting way of eating for you and the people around you.
