Add Don't Subtract

If you are struggling with eating healthfully try this simple strategy: Add Don't Subtract.  Instead of focusing on all the foods and beverages you know you should not be consuming or at least limiting, change your focus to adding a food you know you should eat at least one meal a day.  


Set small goals you can attain.  For example the first week add one healthy food to one meal a day. Then maybe the next week add a healthy food to a second meal on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Build a little at a time.   


It can be as small as eating a salad or an apple after one meal a day.  


The important thing is to set the goal.  Write the goal down.  Communicate the goal to someone you can trust and ask them to hold you accountable.  


Add don't subtract!
