The 28 Day Healthy Eating Challenge
28- Day Healthy Eating Challenge
The beauty of this plan is that you can customize the plan however you wish. Follow these steps:
Pick one level that best suits you and your goals. Consider a level that you can sustain, but is just a little outside your normal habits.
Once you’ve determined your level, review the healthy eating action items listed. Pick 1 or 2 to incorporate or if you feel brave do all 3 actions listed.
Select a day you’d like to begin. Mark the start date on your calendar and the end date, too. Again, if you think 28 days is too long, start with 7 days. See how you feel after 7 days and determine whether you can handle to keep going for another 7 days. You might be surprised how each week gets a little easier.
