Lose Weight and Keep It Off

Every diet works for the most part but eventually, the will & ability to keep up with the diet wears off. The key to losing weight & keeping it off is honestly behavior modification with a shift in focus. Too many times, when we go to attempt weight loss or toning up, we naturally think of all the things we have to cut out, which can be incredibly daunting and also not so worthwhile. Below are some behavior modifications and ways to shift focus that will allow for permanent weight loss.
