3. Creates new habits, new lifestyle choices
A good weight management programme needs to help you to create new habits long term. This means educating you about the food you eat, step by step.
4. Easy to follow, not complicated or overly burdensome
In my opinion, a lot of programmes, in trying to achieve point 3, over complicate and burden you in trying to create low fat, high fiber, calorie controlled meals which means weighing, measuring, complicated shopping trips…and cooking 3 meals a day! Look for something easy to begin with, that gets results quickly to keep you motivated and as you continue on your weight management journey, you will learn more about what good habits are.
