How do I lose weight when my family doesn’t eat healthy?

This is a common struggle! The key is to remember that your commitment to losing weight is a success when you embrace the idea that losing weight is a lifestyle change as opposed to JUST sticking to a diet.

The best strategy to overcome the struggle of feeling disconnected from your family is to INCLUDE them. Studies show embracing a healthier lifestyle as a family increases weight loss success rates.

Other benefits of including your family on your weight loss journey:

Helps with accountability

Increased bonding

Supportive environment

Start small by making a commitment of eating a healthy dinner together each night this week… then continue to add a new healthy family goal each week.

If you have any questions about weight loss strategies or the above information, please do not hesitate to contact me at or by phone 845-210-6536
