It takes 21 days to create a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle.

People often say they want to take steps toward becoming healthy, so they often jump in full force, saying they are going to work out 5 days/week and go on a diet of fruits & vegetables and nothing else.

That does not usually work.

Instead, picking one healthy change at a time and focusing on that, is what helps people stick to a program.

It can be as simple as drinking the recommended amount of water each day. Work on doing just that for 21 days to create a habit. Then pick the next habit you want to adopt and work on it for 21 days. A habit can be emotional, physical or food-driven and should be something that you want to get control of.
