Finding The Balance You Need

Making a lifestyle change is no easy feat. There is no switch to flip that makes you stop loving the donuts or rich fettuccine or fried fish you’ve loved since childhood. Those foods induce a satiating feeling, and the only way you can get that feeling is to actually eat the food. That’s a tough…
