I recently discovered DIET-FREE, a healthy lifestyle program designed by Registered Dietitian Zonya Foco, and I am a fan. If you want to get healthy while learning to embrace life and listen to your body, then this program might be perfect for you.
How does it work? DIET-FREE consists of eight simple habits, that you work on adopting into your lifestyle one at a time. The eight habits happen to spell out the acronym DIET-FREE:
Drink Water… and think before you drink anything else.
Include breakfast… and stop eating two to three hours before bed.
Eat often… and include a fruit or vegetable each time.
Tame your sweet tooth… so you will naturally eat as little sugar as possible.
Replace processed, chemically enhanced foods for wholesome, close-to-the-farm foods.
Eat only until you are no longer hungry.
Every day exercise… and make it your middle name.
And, Zonya reminds us: every once in awhile, when the urge or circumstance dictates, it’s okay to live outside the guidelines of these habits!
These are great principles; ones that I strive to live by. You rock, Zonya! To learn more about DIET-FREE check out Zonya’s website. And, for a convenient printable version of the eight habits, check out this DIET-FREE handout.
