DIET-FREE: The Eight Habits That Will Change Your Life

image 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.

Find the fat… and know the good, the bad and the ugly.image

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.
