  • Choosing to prioritise health over saving money
  • Having 5 cups of veggies every day
  • Getting comfortable with being hungry
  • Serving yourself on a smaller plate
  • Spending calories wisely
  • Always sitting down to eat
  • Drinking HEAPS of water
  • Making good choices 80% of the time so that you can be more relaxed 20% of the time
