I want to get started on a good nutrition plan but my husband is a meat and potato guy. What should I do?
Keeping your home safe is important for success. A safe home is one free from triggers. A trigger is something that will trigger you into returning to the old behavior. If you are trying to live a life without alcohol, take the alcohol out of the house. If you are trying to live a life without sweets, take the sweets out of the house. Your home needs to support your goals.
Let your husband know how important it is to you to have your family on a good nutritional plan. Explain to him that you need it, and for you to be most likely to succeed you need family support. Include him and the kids in the new menu planning. You can’t make them do your plan, but you can educate them on why you are doing it and provide them the opportunity to do it with you. Focus on what you can do, regardless of your family’s support. Hopefully they will get on board. Living a healthful lifestyle works best if it is a family thing.
