The Importance of Day 2 (short video)

Day 1 getting started eating healthy or being active again is important, but what is so significant about “Day 2”?

This is the 2nd entry in the new series titled “Making Health a Habit”, which can be found here.

Making Health a Habit picks up where A Dietitian’s Journey left off and provides general health information about lowering insulin resistance, keeping blood sugar at a healthy level, or maintaining (or building) muscle mass, or may simply be my opinion on different matters related to a low carb or ketogenic diet. Making Health a Habit are short videos (< 5 minutes in length) or short blogs on health-related topics and are quite different than Science Made Simple articles which are longer,  research-focused articles.

In this short video I explain:

Research demonstrates that it takes 2-3 months (~66 days) to do something enough that it becomes a habit [1]. For some,  making something a habit is simply a matter of setting SMART Goals (as I talk about in this article) and working on them consistently until they achieve them.  For others, having the support of a professional such as myself during this formative time is what makes it possible for them to make their health a habit.  As I say in the video; whatever works!

If you’d like to know how I can help you get started eating healthy or working towards putting symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes or high blood pressure into remission, please let me know.

If you’d like to learn more about my own health recovery and weight-loss journey, you can find more than 2 year’s worth of articles and videos under “A Dietitian’s Journey”.  Even just have a look at the very first video I made March 16, 2017 which is posted here , as it is quite remarkable to compare how I look and sound in that one, with today’s.

The photo on the left is from the first video I made on March 16, 2017 when I first began my journey, and the photo on the right is from today’s video (May 16, 2019).
