I love this article**!!! Precision Nutrition has hit the nail on the head again, especially with the awesome graphic I copied below. This is why I coach like I do and why I chose to be certified by PN – no calorie counting, advanced metrics, too much planning, etc. It’s all habit based. Build healthy habits that you can apply in any situation and enjoy your life 🙂
**One caveat though, a personal concern of mine – I don’t agree with their suggestion to “get a dog that needs walking”. Do not, I repeat DO NOT get a dog with the sole purpose of helping you lose weight. Dogs are living beings and are not a responsibility to be taken lightly. My dog is the love of my life and means the world to me but even so it’s not always easy and getting a dog for the wrong reason means a trip to the pound for the poor pup.
