Even these minor tweaks can make reaching your weight-loss goals easier

The holiday season is almost over, so it's time to start thinking about eating healthier again. Research shows that on average, people put on just a pound or 2 over the holidays, but any weight you gain can take months to shed.

That means you'll probably want to return to eating a healthier diet as soon as you can. But it's not always so easy.

“People set unrealistic goals and attempt to make wholesale changes,” says Lesley Lutes, Ph.D., an associate professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia. “That all-or-nothing behavior becomes overwhelming, leaves you feeling deprived, and sets you up for failure.”

That’s exactly why we’re advocating a more realistic approach: Try just a few minor tweaks. That makes the changes doable, not daunting, and you will see improvements in your health.
