Do your goals help you?


Friday, March 29, 2013

Here is a tip for those people who set goals in their quest for health...compliments of Shape magazine..."If you want to train your brain to choose healthy foods over fattening ones, be specific. "Scientific research shows us that there are two kinds of intentions: ‘goal' intentions which are broad (‘I need to eat better') and ‘implementation' intentions that are more specific (‘I need to only eat meals that I cook myself')," Dr. Pillay says. "When you are too general, the brain is less likely to change its behavior, however, when you are more specific, it has to do less work on its own to help you achieve your goal. This is especially true of weight-loss strategies," he adds." http://www.shape.com/lifestyle
