Diets solve short term problems but not fulfill long term goals. Though there are supplements that help, they have to be used the right way for you.
Step 5: Realize progress and reward achievements – Living healthy is a long term process but there can be short term goals to reach the end results. By setting weekly or monthly goals and hitting them helps set a solid foundation to continuing the journey. Reward yourself when you hit milestones such as buying a new outfit or doing something that you have always wanted too.
