If you’re struggling to lose weight or stick to a healthier diet, it’s not that you don’t know what you should do–it’s that sticking to your goals and resisting temptation can be more difficult than you thought! This course will show you how to stick to those goals and resist tempting, diet-busting foods and activities through proven mental strategies.

I’m not just making things up like a lot of health and fitness “gurus.” You’ll learn practical tips taken from rigorous research in psychological science, and you’ll discover how you can easily and effectively implement these techniques.
