How they Sabotage Eating and Exercise Goals
and What Works for Sustainable Results
Free WORKSHOP WITH Ali Shapiro, MSOD, CHHC
SMART goals are the standard and default approach to setting goals
when it comes to eating and exercise.
And yet new research illuminates that when it comes to eating and exercising, SMART goals fail to create sustainable results and often will set you back.
Fortunately, there’s a much better way.
What we know about how to change and heal is shifting.
I want you to be part of this change.
It involves a radically different approach to goal setting and achieving.
In this workshop, we will cover Not just what to do but the how to reach your 2023 eating and exercise goals:
- The emerging research on why eating and exercise are in a unique change category and the necessary shift to effectively goal set and accomplish.
- The critical role identity plays in reaching our goals and how SMART goals deepen the very identities like “out of control around food”, “not disciplined enough”, and “perfectionist” we need to change.
- How bad habits are protective and why understanding their root causes is critical to reaching your goals, including you can’t “Tony Robbins” your way out of bad food and health habits.
- How “being bad” and imperfection are critical to reaching your eating and exercise goals.
I’ll also share about Truce with Food 2023, my once a year program, which is now open for registration January 9-20, where we definitely don’t use SMART goals.
