Now that you all have your copies of Foodist I’m sure you’re itching to get started upgrading your healthstyle, and I want to help.
Once you join Lift head over and follow me. I have all sorts of fun habits I try to cultivate including trying new foods, eating something green, walking 10,000 steps a day, and shopping at the farmers market. Feel free to participate in any or all of these, and add your own if you want. Keeping track makes it much easier to stick to your goals.
I’ve also created a special Foodist group of habits in the Lift app for those following the Foodist healthstyle recalibration (Chapter 9). The recalibration requires eliminating sugar, wheat, dairy and alcohol for 2-8 weeks in order to to help restore insulin sensitivity and troubleshoot other food-related health issues. In the book I recommend the recalibration for people with more than 20 pounds to lose who may be metabolically compromised (insulin resistant) or suspect they have food sensitivities.
Although the recalibration is not required for foodists, it can be really useful for those who have had trouble losing weight in the past. If you choose to participate, you’ll be sent a short survey so we can see how the recalibration is affecting you.
Either way I hope you join me on Lift, it’s a great resource for building a better healthstyle. If you add any interesting new habits, feel free to mention them in the comments so other people can check them out and join in.
