Making serious changes in the way you eat is not something you can do alone. This is a time when you need to “call out the troops” for help. The people you turn to for support will be uniquely yours, but these are a few possible ways to find support for a healthy lifestyle.
- Your Doctor/Nutritionist
- Friends and Family
- Classes, Workshops, Seminars
- Support Groups
- The Internet
Surround yourself with positive people and be sure any group you turn to for support encourages you to move toward wellness of mind, body and spirit. Be especially careful when looking online for information on medical diseases and conditions. Online forums, chat rooms and social communities can be sources of information, but sometimes contribute to people becoming “stuck” in being sick.
Don’t struggle through this alone. Reach out for help and support in whatever way works best for you. One day you may be the one others turn to for support.
