 Find Your Motivation: Diet Detective Charles Platkin, PhD, MPH

“The most important thing you need to do is determine the reason why you want to lose weight,” Platkin says. “Most people aren’t connected to this reason, so when they’re deciding between the apple and the donut, if it’s on taste, the donut will win every time. We make several hundred micro decisions every day, and if you really want to choose health, there are ways to do it, now more than ever. But you won’t do it if you are losing weight because someone else, like your husband or wife, thinks you should. You have to decide this personally, for yourself.”
