Whether you want to eat healthier, become more active or quit smoking, you will need some support: from your family, your co-workers or trained professionals. And even though our expectations seem reasonable to us, others may see things differently.
For instance, you may want to eat healthier but your family may not be on board and in fact may consciously or unconsciously try to sabotage you. Remember, that in most cultures, food is love and changes to eating patterns can threaten long established social patterns. Conflict arises and you many fall back into old patterns to “keep the peace” so to speak.
