@JayJay, I do that too. "I'll try it for a month and see what happens" is an easier target than "this time next year." And frankly, there's NO WAY a year ago I could have imagined stalking around today feeling supple and strong with no pain and no fatigue. The t-shirt I'm wearing today has 4" of excess sleeve circumference; last year when I wore this tee I had to tug on the sleeves to stretch them because they were so tight it was uncomfortable.

Brutal honesty, indeed--the more I can stick to that the better my results.

His approach--thinking about more than just nutrition and movement--is very sound in my opinion. And even though I'm more of a social introvert than true extrovert, his remarks about community are right on. I form my own tentative conclusions but I also wonder what Melissa, Kurt and Evelyn will think and I'm willing to shift my reaction if their logic/evidence is compelling. I also reserve the right to go my own way, which is why I'm currently experimenting with ADF (alternate day fasting.)

Environment was pretty easy for me, actually, because I actually enjoy the challenge of hunting/gathering from restaurant menus and not ordering if the "hunt" fails. His mindset section was more a of major factor for me, since my history was emotional/binge eating. So it IS important for me to understand my personal why and my triggers.

His new chess piece, recovery, is very true. I've known a number of people who couldn't understand why they weren't achieving their fitness goals when what I saw was sleep deprivation and over-training that didn't allow their body to maintain bodily health let alone improve overall status.

This was another strong session and Dean is a good person to listen to.

Good points about the other pieces to healthy living. Not sure I agree with the statement that you should be able to envision yourself following the changes you have made for 365 days. Some times you just gotta lie to yourself a little :). Telling yourself "I'm just gonna give this 30 days" may be just what you need to get the ball rolling. The hardest part of change is getting started IMO. Otherwise really liked his style.
