SMART Goal Setting

Using the smart approach sets people up to do the right thing when it comes to diet and weight loss. Read what Jill Weisenberger, MS, RD, shared with us about her presentation for Moderation Nation, sponsored by Hershey.

Jill Weisenberger, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., uses the SMART approach: Jill told a story about a patient who really suffered from the diet mentality and one other who embraced moderation. She showed everyone a 5 pound block of fat and said it can come off in 5 weeks or a year or some other amount of time. One fun mindful eating exercise was to eat a chocolate drop quickly and one slowly. Then she showed a bunch of ways to make simples changes in diet - nothing super strict. She also talked about SMART goal setting.
