    Making wholesale nutritional changes all at once is rarely successful, but fortunately you don't need to do that to make a lasting change.

    As a fitness trainer and nutrtion expert, I have crafted a 10-week nutrition challenge that asks participants to try something new each week. If you like what you see one week, keep it up. If not, try the next one.

    If you're feeling particularly ambitious, start adding the habits together and see how they help you improve your fat loss goals. But remember, the key to fat loss success is consistency, so don't overwhelm yourself.
