Do you want to make it easier for you to stick with The Daniel Plan? Then put a H-A-L-T to the barriers that threaten to sabotage your progress.
The acronym H-A-L-T is a term commonly used in addiction treatment programs that can be very helpful in dealing with the daily obstacles you face. I understand that you may not equate an addiction program with weight loss, but in my opinion, chronic overeating is akin to substance abuse. And H-A-L-T has proven to be a very effective way to keep people on track when they are trying to change their habits.
