Deal with stress
Cope with challenges that can derail your hard work—like how to choose healthy food when eating out
Get back on track if you stray from your plan—because everyone slips now and then
In the second half of the program, you will enhance the skills you’ve learned so you can maintain the changes you’ve made.
