In 2017, EBT developed a simple way for us to learn how to change our Brain Habits, specifically the habits that drive overeating and weight gain: The 30-Day Joy Challenge. The plan was simple. Take one small step toward changing the brain’s habits each day and watch your eating and life transform.
Map out four Stress Circuits that trigger overeating and weight gain for you. Use the simple techniques to change those pathways so that instead of triggering overeating, they activate your desire to eat healthy food. Instead of driving weight gain, they encourage the release of extra weight. Along the way, make five small "lifestyle resets" to adopt a vibrant, rewarding lifestyle.
