Alyssa Wilson, a registered dietician and Body Signals co-host, joins me to unpack the complex world of forgotten resolutions. We share our own experiences with goals that have both soared and stumbled, shedding light on the common pitfalls of setting lofty ambitions and the refreshing truth that resolutions need not be confined to the start of the year. 

We dive into an intriguing study showcasing how modest goals may actually bolster our long-term self-control, contrary to the allure of dramatic promises. Alyssa and I get candid about our own resolutions, focusing on adding veggies and fiber to our plates. We champion the idea of micro shifts in behavior, steering clear of the 'all-or-nothing' mentality that often leads to goal abandonment. 

We also explore how adding to our diet, rather than merely restricting, can lead to better glucose control and overall well-being. We observe the patterns in our community's eating habits and recommend positive approaches for a balanced diet that can help stave off the weekend indulgence peaks. Listen in as we revisit the Signos app's hunger dial, sharing how it can fine-tune not just your hunger and glucose levels but also potentially improve your sleep quality. Join us for an empowering conversation that promises to leave you with valuable insights and renewed vigor for your health journey any day of the year.
