Everyone struggles with a lack of motivation from time to time. You have something that needs to be done sooner or later. You know it makes sense to get moving on it, so you can clear it out of the way. Yet somehow, you just can't seem to get started on it.

Reminding yourself of the reason why you made the commitment to do something can have a huge impact on your outlook and motivation.
Even when people genuinely want to start eating more healthfully, they often doubt whether they can actually do it. This doubt stems from the mistaken belief they'll need to give up all the foods they like, and start eating foods they don't like.
