As a trainer, I’m always talking to my clients about the importance of creating a LIFESTYLE.

Not a crash diet or a quick fix. But something they can maintain LONG TERM.

HOWEVER…and in fitness it seems there is always a HOWEVER or a BUT…There are still benefits to “30-Day” Challenges (or 21 day or whatever the length).

That doesn’t mean go out and do a detox or cleanse. It doesn’t mean start some crazy routine that will help you lose 60 pounds in 10 days.

BUT it does mean that you can sometimes use these quicker programs to your benefit. There is a reason why these programs can work to get you started as long as you have a plan for AFTER they are done.
