Play • 12 min

I’m back for another installment of my Hungry for More series, and this time I’m tackling the challenges and barriers which prevent people from achieving the lifestyle changes they desire. In this episode, I cover why it is important to identify and name your challenges, and then I address the most common barrier I’ve encountered in both myself and my patients.
