The Joy Choice

Break the rules of behavior change so you can change your behavior for good! Why do our eating and exercise plans so often crash when they come up against real life? Because most of the programs, plans, and strategies we’ve been taught simply do not work in the noisy, busy, always changing world we live in.

The Joy Choice offers a fresh, brain-based solution that is designed to work right now, at each moment of choice. Sustainable-behavior-change researcher and lifestyle coach Michelle Segar turns our outdated behavior-change paradigm on its head to reveal a fresh, flexible, and fun approach to creating changes in eating and exercise that can finally stick.
