Iron Will Plan 2010

The Iron Will plan is very simple. Each month there is a different test of will power. This year the theme is eating habits. Eat month I will explore a different eating habit in hopes of achieving live long habits to better living.

This is not a diet plan nor are any of the items listed attempts at a diet! Though one could lose weight from attempting these lifestyle changes, it is not intended to achieve weight goal. The goal is to become more aware of what goes into the body rather than to regulate what goes in.

My plan is structured as follows to fit the events in my life. Of course if you want to try it, you can modify and substitute anything you see. Just make sure they are things you believe you can actually do.
