Subject: How to change your family's eating habits

If you've changed your diet and gotten lean and healthy, I'm guessing you desperately want to help your partner, your children, your parents, or your siblings who still struggle with eating and weight and health.

But the ways we typically do that - giving unsolicited advice, nagging, criticizing, motivating - don't work, and actually incite resistance.

So we either keep banging our heads against the wall of that resistance, which damages our relationship, or we eventually get wise and shut up, justifying giving up by reminding ourselves that "you can't change other people; you can only change yourself."

And they don't change, and we can still feel sad, scared, or resentful as they eat and drink themselves to misery and an early grave.

There's a third way - one that can help them change, while actually strengthening your relationship with them.

In this 12-minute video, I share the simple, powerful, yet counterintuitive first step in changing the dynamic - to give you the best odds of helping them change.
