What is My Lil'Coach
The MyLil'Coach iphone application is your partner in reaching your goal of a healthy lifestyle
My Lil'Coach was developed by a well respected Registered Dietitian for patient compliance monitoring and lifestyle change.
Achieving the goal of health promotion, disease prevention and weight management is a complex one. There are many components to it. First, identify the problem; second determine the solution, third following through with the solution. Many individuals have the problem identified by their health care professional, the solution may take on many forms; education via books, articles, and health professionals. Many individuals will state that they know what they are supposed to do but they just have trouble following through. The change in behavior is an ongoing process; a process of taking a bad habit, substituting in a good behavior and practicing that good behavior until a new healthier habit has been formed. In other words, being consistent with the behavior change – this is where many individuals fail. Distractions from family and work usually interfere with their ability to focus on the task at hand.
