Fear of failing?

Calgary nutritionist Andrea Holwegner wonders why some people are so repelled by the idea of dietitians and the field of nutrition. Is it because the diet industry and many so-called health professionals have them believing that in order to be healthy, food must taste awful, be part of some special product or be difficult to prepare? Or could it be that they feel guilty that this is one area of their lives they value tremendously but can’t seem to figure out? Holwegner says people need to realize that you don't have to be perfect to make change.

Does the fear of failing keep you from good nutrition habits?
