For those of you who don’t know, Matt Cutts is the popular ‘face of Google’. He is part of team that fights spammy websites, and does regular video updates teaching people how Google works.

In this TED talk, Matt talks about how he began to make changes in his life simply by trying something new for 30 days.

Although I’d love to say that Matt got his ideas by doing DietAssist (he hasn’t), his talk closely follows the philosophy that runs through our programme – that making small changes in your attitude and behaviours are more likely to stick long term and can soon add up to a surprising change.

So often, when we want to make changes – like losing weight – the task can seem overwhelming. Especially if you’ve tried and failed in the past.

But by making some small changes and keeping them going until they become second nature, they can add up to results that make you (and others) go “WOW”.

That’s why we designed the DietAssist programme in small bite sized chunks. Most of the videos, Mind Games and MP3s can be done in just 5-10 minutes, so it’s easy to work on the area you need most each day.

Maybe you lack motivation to exercise? Or suffer snack attacks? Or eat for emotional reasons? Or just eat junk out of habit? We’ve got it all covered – we’ve even written a post on how you can make losing weight with DietAssist your 30 day challenge.

Matt’s 30 day challenges have added up to quite a difference over the last few years – he’s written a novel, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and got himself in great shape. As he puts it, “I went from desk-dwelling computer nerd to the kind of guy who bikes to work — for fun!”

Similarly, the people who’ve actually got stuck in and used a little bit of DietAssist every day have some pretty amazing success stories to tell too.

But whatever your personal goal, the most important part of all, however, is to just pick something and just do it for 30 days
