Discover Why You Can Upgrade Your Habits Even If You're Completely Unmotivated 11 years ago, I was eating fast food every single night and I never exercised. You couldn't have paid me to change my ways. Trying to force myself to change wouldn't work because I would have rebelled against giving up my comforts.
