Simply knowing “how” to do something, doesn’t mean that we will do it. We may know how to walk, but how many of us make it a point to walk every day for exercise? We may know how to eat vegetables, but how many of us eat our veggies every day? Knowledge does not create action.We must change our behavior to reach out weight loss and fitness goals, or ANY goal for that matter! BJ Fogg developed a model that is easy to apply and highly relevant for anyone wanting to change their behavior. The Fogg Behavior Model can be used to help us manage the three critical elements of behavior change which are motivation, ability, and triggers.
