You sentence really makes no sense at all.  Sustainment is the subject of your sentence.  It cannot eat salad or perform any other actions. The individual parts of your sentence don’t explain what sustainment is, so I can’t figure out what you intended to communicate with your sentence.  It seems as though you are describing what a person should do to lose weight, but then sustainment doesn’t fit in with that list.  You’ll need to start over with this sentence.
