“What should I eat?” may be one of the top questions asked by clients.
The truth is that there are no specific foods or diet plans that will magically make you progress forward. Every body is different, and our bodies need variety in nutrition. It is crucial to focus on a healthy diet, however we want to be sure you aren’t cutting out entire food groups or foods in the process (unless there is a specific health reason and medical guidance to be doing so).
Nutrition is easily the habit most people fall off track with regularly. This is usually because they picked an unsustainable approach, became very restrictive, etc. Instead of thinking of foods as foods you “can” or “can’t” eat, try a less restrictive approach for long-term success.
A great way to approach nutrition in a balanced, sustainable way is to think of foods as foods you should eat more of, eat some of, and eat less of. This approach makes you feel much less restricted and miserable, doesn’t cause you to beat yourself up if you enjoy an ice cream cone with friends, and lasts long term. It’s more of a lifestyle than a crash diet.
Taking this approach allows you to be flexible, adapt on the go, and most importantly: enjoy the process.
