There’s a ridiculous amount of information out there about what to eat to lose weight, feel great, and get healthy.
Chances are you’ve heard of – and tried – at least one (but probably several) approaches, each of which are purported by somebody to be “the answer” to our health and fitness problems.
Just to name a few, we’ve got low fat, clean eating, vegan, low carb, Paleo, vegetarian, IIFYM, raw food, keto, Primal, and all sorts of shakes, cleanses, detoxes, point systems, and pre-made meals.
So, with all of these options, why do so many of us end up frustrated, defeated, and feeling like a failure when we don’t see the physical changes we want, or we can’t seem to stick with our eating habits?
I know how you feel.
After trying one thing after another to get to a healthy weight and getting nowhere, it wasn’t until I understood three things that I finally found a way of eating that helped me look, feel, and perform at my best:
- There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Although there are some general nutritional guidelines that serve as a starting point for most of us, we’re all individuals and finding exactly what works takes experimentation.
- Food is only one part of the equation. Our physical activity, stress management, sleep, and (perhaps most importantly) mindset are just as critical as our food choices in how successful we are with improving our health and body composition.
- More is not always better. Often, working out more, eating less, and trying harder can actually work against us in the long run. If an approach is not right for us or is unsustainable in the context of the rest of our lives, then it will ultimately fail.
Now I help men and women just like you find what eating and lifestyle habits work best for them, and identify and correct the thought patterns and attitudes that may be holding them back.
