I hope you had a great weekend.
The start of a new day and week always means new opportunities make progress and to look and feel our best.
However, lots of people get STUCK in a viscous circle and struggle to move forward because they’re just not doing it right.
If that’s you, it’s not your fault.
Nutrition is the key area in helping you achieve your goals and something so many people struggle with.
It doesn’t help when so called ‘experts’, company’s selling weightloss products and other cowboys label foods as ‘good’, ‘bad’ and even a ‘sin’!
But don’t worry, my goal is to help you beat through industry BS like this and keep things simple.
Here’s a picture I posted on my social media last week that got alot of love and attention.
There are no such things as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ food.
And there’s certainly no food that’s a sin!
(don’t let any weightloss warriors convince you otherwise).
Some foods simply have more nutritional value than others – that’s it.
Feeling guilty ALL day because you ate a chocolate bar which is ‘bad’ or consuming too many ‘sins’ is insane, unnecessary and promotes a highly unhealthy relationship with food.
This negative mindset will also likely cause you to spiral, consume even more ‘bad’ foods and feel even worse.
Food should NEVER be given that amount of power to make you feel so guilty.
If you decide one night you want to relax a little.
To enjoy a glass of vino and perhaps eat an ice cream.
Please understand these are not ‘bad’ and they do not carry ‘sins’.
They’re just calorie dense and need to be consumed in moderation.
If you struggle with nutrition and feel guilty after eating certain foods.
For the next 7 days, try following the 80/20 rule and see how you get on.
The 80/20 Rule:
Eat nutritious, healthy foods 80% of the time.
Eat not so healthy foods 20% of the time.
It makes achieving your goals much easier and more enjoyable.
I really hope you give it a go and if you do, would love to hear your feedback.
