If you’ve read my prior posts, you’ve likely seen that I’m a huge advocate for bringing healthy habits into your life.
Over time, those little habits can add up to some pretty massive changes and starting out with a healthy inner dialogue is a great place to start!
So many people I speak to are overwhelmed at the idea of losing weight, they’ve tried to diet before, lost a few pounds then hit a wall. They had all the desire in the world but still found themselves falling back into old routines. How does that happen? Simple, most people approach weight loss with a restrictive approach. Each day is met with, I can’t have this, I can’t do this, I can only have so much of this, limiting foods and counting calories until their blue in the face and grouchy by lunch.
When your focus is placed what you can’t have, instead of what you CAN have, your setting yourself up for an uphill battle.
If you struggle with that inner dialogue too, let’s shift the mindset just a little. Instead of walking through the day focusing on what your cutting out, try to put your focus on what you CAN have. You may be surprised at how well that simple shift will help you stick to your goals.
If your just starting out, keep it simple, don’t worry about counting calories, or macros. Instead, focus on incorporating whole, raw or minimally processed foods into your meals. Not ready to give up your favorite recipes? Then don’t… instead take the opportunity to modify your favorite go to, feel good recipes and transform them into in a feel good, recharging dishes that give you the energy you need to thrive through the day, instead of draining your energy and weighing you down!
Do this in conjunction with reducing or eliminating sugars and refined carbs and your off to an amazing start that will have long term rewards.
