Do you have a good plan?

Share This Post

When we coach clients in Nutrition we are constantly evaluating results. Quite simply if the body isn’t changing then there are one of two explanations. It is either a good plan that hasn’t been applied well or a bad plan that needs adjusting. Usually it is the former. Complete honesty is needed if progress is going to be made. Most people who don’t know better jump from one plan to another before they have given the one they are on enough respect.

There is a Buddhist quote which I really like. I just read it the other day on a post by renowned strength and conditioning coach, Mike Boyle – “in the beginners mind there are many choices, in the experts there are few”.

He is a big fan of the KISS principle and adhering to the basics. When it comes to nutrition, unless you are adhering to the basic habits and do those ‘savagely well’ & have done for 3 months at least, don’t even think of changing the plan! And keep to one habit at a time if you are having trouble with big change. Before you know it, you will have new healthy behaviours as a normal part of your life.

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
