Eat….your diet matters!

Share This Post

I like to talk about good, better and best when it comes to eating. ‘Good’ is doing your best to eat healthy foods. ‘Better’ is achieving a bit more of that than you did before. ‘Best’ is eating 6 small meals a day, organic foods where ever possible, high quality proteins at each meal, 11 serves of vegetables & 2-4 pieces of fruit through out the day, whole grains only etc.  and any other lofty goals that you can set. Keep in mind that ‘best’ will vary somewhat on opinion and should not be confused with ‘perfect’ as that does not exist.

Our philosophy with clients is to aim for small but relentless progress in all aspects of improving health and food is a big one. It is perhaps 80% of the fat loss equation, as it has been shown in many studies that even great exercise programs will not shift excess fat if diet is not addressed.

So if you are eating Macca’s every single day because you ‘earned it after your 20 mins on the treadmill, then aim to reduce that to 5 days a week. When this is your new habit, cut it back to 3 days in the week and increase your fruit intake by one (or one extra piece per day). Small and achievable steps is the key. Even if fat loss is not your goal, the energy and vitality you get from eating natural foods will power your exercising goals and help you have clearer thinking which we all know is base of all great steps forward.

Use it or lose it…..

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.
