You’ve no doubt heard of the 80/20 rule before. Exercise accounts for 20% and diet accounts for 80% of your results. Here’s what to do:
a) burn more energy than you consume. Admittedly this is sometimes hard to define!
b) eat more foods that stabilise your blood sugar to reduce cravings and overeating. Avoid added sugar and the many versions of it
c) prioritize high-quality protein and vegetables at every meal even breakfast!
d) organise your environment for success, plan out your grocery shopping each week and also your meals.
e) Avoid ALCOHOL. It will not only add unwanted calories, it will weaken your resolve and add no nutrients to your daily requirement.
f) Go easy on so-called CHEAT MEALS. The general concept of “cheat” meals and “clean” eating can lead to guilt and general negativity around what should be a celebration and an opportunity to deliver health and vitality at each meal.

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.
