The problem with almost every diet plan is that the creator of the diet believes it is the best diet for any person, in any situation, at any time. In our life cycles, we have vastly different needs that are best met by a variety of diets.
There is a vast amount of people focusing on a diet, I want you to really ask yourself,
How many diets have you been on?
Or how many haven't worked?
In the health industry there is all this emphasis just on what your body looks like, everyone knows that you can still eat junk and still obtain a great physique. This goes back to the public system of how it is flawed, how the whole focus is just about the body and not your health.
There are many solutions and new diets out there, ask yourself, do I want to just lose weight initially for just a few weeks and potentially destroy my body in the processes every time I jump onto another diet plan ?
Or do you want something that I you can sustain my entire life and feel awesome? :)
If your answer is YES! Then STOP focusing on a diet and worrying about weight loss and CHANGE your focus to be happy healthy, energized and sleeping well.
Steps to change your focus to health
- Eat Nutrient Dense Foods (foods that have sustained life on this planet for millions of years. Vegetables, fruit, Animal meat, nuts seeds ect
- Do Not Restrict FATS. (Some great options are coconut oil, Grass fed butter and much more
- Don’t Count Calories (Not sustainable and you probably have not got a bodybuilding competition coming up , If your diet has a great basics of nutrient dense foods, then its not the calories that is the problem it’s the junk food that’s been shoveled down your mouth.
- Don’t Restrict Calories, (Restricting calories is a stressor. When your body is stressed and believes it is starving, it wants to hold on to fat. By eating more of the right foods, you tell your body, it’s okay to burn fat.)
- Stop Focusing On The Scales (The human body is one incredibly complex piece of machinery. As a result, your weight can fluctuate wildly over the course of a 24-48 hour period. Depending on what you ate today, how much water you drank, if there was sodium in your food, what time of day you weigh yourself, your weight WILL be different. Here’s how you can stay strong and motivated without stepping on a scale regularly: Remember that your journey to a healthier life is a marathon, not a sprint. Changes from day to day are practically meaningless and incredibly difficult to quantify, so go with changes over a longer period of time. Weigh yourself once a month or every other week if you really need to check 1* Look at your body composition rather than your weight. 2* How do you feel, mental state, energy levels, confidence levels, conditioning and your overall well being 3 * Set goals that are not weight-oriented. Say you want to do 15 push ups, run a half marathon, and/or do a pull up. With your mind focused on a strength building or endurance goal, you won’t have to worry so much about a dumb scale. If you can only do 5 push ups now, but next month you can do 15, you definitely got stronger, but you probably also lost some fat.
- Eat Enough Quality Calories (Nutrient dense foods are often sacrificed when people restrict calories. Things like grass-fed butter, fatty pasture raised meat, and organs have the highest nutrient content of any food. They’re also high in calories, which is why misinformed calorie-fearing people avoid them. Without proper nutrients, your body won’t efficiently burn fat or build muscle. Eat nutrient dense foods and ignore the calories. It’s food quality and composition that matter, not volume.
- Stop Eating Low-Calorie Junk Food: In order to cut calories, many people resort to things (I’m not going to call them foods) like 100 calorie snack packs, diet soda, and fat free yogurt. Big mistake. These foods might be lower in calories, but they make you crave more food. They don’t satisfy your appetite or provide nutrition. They contain toxins that will impede your fat loss goals and are potentially harmful to your health. Refined and packed “food products” make you fat. You’re better off to go hungry, seriously than to eat these junk foods.
- Not filled with 100 Ingredients, food is not something with a hundred ingredients in them. Before you pick something off the shelf, just pay 2 seconds to read a label and make sure that what you are buying is actually inside and not just 10% 30% or mixed with various other agents.
- Enjoy Your Food.
My promise to you is live from these steps and YOU WILL see Great Results. Remember, we want changes that we can live with consistently, So take things one day at a time.
I know you can do this, focus your mind and actually get the important stuff done. If you say you haven't got time to focus on your health, then it's not important to you
