Steps Toward Healthier Eating

Pay close attention to your meals this week.  Commit to making fresh produce the largest portion on your plate.  Your meat and starches should be secondary to fruits and vegetables.  If you like fruits and vegetables this shouldn’t be a problem.  Load up!  Just make sure you’re eating a smaller portion of proteins and starches.

Being Consistent

“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives.  It’s what we do consistently.”  – Anthony Robbins

Consistency is the key factor in the achievement of any long term goal.  Unfortunately, it often proves to be the toughest challenge we have to overcome.  Here are a few tips that may help hold you accountable to a workout and/or nutrition program so that you can achieve the healthy feeling and image you’ve been striving for.

  • Find a partner to diet and exercise with
  • Reward yourself after reaching a weekly or monthly consistency goal
  • Deny yourself of a guilty pleasure unless you have worked out that day
  • Create realistic short term goals so that you can see improvements over a short amount of time
  • HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER! 🙂 (I know a great one)

No-Carb Challenge

Take the no-carb challenge and finish out this week by just saying “no” to carbs after dinner!  Save your carbohydrate intake for earlier in the day and focus on getting more “healthy” or complex carbs that are high in fiber than “bad” or simple carbs that are high in sugar and have a lot of white flour.
