The top 5 reasons you struggle with nutrition.

You ready?

These may surprise and offend you.

1 – You want a specific answer to a general question and refuse to learn of yourself.
2 – You aren’t honest with yourself about how much you eat.
3 – You don’t track your calories.
4 – You reject the notions of common nutritional sense for more favourable fad diets that tell you what you want to hear.
5 – You expect to see results in a few days or a week.

Bonus – You consume more total calories than you expend each day.

Harsh but true.

Here are 5 ways to combat the above issues:

1 – Take the time to learn what nutrition is and isn’t.
2 – Be honest with yourself.
3 – Buy a diary or download and app and track everything (food, drinks etc).
4 – Just because what you’re told isn’t what you want to hear doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Don’t fall victim to fad diets and good marketing.
5 – Eat less, move more and remember that progress takes months or even years to really see, not days.

Bonus – Hire a coach to help you.

Applied the above and you’ll be far better off for it.
