Locking down your diet…

Everyone blames themselves and says the same thing:

“The diet worked great, I just didn’t stick to it”.

Our question is – how great could it be if you couldn’t stay with it?

Imagine you have body fat you want to lose so you take it slow and steady and lose just 1/2 pound per week. You eat a balanced diet of protein, fat and carbs from mostly unprocessed sources. Just a mild calorie deficit each day…real mild and in a year you’ve dropped about 25lbs.

We explain it like that to illustrate perhaps the single most important factor in nutrition…that’s right sustainability. That pop culture term actually holds true on every level. What you are willing to do short-term isn’t usually what you can handle long-term. And when switching gears most people go off the rails and into the ditch and the ditch is full of junk food.

Our experience as fitness clinicians has showed us that it takes over a year to become accustomed to a new way of eating and a new body fat percentage. If you honestly want change make sure you choose a nutrition format you can easily see yourself sticking with for a couple of years NOT a couple of months.

Be well, be strong,

Andrew and Tierney
