Transition from Poor Eating to Healthy Eating
So you’re ready to clean things up and get your nutrition on track, here are a few things you need to consider before diving into a strict ‘diet’ to lose those extra kilos or to gain solid muscle.
- Write down EVERYTHING that you eat and drink for 4-7days, this way you can see what you are consuming and pick out the obvious “bad foods”.
- For the following week, take out the obvious “bad foods” e.g. takeaways, fizzy drinks, chocolate.
- The third week is when you start to introduce specific healthy foods such as fish, lean meat, veggies and fruit.
- If you can successfully cut out the bad foods for the two week period, it’s time to get a little bit stricter and start looking at a nutrition plan.
After a few weeks of planned eating you should have formed a healthy eating habit and you will no longer reach for bad foods but healthy alternatives
Keep in mind, the common belief that creating a new habit takes around 20-30 days. So the key to being successful in changing your eating ways is to start SLOW and consider the change for life rather than a ‘diet’. You will be far more successful if you get into the habit of healthy eating as a lifestyle choice rather than a select period of time.
