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.

  1. 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”.
  2. For the following week, take out the obvious “bad foods” e.g. takeaways, fizzy drinks, chocolate.
  3. The third week is when you start to introduce specific healthy foods such as fish, lean meat, veggies and fruit.
  4. 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.

Why not give it a try? Email me your food diary for a 4-day period and I will be happy to meet with you and make some recommendations to get your nutrition on track!
