Happy New Year to you! Did you set some goals? Did you know that weight loss is one of the leading New Year’s goals to be set? Was it on your list?
Being on a diet has implications of a temporary and restrictive lifestyle, which is why it so often sets you up for failure. Think differently this year… Let me introduce you to the anti-diet!
- You can stop reading books that promise you the answer to sustainable weight loss by surviving on a “faddy” diet.
- Just focus on foods that are nutritious and fuel your body with energy.
- You can STOP counting calories, and focus on making your calories count.
There is no denying that Diet and Nutrition is a key pillar in the fight against modern day health problems and weight issues. The link between obesity and disease with the consumption of refined sugar and processed foods is clearly evident.
A perfect goal:
We have evolved to eat foods that are as close to their natural state as possible so your goal should not be to eat “an amount” of calories each day, it should be to see how many nutrients you can eat within “an amount” of calories. Simply put, set your goal as improving your health with nutritious foods that give you energy and strength.
The results to expect:
When your diet is based around vegetables, fruits, quality sources of protein and natural fats, you will feel more nourished and satisfied making you less likely to over eat. More importantly you become healthier as your body adapts to this fuel for energy rather than relying on empty calories.
