Do you ever wonder what makes up good nutrition? Like what it REALLY looks like?
After 15+ years of him-hawing around the subject and trying to figure it out myself, in 2014, I finally obtained my nutrition coach certification through Precision Nutrition one of the largest nutrition schools on the globe. I’m so happy I did.
PN coaching has been noted equivocal to a masters degree in nutrition, and when you consider the Level 2 portion of their education, equates further to college education in psychology and human behavior. Let’s just say…..it’s the Bomb when it comes to teaching people about nutrition!
Understanding what’s really going on with the body and food has completely changed and healed my own relationship with food and also with my body. I don’t even think the same way that I did 5 years ago!
Today, I want to share the 10 basic principles that are of utmost importance when it comes to your nutrition. There’s no secrets here. In fact, there’s probably nothing here that you haven’t heard before. Consistently applying and practicing these habits will lead to your own healing and change not only around food and your body, but for your life as well.
Of course, there are many variances and individualized strategies beyond these 10; however, unless you have solidly implemented this stuff, those more advanced strategies won’t matter. These are the BASICS. It’s like lying on a surf board on the sand before you hit the waves…….you want to make sure you’ve got a good solid “feel” for the board (the basics) before you head out and ride the tide.
Ten Strategies for Successful Nutrition
Name your non-negotiables and make sure you include them regularly if not daily (depending on what they are!) Deprivation almost always leads to binging later.
PRACTICE. Try doing what Dr. Brooke Kalanick preaches….BETTER, not Perfect.
Every single day. Practice it.
Don’t beat yourself up when you don’t get it right. Stand back up and practice again with the next meal, the next snack, or the next day.
Now, determine your limiting factor. What from that list above is keeping you from results?
If something stands out to you that you KNOW you aren’t practicing consistently, that is exactly where you need to start. If you’d like, keep yourself accountable by typing your limiting factor in the comments! You’re not a lone so don’t be shy!
Just Remember …. KEEP GOING,
