🗣 REAL TALK: Going on a DIET versus ⛽️ing your body
Recently I've seen a lot of posts about people beginning their diet for the summer season. Getting "shredded" for summer as some may say. .
First off, it is a great thing for anyone to make a decision to make a positive and healthier change to their lifestyle, so 👏🏼. .
That being said, over 90% of diets fail for multiple reasons. Just to name a few that I believe in:
- Misinformation out on social media misguiding people on how to properly and safely do such a thing. .
- Individuals setting unrealistic goals and because of it, give up or gain back any weight lost because it's unsustainable. .
- Individuals not knowing what to do and not developing a proper plan because of it. .
The remedy for this. EDUCATION EDUCATION EDUCATION.
That being said I believe that an individuals' mindset needs to shift from going on a diet to fueling your body. Here's why I believe this will help:
- With a fueling your body mindset, one will consciously make healthier choices as they will be better able to visualize the short and long term benefits of what they are about to eat. .
They will develop a better understanding of how certain food affects them and what foods to avoid prior to working out. .
-And lastly, I believe individuals will develop a healthier relationship with food and learn how to balance 🥒🍑🍗with 🍕🍩🍨 depending on the goals you develop. .
AGAIN these are just my opinions on why we should change our mindset from going on a diet to fueling our body. .
Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments! Do you Agree or Am I Crazy? .
This was my morning's breakfast. I tend to eat a larger meal for breakfast and stick to the basics 🍗🍚🥒 for lunch and dinner, with snacks throughout the day. I also begin my morning with @1stphorm Optigreens 50 on an empty stomach and Full Mega Fish Oil and Microfactor after I've eaten some to all of my meal as that is what works best for me. .
