For so many of the clients I deal with, the idea of eating healthfully seems fraught with all kinds of hurdles that interfere with the best of intentions. You want to stick with healthy eating, but sometimes it’s too hard when everyone else around you is eating “regular” food.
Other times, there are insensitive people who try to push food on you, and it gets to the point where it’s just too hard to continue to fend them off.
Or maybe, it’s just “one of those days,” and the stress is overwhelming–which makes the chocolate (or ice cream, or pizza, or wine) look too tempting to pass up.
If any of those situations applies to you, it’s worth asking the question, “What would it take to stick with your healthy diet–for life?”
Here’s what I’ve noticed: in general, the people I work with would have to focus on only two questions to be able to eat healthfully for the long term.
For most of us, we focus far too much on the first question, but not enough on the second.
If only the time spent on each were reversed, many more of you would have lifelong success with your healthy eating.
To learn more about how this might work, take a look at today’s video, where I boil it down to these two questions, and what’s involved in sticking with it for the long term.
Then, tell me what you think! Does this idea resonate for you? Would you be willing to try this?
