Without any doubt, nutrition is the hardest part for most people to master! On a scale of 1-10 (10 being completely healthy) how would you rank your nutrition? Nutrition truly is 80% of your success equation. Think of it…have you ever caught yourself in a mindset such as the following: “I workout so that I can eat whatever I want!” Chances are that you have had those thoughts or some very similar. Don’t worry you are not alone, BUT you are wrong! The old cliché’ that “you are what you eat” could never be more true. Think about it just for a moment…your body LITERALLY (yes literally) becomes what you feed it day after day. Your bones, skin, hair, body fat level, organs, and essential fluids are ALL a direct transformation (chemically) of the foods that you consume.
With this in mind, can you possibly make the argument that nutrition is merely an inconsequential part of your physical make-up? Of course we know this not to be the case. The problem is that most of us do not eat as healthy as we should…and we know it! From processed foods to artificial sweeteners, we are bombarded daily with choices that may or may not be healthy for us. This may be a source of confusion for you as you try to live a healthy lifestyle.
Knowing how important nutrition is to your overall success, how do you sift through all of the fad diets and all of the hype to get to the truth? Is dieting the answer? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at any given time two-thirds of all American adults are on a diet to either lose weight or prevent weight gain. Of those, 29 percent are men and 44 percent women. Yet only 5 percent of these dieters will be successful at keeping the weight that they lost off! Can you believe that! That means that 95% of all diets fail! That is why we believe in long term change! You must change your nutritional lifestyle. You must change your nutritional habits. You must change the way you view foods and the roles that they play in your life.
