I can’t believe we are already halfway through humpday! This week is flying by, and I hope your week has been great so far!
Nutrition is always a topic of discussion in the fitness world because everyone has an opinion on it. It doesn’t matter if you are an everyday member or a fitness expert. Everyone has “something that they do.”
This is validation that there is no “one size fits all” plan for nutrition that will solve everyone’s issues. For the most part, when trying to find something that works for you, there are only a couple things you can try.
The first, of course, is can this new diet or plan fits your lifestyle. For me, I work crazy long days, and a simple diet plan of, “eat this much” doesn’t work for me, and it is why intermittent fasting works great for me. But it doesn’t work for people who work out in the evening or maybe work alternating shift work. Whatever your schedule is, or whatever type of lifestyle you have, your diet needs to work with that, or you will ultimately fail.
Start a nutrition plan or diet because you want to, not because of someone else goals or because of their success on something, if you’re going to be healthier than eat cleaner. Don’t jump onto the bandwagon of fad diets because it is the popular thing to do. The hardest thing to do is diet, and you make it even harder on yourself by doing something that you do not believe in.
The easy part of being healthy is working out. Ask anyone who has tried both, and they will tell you that showing up to the gym is way easier than sticking to a diet. So if you start a nutrition plan or diet, it has to support your exercise, not the other way around. When things get tough, it will be your diet that falls off, not your exercise. More often then not, people chose a diet plan that puts them at such a calorie deficit they start to get burnt out on exercising, not realizing that they do not have any energy to burn by the time they get to the gym. Chose a diet that helps you burn the unwanted fat but still provides your body with the energy you need to push through tough workouts so that you can get all the gainz!!!
Nutrition is the hard part of fitness. If you decide to do something, STICK WITH IT! Good things don’t happen overnight, and you need some consistency with nutrition and diets for them to work. Put sixty days on the calendar and fight hard to stay on your plan. You will see the results!
