You go to the gym every day and you want to lose weight but no matter how hard you try, you can't. The first thing I ask my clients when they are consistently making it to classes but not feeling or seeing results is "what are you eating?"
Nutrition is the hardest part of the lifestyle change for anyone. If you're filling your body with crud, no amount of classes you do is going to give you those benefits you want.
If weekly fast food trips, processed food and added sugars are on your weekly menu, its time to make a change. The key to a lasting change is not to go too drastic. Instead of making a vow to give up every unhealthy thing in your life starting Monday, decide on one thing and work your way towards it this month. Remember though, feeling uncomfortable and fighting certain cravings is all okay!
So this week, make small changes. Maybe you're going to cut out your fast food trips and save that extra money for a weekend get away at the end of the month.
Maybe you want to cut out more simple carbs and add in more veggies. Whatever it is, work towards your goal and be gentle with yourself. A number on the scale isn't worth losing your sanity. Do what you can do for a lifetime. There is no reason why this shouldn't be an enjoyable process for you!
