Nutrition... Long term success comes from a healthy eating lifestyle
First thing we want you to do is give yourself a pat on the back. You have made an amazing achievement and now it’s time to think about how to keep the momentum going.
To have long term success with a healthy eating lifestyle, you need to have several factors in place. Of course number one is the right food. It’s important to eat food that supports your body. When you are properly nourished you will feel energized, motivated, and be free from cravings.
However we have found that having success goes beyond just knowing what to eat. It all boils down to proper planning and your environment. Consider this: “Failure to plan is planning to fail” (Alan Lakein). Research shows that planning is absolutely key to success, no matter your goals. When it comes to maintaining healthy eating habits, lack of planning often resorts in going off track and eating foods that may be convenient but not healthy. In addition, many of the convenience foods are manufactured to create a desire for more, which can set you even farther off track.
When it comes to your environment, we are certainly aware that there are some elements beyond your control. However, there are many ways to create an environment so that maintaining success is much easier. Let’s use your kitchen as an example. Not only do we provide support around removing temptations, we also give information on how to stock your kitchen with the right ingredients so you can put together healthy meals and snacks in a pinch.
Bottom line is that there are many factors that contribute to your long term success and we look forward to supporting you.
