We are 14 days into the New Year, 2019. By now you have started a training program or at least put a plan together. We’ve already talked about health and fitness through exercise. Today we talk about achieving through nutrition.
You’ve got this. You just need to do 2 things.
1. Cut out sugar.
Yeah, that guy, friend, family member, doctor said sugar is bad and there was an article about it in that trusted nutrition journal, it was on the same day as that article about the celebrity with no knickers and the fake story about immigrants lacing tins of tuna with mind control drugs.
Anyway, sugar is bad, all the important people say so and Gwyneth Paltrow sweetens her ayervedic tea with the urine of South American squirrel monkeys and she’s way slim.
Yeah, so all you need to do is cut out all the sugar. So no sweets, cakes, biscuits, breakfast cereals, fizzy drinks, fruit juice, baked beans (because they have loads of added sugar an’ all) oh and fruit, no fruit because, you know… Sugar!
That’s OK, I’ll just put loads of honey on everything instead, honey comes from bees so that’s natural, Gwyneth Paltrow said so.
2. Cut out the fat.
Fat makes you fat obviously! It’s called FAT, what more do you need to know?
Fat also makes your heart really unhealthy, which is why you don’t eat bacon, beef, lamb, shellfish, full fat dairy, more than 2 eggs and only have ice cream with fruit flavors because that’s one of your 5-a-day.
You use vegetable oil for cooking, spread margarine on your granary toast, have baked chips instead of Pringles, drink vodka because those calories don’t count and you have fruit & fiber for breakfast because your doctor said your cholesterol is high.
Thank god for avocados, eh?
Of course, you have all the low fat options when you eat and the family sized bar of chocolate, the take away pizza and the Friday night curry don’t count because you’ve been really low fat all week.
Yeah, it’s that simple. Cutting out sugar and fat will definitely work for you.
Sorry to bust your bubble but that’s the same as following the newest fad diet. Not sustainable. You’ll lose the weight but as soon as you go back to your regular program, you’ll gain it all back plus some.
This is why you do need a coach. A good coach is more than someone who tells you what to eat or how to exercise. As John Wooden once said, “A good coach can change a game…”
“A Great coach can change a life” by:
- Helping you see what’s actually there.
- Giving you the tools to help you succeed.
- Supporting you without all the fluff.
- Teaching you accountability.
Monday is today and it seems as if everyone wants to start the journey on a Monday. “Well, everyone’s doing it, Mom.” Mom: “If everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?” “Well, of course nawt . . . Maybe.”
How about you?
Until tomorrow I’m only one click away.
