I see this often with clients, and was guilty of it myself for years. โฃ
โฃ
Iโ€™d fight to follow the โ€œperfectโ€ diet. โฃ
Or eat for my โ€œoptimalโ€ health. โฃ
Or just keep up with the latest, keto, paleo, atkins, weight watchers trend of the week. โฃ
โฃ
Iโ€™d struggle to sustain it. โฃ
โฃ
Sure I could follow it for a week and lose 5lbs, but Iโ€™d quickly find myself back where I started, beating myself up even more because I couldnโ€™t see it through. โฃ

Instead of looking for the โ€œ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ตโ€ plan that was going to get me the fastest results with the most weight loss possible, I started looking for the plan I could actually follow. โฃ
โฃ
I started to incorporate the food I enjoyed. โฃ
I started to find a balance between the things that were optimal for my health and also optimal for my emotional health. โฃ
I started to figure out ways to enjoy a bit and go โ€˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ง๐˜ง ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ฏโ€™ but also get right back on, because that too was part of the plan. โฃ

The next time youโ€™re considering your next diet or plan, I want you to ask yourself if you can see yourself following it a year from now, two years from now, for the next 20 years. ๐˜๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ต ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ท๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ, ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฃ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ซ๐˜ฐ๐˜บ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜บ? โฃ

Here are a few things I did to make my weight loss more sustainable for the long term:ย 

*planned and accounted for a nighttime snackย 

*understood that I preferred carbohydrates and needed to allow for a higher amountย 

*found ways to incorporate foods I genuinely enjoyedย 

*stocked my house initially with options I wouldnโ€™t overeat or boredom eat onย 

*practiced portion controlย 

*made sure I was getting my nutritional bases covered (on the micronutrient level) *this is often an underlooked toolย 

*Allowed myself to calorie cycle if I needed to have a higher calorieย 

*Tracking my weight daily but focusing on weekly averages and progressย 

*Pre-planning my food in myfitnesspalย 

*Setting up my kitchen with convenient easy to prep options I could heat and eat

What is one non-negotiable you need to incorporate in your daily nutrition?
