Do you struggle to meal prep every weekend?
Do you do really well Monday through Friday and struggle on the weekends?
Do you try to eat incredibly clean, throw out everything in your kitchen, only to find it back there in 2 weeks?
I see this often with clients, and was guilty of it myself for years.
I’d fight to follow the “perfect” diet.
Or eat for my “optimal” health.
Or just keep up with the latest, keto, paleo, atkins, weight watchers trend of the week.
I’d struggle to sustain it.
Sure I could follow it for a week and lose 5lbs, but I’d quickly find myself back where I started, beating myself up even more because I couldn’t see it through.

Instead of looking for the “𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘵” 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.
I started to incorporate the food I enjoyed.
I started to find a balance between the things that were optimal for my health and also optimal for my emotional health.
I started to figure out ways to enjoy a bit and go ‘𝘰𝘧𝘧 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘯’ but also get right back on, because that too was part of the plan.
I slowed down and got a whole lot more realistic with my expectations.

The next time you’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. 𝘐𝘴 𝘪𝘵 𝘨𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘰 𝘷𝘢𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯, 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘢 𝘣𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘬, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘦𝘯𝘫𝘰𝘺 𝘤𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘰𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘣𝘪𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘥𝘢𝘺?
Because reality is, if you’re struggling to stay the course now, 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐍 if you do by some chance, lose the weight, how will you ever sustain it?
Focus on the long game.
Focus on your personal needs, not what works for everyone else.
And understand that this is going to be a 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘺𝘭𝘦, not just your next diet plan.
