Don't rely on willpower to improve your health and lose weight. Set yourself up for success with

Feel like you're constantly faced with temptations when trying to take care of your health, eat well and try to lose weight?

Feel like eating clean is an uphill battle, testing your willpower every step of the way.

Do you struggle with cravings and the urge to snack after a stressful day, when you're bored, in front of the T.V?

Yep, me too! We all face these challenges and the negative self-talk that follows a moment of weakness. I'm a firm believer of a whole foods, balanced diet but that we should also enjoy an occasional treat. We eat to fuel our bodies and live well but we also eat to celebrate and enjoy the pleasures of taste and satiety.

If you're just starting out in your health improvement journey or you're looking to take that next step in improving your diet, then I suggest you start small and assess what it is you want to achieve and how you want to feel. What are you WILLING to do and NOT WILLING to do?

The body is pretty amazing and resilient. We shouldn't worry about the occasional treat, but the frequency of treats and quantity of treats. Would it be best to never eat a cupcake, pizza or chip again? Probably. But would this be reasonable. Most likely not. If it was, we wouldn't be talking about this.

Think of all the temptations that confront you every day outside your home, constantly testing your willpower and discipline:

  • Chips and dip at social events

  • Brownies and birthday cakes at work

  • Pizza and hot dogs at the game

And just to pour salt on your dietary wounds, you probably pass six drive - thrus or high-calorie coffee shops on your way anywhere.
