It’s not the calm sunny day that moves our sails from point A to B

You are bombarded with a million misconceptions about proper nutrition, it’s no wonder you have a screwed up relationship with it!
#
To be honest I have NO idea what kind of new trend is on the market these days, but what I DO know is the science at it’s core & even further, how to apply it.
#
You see, science doesn’t change a whole lot from year to year, & because of that, it’s not sexy.
#
It’s hard to sell 100 thousand diet books if they are all about the same boring shit like feeling healthy & eating an adequate amount for what you do.
#
Guess what guys (& I know this is going to be a surprise for some of you), but the results you so desperately desire come from long-term consistency, NOT short term intensity.
#
I know, shocker, right?
#
That extreme Paleo/Whole30 gym challenge you do every year is NOT the answer?
#
By the way, how is that working for you?
#
Let me ask you, does this sound familiar, “well I tried the Paleo challenge & saw results, but it just wasn’t sustainable so I’m right back at square one.”
#
It seems to me there is a common factor behind all of these short-term diets…
#
They ain’t “sustainable”
#
So gong further… my question for you is, “what are you doing right now?”
#
My guess is you’re probably eating relatively healthy with some sugar cravings here & a few drinks scattered there.
#
Here’s a radical idea, what if we just stuck to that, but cleaned it up a little?
#
Sounds like a pretty awesome start to a sustainable way of living!
#
But again, it’s not sexy, it’s not fast, & most of all it’s not MISERABLE…
#
Why does eating have to be so miserable? Why do we feel like we have to starve ourselves? Are we unworthy to eat a good amount of healthy food?
#
A very interesting concept to ponder…
#
So I guess what I’m trying to do here is bring about some self-awareness.
#
What is your initial thoughts when I say food?
#
>>Are they positive, exciting & nourishing?
#
>>Or instead, are they gluttonous, forbidden, & dreadful?
#
I challenge you to think about your relationship with food. For most of you it’s painful & resentful…
#
It doesn’t have to be that way forever – don’t numb it out – don’t bury it deep – feel it now & push through it!
#
It’s not the calm sunny day that moves our sails from point A to B, it’s the intense wind & the rough waters that get us to where we need to be.

Be mindful & embrace the suck 😉
