When it comes to your waistline, your nutrition has a direct impact on its size. Like it or not, you are directly responsible for where you are. I know this may sound harsh, but I feel obligated to give it to you straight.
Before you eat another bite of food, please steer clear of these four nutrition mistakes:
“I will start on Monday.” I’ve heard this line used so many times. Why wait to get results until Monday when you can get results now? It’s a form of self-sabotage and you must avoid it at all costs. It’s very easy to become a victim of this injustice to yourself.
“I’ll have just one drink.” One drink of soda or alcoholic beverage usually leads to another. It’s like the potato chip slogan, and believe me, you WILL go for more than one. The next time you find yourself saying this, please splash your face with cold water and focus.
“It’s gluten free so I can eat it. “ Just because it’s gluten free does not mean you can eat the whole thing. I’ve seen people go out of their way to maintain a gluten free lifestyle, only to wreak havoc on their bodies by eating an enormous amount of food without concomitant exercise. Gluten free foods still contain calories, and if you don’t keep it controlled, your waistline will increase relative to your consumption.
“I eat 3 square meals a day.” This is a common mistake, especially for those over 40 years of age. While eating 3 square meals a day may have served you well when you were a child, your metabolism and blood sugar regulation is not the same as it was then. It’s time to get away from that mentality and listen to your body. Have a small snack between meals for better glucose regulation and your waistline will thank you.
I challenge you to stop making these nutrition mistakes and see how your body responds.
I remain, committed to your success,
