Want to be healthier? Look at your habits.
When I see one-on-one clients, most of them come to me wanting to “get healthy & lose weight” WITHOUT being on some kind of strict, fad diet. Ultimately those strict diets don’t work & just leave you feeling emotionally fatigued and usually worse off than when you started.
So what I teach my clients instead is called LIFESTYLE NUTRITION. The cornerstone of how LIFESTYLE NUTRITION works is to focus on HABITS instead of obsessing about the scale, counting calories in apps, restricting food groups, or weighing & measuring food.
I do a HABITS INVENTORY with clients to see what HABITS are strong and which ones need practice. Together we pick 1, 2 or 3 habits they WANT to start working on first.
Review the following LIFESTYLE HABITS.
What habits are you strongest with?
What habits do you WANT to improve?
✅ Eat 3 meals/day
✅ Meals are similar in size (not all at night)
✅ Meals w/ table-plate-chair (mindful)
✅ Meals in right ratio (protein + produce + starch + fat)
✅ Meals balance health + enjoyment
✅ Snacks w/ table-plate-chair (not grazing)
✅ Snacks are protein + produce
✅ Listen to hunger & fullness cues
✅ “B” student on weekdays, weekends, social events
✅ Dining out for pleasure, not convenience
✅ Sugar is pleasurable & not in excess
✅ Drink enough water (pee is light yellow)
✅ Exercise (daily movement)
✅ Sleep (~8 hours/night)
MEASURING & TRACKING HABITS
Measuring & tracking progress is important. But DIET CULTURE has us measuring & tracking the WRONG THINGS.
When you practice LIFESTYLE NUTRITION, you are measuring & tracking HABITS instead of the scale, calories, or macros.
