Counting, tracking, cutting, restricting.
For many of us, these are expected effects of trying to reach a healthy weight.
Any attempt to look and feel healthier is going to come along with forcing ourselves to eat less.
Dealing with constantly thinking about food because we’re never satisfied.
This is actually why many of us just give up.
It’s not worth it.
Why even put in the effort to lose that spare tire if we’re going to be miserable all the time?
What good is reaching some arbitrary shape or size if life sucks?
These are valid questions.
But what if there’s a better way?
What if there’s a reason that your appetite is driving you to eat?
What if it’s because you’re not eating enough of the right things?
What if you could make changes to what you eat that helped make easier the changes to how much you eat?
What if eating the right amount to look and feel awesome weren’t miserable?
What if your body is asking for more quantity because it’s not getting what it needs in terms of quality?
What if the issue isn’t food at all?
What if you could trust your appetite?
There are steps you can take to make that happen:
– More protein
– More vegetables
– More water
– Less processed food
– More sleep
– More mindfulness
Practice it consistently.
See how you feel.
Adjust, if necessary.
Of course, these are just general rules of thumb.
You might already be nailing one or more of them.
You might find that one of them doesn’t do anything for you.
You might find your problem is completely unrelated to any of these issues.
You’ll never know until you try.
See what life’s like when consistently nailing these steps.
See what life’s like without white-knuckling your way through hunger.
You’re worth the effort.
You’re worth the experiment.
You are worthy.
You’re got this.
