It’s not enough to say, “I’m never going to make a bad nutrition choice again” in order for change to stick. In today’s episode, we’re understanding why we make the decisions we do, and how to make lasting changes that stick.
You know when you want something? Let’s for this example go with: I want to lose 10 pounds.
In this scenario, it’s usually that we KNOW what to do to get what we want:
We come up with a grocery list, spend 2 hours on a Saturday prepping next weeks’ meals… and then… we eat pancakes, with syrup.
And then… we eat a leftover candy cane we found in our purse…
And then Betty invites us out for pizza, and we can’t say no to Betty…
WHY CAN’T I STICK TO MY GOALS?!
Is yelled out into the abyss on our drive home from work.
Ok, we made it 2 hours into the new plan…
Well, I’m happy to inform you this pattern doesn’t just plague you. It happens to so many of us that there’s a whole branch of nutrition called Behavioral Nutrition that tackles this very thing.
I interviewed my friend Lauren (she’s a super-smart practitioner with a PhD in Behavioral Nutrition) about the behavioral struggles behind the ketogenic diet, and how we can overcome them to align our goals with our actions.
The interview is one of my favorites.
If setting goals is easy for you, but the followthrough is less than optimal, this interview we prepared may be just what you need.
I’m so thankful I get to prepare these sorts of things for you, weekly!
