You know lots about nutrition but you don’t put it into practice.
You like to read a lot: blogs, articles, books… You’re always googling something about food and nutrition that you want to feel more educated about.
If someone asked you what healthy eating is, you feel like you could easily answer them. Unfortunately, you struggle to put that information into practice and find that you just don’t make healthy food choices everyday.
Maybe you have a few ‘good’ days every now and then, but they don’t last and you’d definitely describe yourself as inconsistent.
The problem is, the more you read and learn about nutrition the higher your expectations become of what a healthy diet looks like.
It must have 5 serves of vegetables, 2 serves of fruit, 2L of water, high fibre carbs, sufficient protein, whole foods, the right energy, smarts snacks… phew! And that’s the good advice. The deeper you delve the more restrictive things become. No gluten. No sugar. Green smoothies. Carnivore? Keto? Vegan?
With so much to achieve, where do you start?
At Ayla Health, we teach our clients nutrition from a behaviour change perspective. You see, psychology says: If you know something, but don’t do it, it’s likely due to the following reasons:
1. You don’t WANT to do it.
2. You don’t know HOW to do it.
3. Your expectations are too HIGH.
The third reason is really important when it comes to your nutrition. If your expectations of what a ‘healthy diet’ is, is too high, then you will procrastinate taking any action. When something feels too much to achieve, because we don’t want to fail, we don’t bother trying at all!
What can you do about it?
What’s the point of high expectations if it means you don’t actually do it? If you’re keen to kick your procrastination in the butt, then it’s time to lower the bar of expectation so you can take action.
Our Online Program teaches you the fundamental aspects of dietary change!
