If anything on this list rings true with you then get in touch with us and let us know how we can help you.
4 – You avoid fruit and vegetables
The popular diet If It Fits Your Macros can do wonders for body composition changes, but any way of eating that is truly sustainable and health focused should also focus on micronutrients. Your energy levels, immune system and exercise recovery rates can all be boosted by focusing on the micros. If you’re not supporting your body with the vitamins and minerals that it needs through diet, where are you hoping to get them from?
5 – You fail to prepare
It is rare that someone has a truly unpredictable schedule that totally controls their food choices, food availability and meal timings. If you’re making something to eat in the evening, could you easily make a bit more and have your lunch ready for the next day with no extra effort? Even if you don’t really know which end of a knife to hold or how to operate an oven there are meal preparation services that can help you out. One of our favourites is PrepKitchen and you can even save 10% off every order with the code JONAH10.
6 – You focus on all the things that you are trying to limit in your diet
If you decide to adopt a new way of eating that removes certain foods or food groups but then focus your energy and time thinking about those things instead of all the things you can now eat you’re setting yourself up for a hard time. It is human nature to focus on the things you can’t have, so why not build a nutrition plan that doesn’t have any foods that are off limits to alleviate mental stress?
