For some people, they can tell if their nutrition plan is working because they can see the numbers on the scale dropping week by week. Some people purely look at their sports performance as a gauge of if their nutrition plan is working or not.
But constantly getting on the scales and measuring sports performance aren’t strategies that work for everyone.
Over the next few articles we’ll be outlining some of the ways we help our clients figure out if their nutrition plan is working or not without needing to step on the scales or even care that much about performance in or out of the gym…
Do you have more energy?
If struggling through the day is normal, you are constantly pressing snooze on your alarm in the morning and you live for the next hit of caffeine, then maybe it would be a good idea to do a lifestyle audit.
You sound like you’re over stressed and are probably not eating enough vitamins and minerals.
How can you tell if you’re making progress?
You start to control your coffee habit instead of it controlling you.
You wake up a couple of minutes before your alarm and feel pretty sharp.
You are tired in the evening at an appropriate time rather than mid afternoon.
You can keep up with your kids when it’s playtime.
Your energy levels being under control often precedes any kind of fat loss or muscle gain as your body has a chance to actually make changes rather than lurching from energy crashes to false highs.
