The poison of Excuses
We all have excuses for things in our lives that we don’t want to do. Some excuses have more impact than others. Making excuses for poor diet and nutrition may be the most detrimental to your life and have the greatest impact on your health. Many people don’t start to make changes to their diet until it’s too late. They’ve suffered a heart attack or have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, or some metabolic disease. But what if you could start making changes now and prevent some of these things before they happen? Don’t let your excuses ruin your health.
Decide to change
If you want to change something you have to decide what it is that you are willing to do to make that change happen. You have to have a strong resolve and be firm on the changes you will make. You can’t be wishy-washy and unsure of your ability to stick with it. You have to decide to do something and follow through with it no matter what. The first step is to set realistic goals and habit changes. Don’t expect an instant fix served on a silver platter. It doesn’t work like that.
Change is hard
Changing your habits, especially eating habits, is a hard thing to do. If you have eaten a certain way your entire life and have certain habits that are ingrained in you, it may be very difficult to change those, especially if you do it alone. Will power only goes so far. Accountability, on the other hand, can be the game-changer you’ve been missing. When you have support and guidance you will keep going when you want to give up. Would you rather climb a mountain alone or with a guide showing you the best way to the top?
Changing isn’t easy. It is hard work, but in the end, it is more rewarding than anything else you will do. It pays off with longer, healthier life. But you don’t have to figure it out on your own. Book a FREE nutrition consult and make the changes you and your body need.
