One of the biggest killers of progress in your fitness, fat-loss and health goals is the nutritional component; as you are all probably very well aware. Oftentimes people get that they need to move well and more often, but for some reason they never grasp the concept of changing what they eat. This fact can often lead to frustration and quitting or beginning the process of overreaching in their training, looking to more exercise as a way to get the results that they crave.

As always this downward spiral can be avoided if the trainee just uses their head and the easy concept of switching in their nutrition program. This post will show you how to do just that in a progressive way that will keep you getting results throughout their training and fitness. Do you want to finally make a permanent change? Read on if so.

 

 

The first thing that we need to understated if we want to change is that we have to realize that we operate on habits. Just to better understand what that is here is a simple definition from an online dictionary:

ˈhabət/
noun
plural noun: habits
  1. 1.
    a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.
    “this can develop into a bad habit

 

Based on this definition a habit is something that we’ve developed by practice. So the first step that we have to make towards change is to take responsibility for our habits and the decisions that we made to develop them and that help maintain their control in our lives. As you know the new year is here and you may actually be reflecting on your habits and wanting change; but not knowing what to do or where to go to change. You may also be aware of your inability in the past to change and feel powerless to do anything to stop your poor nutrition and or of lack of exercise habits. That is where this point comes in: A progressive switching of bad habits for better ones!

You see we often make two mistakes we want to change:

One, we try to do everything at once and end up burning out.

Two, we see all our habits and get discouraged and quit before we even start.

Instead of these two extremes, let’s take this New Year to try a different approach. One that will work  and finally get us to our goals in 2015!

Here is what you will if that is the case: find one habit that isn’t super intimidating and stop doing that thing or cut back by a bit on it. In other words, if you eat ice cream everyday either stop eating it or cut back to three days a week. Now don’t stop there. Replace your ice cream eating with a better food such as fruits or vegetables that you like. Or you can start being active during that time period where you would normally eat ice cream. This is simple, take a walk with your family, do some kettlebells swings or push-ups and so-on. The endorphins released due to your new activity will be a reward for you and before you know it, you will have created a new habit without straining too much!

 

It is that simple and challenging friends just continue to follow this principle and keep switching out old negative habits for new positive and healthy ones. Before you know it, you will be at your goals and finally will break the cycle of resolution and defeat of the last few years! Make 2015 your year by progressively changing and making the switch from your old habits to new ones!
