Welcome to your chance to tweak your diet.
We should be offering you the chance to loose kilo’s of weight overnight, with no effort, and become a model, or at least get abs that stick out, or cure cancer.
Here is the problem: People who rush at healthy eating with a short term delusional goal quickly give up. After all, you have spent years designing your current, slightly rubbish , slightly obesogenic, slightly cancerous and slightly inflammatory diet.
It’s unlikely that you’ll change it overnight , no matter how up for a change you claim to be, or how motivational your new diet guru is.
What you ideally need to do is to understand the general structure of what a healthier diet looks like, gets some applicable principles, understand how you currently eat, then nudge your diet in the right direction.
Not very motivational and hyped. I know. The only thing that recommends this approach is its devastating effectiveness.
As a mechanical eating task , this isn’t particularly difficult. Nudges require the merest, tiniest effort to achieve.
“try eating the apple , not the deep fried mars bar ” is often touted as great advice .
Gosh who knew.
But if we can get you to , drop the sweets, and rather than opt for the apple, opt for the apple, and a bit of lean protein and a bit of healthy fat, you are well on your way to an effective, nutritious, healthy, life supporting food plan, that you can tweak and personalise.
Obviously if you are using food as an emotional and psychological crutch in an addictive way , that’s a big game changer and you’ll need extra support, but for now, if you can get the basics loaded in, it makes helping you easier.
Our zone class has been developed over many many years.
Whilst its not a spectacular offer, if you come along, having read some information (download it here), and having recorded what you have eaten and drank over a week you’ll get the best possible start to a healthier happier eating regime.
We will discuss some general, standard, macro principles ( that often comes as a shock to most fad diet junkies) , then you’ll analyse how you currently eat, and then see how you can tweak and nudge your current diet to accommodate them.
Its one hour of community fun games, education and effective do-able strategies. Come prepared to discuss and share ( or sit morosely at the back of the room:we have all sorts here). It costs the same as your normal class.
Next session, Saturday 3rd December 2pm. Non crossfitters and those on level 1 welcome
