#Curb365- it’s all about MODERATION in Moderation.
See there seems to be this HUGE myth still going around in regards to Nutrition & Fitness. The ‘Clean Eating’ Myth. a.k.a. #Bullshit
I cannot wait till the Bro Method retires. Seeeriousssllllyyy. That method is pure MADNESS. The true definition of insanity is to keep doing something over & over expecting different results. (I don’t understand why I’m struggling with this diet, I mean last time I dropped 20lbs in 3 weeks. I’m thinking it’s my Willpower or maybe I need to do MORE cardio & cut MORE calories, because obv-) #Sarcasm
I mean- I can call it like it is, because I have lived it & BARELY survived it.
My ears BURN whenever I hear people talking about eating ‘clean’.
The reason being that the minute we associate a moral label to our food choices, then those labels inevitably transfer to us.
Example: If I eat a salad. = I ate ‘Clean’. Meaning I AM good, because I made a good decision.
If I eat an ice-cream cone =I ate a ‘Bad’ food & therefore I AM bad. So then I have way more chances to say eff it and go on a bender because I feel Guilt which then leads to Shame which will push me further down the Shame Spiral and it is harder to pick myself up from that. #ViciousCycle
Another point here is that once we remove the moral labels & switch our perspective from a Restricted one to an Abundant one, then the Cravings & all those ‘Cheat Days’ slowly start to vanish. WHY? Because there are NO FOODS OFF LIMITS.
I’m not debating that there are foods MORE Nutritiously Optimal as there are foods LESS Nutritiously Optimal. What I am debating is the Perspective & Mindset that we view each.
The best example I have is to follow any ‘Fitspo’ and you will see just how ‘HARDCORE’ they are with all the Restricting & Depriving until they inevitably break & have those Massive CHEAT DAYS. Again, proving my point that ALL or NOTHING always gets you NOTHING!
Why do we think having a few pieces of chocolate is bad, yet packing back 1000’s + of calories in one sitting is ok?
DUDE- Are you for real?
It’s the way I eat today, how I ate last week, how I’ll eat in 6 months from now, heck I can guarantee I’ll eat this way in 6 years from now. NOTE: Holidays are meant to be enjoyed not Cheated with- remove that word “Cheat” it sounds so negative! #AbundanceMindset
C-Cravings. We all have them. This is why I like to enjoy Buffer Foods. These foods help take the edge off of being so hardcore- I can tell you that once you insert Buffer Foods into your day, you will build Self-Trust & Resiliency & eventually those cravings will become non-existent.
U-Unique. Eat food that you like & Do training that you like. It is Unique to YOU. Enough of this ‘No Pain No Gain’ & that ‘A taste on the lips, forever on the hips’…Those statements are false & so detrimental to that precious Mindset of yours.
R- Stop Restricting & Start Respecting your body, Mind, Heart & Soul.
B- Body. You only have one body, one life. It’s about Honouring that.
Besides, there isn’t only 1 way to have a body.
365- There is no ON or OFF anymore. It’s about learning to get comfortable in the ‘greys’ of life. This is THE Livable Lifestyle.
And lastly, when it comes to Health & Overall Wellness know that this is not one-dimensional. It is not a size, shape or a number. Ultimate Health comes from a Healthy Mind. A Healthy Heart. A Healthy Soul.
I mean anyone can prescribe a Meal plan- there is absolutely NO skill there.
In fact, I used to prescribe Meal Plans & then beat myself up because I wasn’t even able to stick to my own damn plan!#EffPerfection
And truth be told- I hated telling someone else what they should do for their own body-
That’s when I decided to be Coach. I want to Empower someone to choose foods & exercise that feels good to that person. No more one size fits all approach- Now that’s a Coach.#KnowledgeIsPower
I mean, it’s worth a try right? You can always go back to the old way of doing things. #SufferingIsAChoice
It is true what they say though: Get the Mind right & the Rest will follow.
The key lies in healing your relationship with food & also healing your relationship with your Body Image.
Because let me tell you that you have SO much more to offer the world then just your body!
