If you want to lose weight, cut back on sugar, or clean up your diet, change doesn't start on your plate. Change begins with your mindset.
Here's an example I've encountered, oh, let's say, 500-something times: A client we'll call Joe tells me "I'm really serious this time about losing weight," but he also tells me, "I don't have time for breakfast." What happens most weekdays is that Joe skips breakfast, occasionally taking one of his kid's sugary granola bars, and regularly hits Starbucks around 10:30 or 11 for a giant sugar/calorie-bomb of a coffee drink and a chunk of banana bread. He has a massive sugar crash that sends him looking for sweets in the breakroom before his lunch break.
Joes is not stupid. He knows that a bowl of oatmeal with fruit, or mashed avocado over 100% whole grain bread would be a nutritious start to his day. But he has this old mindset that he has no time for breakfast. It's only when we talk about it that he realizes that this mindset is an obstacle that causes a chain of lousy choices that contradict his weight loss goal.
But if Joe changes his mindset to "Taking just 10 minutes for a decent breakfast sets me up for a healthier start," we can start building new habits that support his weight loss goal.
What old mindset is holding you back from achieving your health and fitness goal?
If you're ready to tackle a mindset that is holding you hostage, let's talk.
