Ever struggled to lose weight? Or struggled to stick to a diet? No worries, most people have.  We get so caught up in trying to change everything at once. Eat less, exercise more, drink water, cut the sugar, and ban the booze.

Problem is, we’ve developed our eating habits over a lifetime. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that a lifetime of habits rarely change overnight.  So what do we do? We take it one step at a time. You’ll learn how to be lean the same way you’d learn math… but a little more enjoyable!

Habit Based Nutrition

On a side – did you brush your teeth this morning? Was it hard? Did it feel like a chore? Or did you just do it? The reason I ask is because this is what we need your nutrition to be like; A set of automatic behaviours that you do every day. Like taking a shower or getting dressed.

And the only way to make good eating ‘automatic’ is by building new habits. So we use habit based coaching. We look at what you need to do to achieve your goal, break it down into a set of simple, manageable habits and get you to practice each new habit every day for two weeks.

After two weeks your new habit will be part of your routine. And the good news is a habit doesn’t take much will power. In the words of Nike – you just do it.

A New Habit Every Two Weeks

So every couple of weeks you’ll get a new daily habit. All you need to do is practice the habit every day and tick it off on your adherence chart to let us know you’ve done it. It’s too easy to forget to do something so simple. So we use the tick chart as a reminder. It’ll also help us measure how well you’re doing with your new habit.

Once you’ve made two weeks of doing your habit every day, we move on. And only then do we introduce a new habit. We’ve done all the thinking for you… All you need to do is act.

Your daily habit forms the foundation of your nutrition plan. So for now, don’t worry about what your new habits might be. We’ll tell you all in good time. Just know that you’re in safe hands.
