Nutrition Tip: Food Is Not For Fun

SATURDAY

Time and time again we hear the same old excuses as to why someone stopped eating healthy or struggles to eat healthy:

“It’s just so boring”

When you say this, you’re exposing the biggest problem with your lifestyle…

You look to food for fun.

We’re not saying that food can’t be a fun experience. There is a time and place for that most definitely. But should it be an “experience” every meal? NO.

Not only does this complicate your relationship with food, but it also keeps you from creating healthier habits.

Doesn’t it make sense that if you ate healthy and simple 90% of the time, that food would be more enjoyable when dining out, trying a new recipe, or going to an event? Wouldn’t that make it an actual experience?

Try to avoid going out to eat for 2-4 weeks and prepare your own HEALTHY meals. At the end of the two weeks, pick a restaurant and grab a bite to eat with family and friends. See if you can feel the difference.

You’ll feel better about your health and feel less guilty about food because you eat healthy 90% of the time! Not to mention, you’ll have a lot more cash in the bank.

We are in control of our brain even though it doesn’t feel like it at times. Decide what you want and fight for it. No one does CrossFit without expecting results. Don’t let your dinner plate hold you back from the progress you work hard for!

This is super simple.  4 ounces Smoked salmon.  40g almonds. 2 cups veggies. 3 cups strawberries. Little to no brain power needed. Salmon was bought smoked. Veggies were cooked in an oven in bulk. The entire meal is less than 600 calories and keeps my full for 4-5 hours minimum. This is following the RP simplified diet I posted earlier this week. When you eat like this 90% of the time, a hamburger and french fries with a cold beer is earth shaking. Work harder to find your balance. There is no excuse other than not trying hard enough.
