I really don’t like the word diet, but it does get attention! What I’m asking is, if the way you are eating to achieve your goal is right for you?
I apply three main criteria when I’m drawing up a nutrition plan with a client.
- Is it healthy?
- Will it achieve the desired result?
- Is it sustainable in the long term?
Because I don’t believe that one size fits all, flexibility is required, as is getting to know my clients and figuring out what is sustainable for each of them. Where one client will be super organised and find it easy to follow their plan, another client with a similar plan and who isn’t naturally an organised person, will struggle.
Then we have to find ways to make their plan work.
Some people like to eat 5 or 6 times a day. Some people only like to eat twice a day. Some people love high (healthy) fat food and are happy to shun most carbs, whereas for other people that isn’t the way that works best for them.
We all want effortless, we all want easy, but the reality is that we all have to work at getting in shape and staying there. Food is always the biggest part of the weight loss and well-being equation. What we put in our mouth not only determines how we look, but also how we feel and how we perform.
Low Carb, High (Healthy) Fat Lifestyle
Probably around 40% of my new clients are interested in trying the Low Carb High (healthy) Fat way of eating. The benefits of eating this way are generally
- less cravings
- less hunger and more satisfaction
- lower blood glucose levels
- lower triglycerides (bad, sticky fats)
- lower inflammation in the body and
- the food is simple and delicious.
But, it is a way of life, so your commitment is to stay low carb and not dabble in a bit of each!
