Why has our approach to nutrition been successful??
Well it’s very simple really
And we’ve nothing to hide either………..
This is our philosophy
Say No to the Nutrition Plan
Many people that come to us believe good nutrition starts and finishes with ‘meal plans.’
Truth is, meal plans don’t work for the majority of clients. I’ll go through why in a moment….
Now, while we do have heaps of recipes and meal ideas available for our clients, we do not give out meal plans, never have….
Still our private members group is very active with members postings pictures of meals…
There are a number of key problems I commonly see from those trying to constantly adhere to set nutrition plans:
1. It’s not flexible
Nutrition plans are too rigid and are unnecessary for someone simply trying to improve their body and health.
They are therefore too strict and ‘set in stone’ for most people and they result in a HIGH failure rate.
Many also lack variety, which can quickly lead to undernourishment, cravings and diet boredom.
2. Not a long-term solution
If our clients becomes reliant on following a nutrition plan to eat better, then they’ll become dependent on that.
What happens when they are found in a situation that they can’t stick exactly with our plan – like eating out?
If they head down to the Pier Head at the week end, they can’t exactly hand over our meal plan to Mike and say I want this – Imagine the look he’d give you!! Lol…
They’ll probably deviate from what they perceive as ‘healthy eating’ because it doesn’t match their plan, kick starting a spiral of frustration and anxiety.
The result is, they say ‘SCREW IT’ and begin eating everything they like. Over time, this creates a poor relationship with food.
3. They learn nothing
By simply following a nutrition plan, our clients aren’t learning anything. They are just following what we THINK is right for them.
The result is that they fail to tune into their body and listen to the feedback it is giving them.
Instead, our plan tells them to eat ‘x’ food, in ‘y’ quantity at ‘z’ time – but is that really what their body wants and needs? Probably not.
