WHAT SHOULD YOU EAT?
Choosing which foods will benefit us most can be difficult. Maintaining self-control is another issue. Dieting can often leave us feeling demotivated and miserable. When faced with 'forbidden' foods we can feel overwhelmed with desire which leads to an inner battle with ourselves. By learning how to manage your diet, what foods you should limit and those which can be enjoyed in abundance, you can create a new way of eating that you can feel good about instead of feeling deprived.
WHAT TO EXPECT
CURRENT DIETARY CHOICES
The initial consultation offers an opportunity to establish the positive and negative aspects of your diet, any social and environmental influences, and identify any behavioural changes that need to be made. We will put together a plan tailored to your lifestyle and your goals with a view to forming new habits and making positive every-day choices.
THE RIGHT APPROACH FOR YOU
Looking at your lifestyle, what foods you enjoy, and what potential obstacles may crop up will help in structuring a healthy diet that you can enjoy without feeling deprived. Rather than implementing unrealistic and unmanageable changes, we will work out what simple improvements will have the most impact. This doesn't have to mean going without the foods you love, it's just a case of giving these foods their place in your diet that doesn't affect your health and fitness goals. I want for you to want to make the right choices for yourself and finding what will help you when it comes to decision making is all part of the process.
STAYING IN CONTROL
My aim is to remove negative feelings and potential guilt and to arm you with the tools to make wise food choices so you can enjoy a diet that you feel good about while feeling in total control. One of the most effective ways to stick to a goal is to remember what you want and WHY you want it. Focus on the outcome you wish for, keep in mind an overview of your diet and a game plan to cope with those unforseen social invitations or times you are caught short without any healthy food options. This approach will help give you the ability to manage your diet in a way that is best for you.
