#THEDAILYGRIND EPISODE 2: 7 Steps to Great Nutrition
You can do all the training in the world, but if your nutrition is lacking, so will your results.
The old phrase “you are what you eat” has some merit. Generally speaking, if you meticulously work your way through the takeaway menus stuffed in your kitchen draw one by one throughout the week, you’re probably not going to be the poster boy (or girl) of the next government healthy eating campaign.
Today’s episode of #THEDAILYGRIND is about nutrition and how to make sure that yours is working FOR YOU and not AGAINST YOU. I’d say that this is hands down the biggest problem that people encounter in trying to achieve their fitness goals. The first thought when setting up a new programme is the gym. The motivation is high and that feeling of running, lifting, rowing, pressing, and generally sweating your way through a 60 minute workout gives you an instant sense of satisfaction. You instantly feel like it’s done you some good and that body fat is now just going to melt away.
What I’ve experienced myself is that this is actually the easy bit. Getting the foot in the door at the gym is not actually that hard. Set someone up with a great training programme that is personalised, effective, and fun and it just takes that push of motivation to get the ball rolling. Where the difficulties come is in changing ingrained habits around food and educating people on how to make good food choices throughout the day.
Fail to get the nutrition side of things right and you’re doomed to fail from Day 1. It’s that simple.
But the good news is, it doesn’t need to be as hard and complicated as you might think. If you’re about to kick-start a new training programme, this article is for you. I’m going to walk you through a 7 step process to get your nutrition dialled in and working for you to make those results come quickly.
