6 Components of Success & Common Pitfalls - The Nutrition Series S7Ep2

Reaching our goals through nutrition comes with common pitfalls.  Help us arm you with tips to overcome these common obstacles.  

First and foremost, as with training, we apply a minimum effective dose framework, whether you want to primarily gain muscle or lose body fat.  This means, we don’t cut calories to 1200 or double your calories.  We first observe so we can understand your habits, metabolism, and intake.  We then can recommend small, realistic changes to begin progressing you toward your goals.  This cannot and should not be rushed.  We don’t want to play all of our cards and end up with stalled progress and little or nothing more we can do.  

The biggest issues come from lack of preparation and meeting hunger or a surprise challenge, such as someone offering a treat or confronting what you do with the food left on your kids’ plate.  Developing plans for these things that align with your goals and nutrition plan helps you through these obstacles and help prevent backslide and regret, ultimately helping you achieve your goals faster.  

Tips to combat these are having emergency meals or snacks if you get hungry--at home or on the go.  Portion out foods ahead of time.  With complicated foods--such as lasagna or a stew--weigh & measure it once so you have the information.  The initial work will enable you to better understand your calorie intake.
