Many people want to start a healthy nutrition plan and live a healthier lifestyle. What does “healthy eating” or “good nutrition” look like to you? I bet if you asked 20 people, you’d get 20 different answers. Some might think good nutrition means eating fewer carbs or less sugar. Other people may suggest eating less meat, and more fruits and vegetables. There are SO many different schools of thought when it comes to healthy eating and good nutrition. But what is the answer? Does 1 correct answer, that applies to all people, even exist?
The words “good” and “healthy” are somewhat subjective, and hold different meanings for different people. The question that you may want to ask yourself prior to starting a healthy eating plan is:
“What do I hope to accomplish with my nutrition plan?”
Seriously, this is super important because if you don’t know what results you want … you won’t know if you are headed in the right direction or worse yet … your journey may be short lived. Honestly, this is a question you should be asking yourself every few weeks or months to make sure you are remaining true to your goals.
All good nutrition plans should accomplish 4 things simultaneously:
- Improve your health
- Improve your performance
- Improve your body composition
- Improve your confidence
Maybe you have health issue that need to be addressed and resolved. Hippocrates said it best, “Let food by thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.” A nutrition plan should help you improve your overall health and well-being.
