Turn on any news station or read any magazine this time of year, and you will hear people sharing their weight loss success stories on this diet or that technique.
First of all, weight loss is not the ONLY goal someone should have. In fact, it should really be a secondary result of living a healthier – longer – life.
Before you jump on the keto or paleo bandwagon, you need to address any deficiencies in your diet. More than 80 percent of the population has at least one nutritional deficiency.
If your body is lacking something it needs, it simply will not function properly — and that makes any health or fitness goal a lot harder.
So, to eliminate deficiencies, the first thing you must do is clean up your diet a bit.
Get plenty of vitamins and minerals
Make sure you are getting enough protein and healthy fats
Drink more water
Establishing optimal eating habits one step at a time allows you to create a sustainable change – and stop jumping from diet to diet every New Year.
Once nutritional deficiencies are addressed and you feel you are eating a well-balanced diet, then you can start to focus on calories, macro breakdowns, portions, etc.
Need a little extra help with figuring out HOW to make these changes? I would be more than happy to jump on the phone with you to see if it is the right fit.
