Because, I’ve had quite a few people message me from some of the screen shots i’ve put up of our client’s daily food and what they want to eat, and still achieving their goals.
Because, I have to say, I absolutely hate the whole “clean eating thing’.
And, I’m going to be brutally honest here, I don’t really like vegetables, and I often find a lot of the fruit that I want to eat isn’t really worth the carbohydrates. It’s got in it haha.
So for me, I would rather be able to follow a flexible dieting plan that means I can enjoy my favorite foods and have knowledge that I’m not going backwards, and have knowledge that I’m still going to be working towards my goals. That’s why I’m not a fan of diet plans.
But what we do do is a macro nutrient breakdown to help clients work towards their goals.
But this can change on a daily or weekly basis, depending on how they respond.
Because I remember I used to always love to know what I was going to eat for the next 12 weeks in my prep, for the next three weeks of my prep. But I could never get given the answer, because we didn’t know how my body was going to respond. And that’s the key, because we all respond differently, sometimes things need to get tweaked and changed different to each other. And that’s the most important thing to remember. Getting a diet plan for 4, 6, or 12 weeks really isn’t going to help you, because:
1. It doesn’t give you the knowledge.
2. What happens if your body isn’t responding after a few weeks, and you carry on that same diet plan, you could be wasting that 8 or 12 weeks. Or, what if the results that you’re getting are really, really fast, and then you start to plateau because you haven’t made any adaptations to that diet that you’ve seen some dramatic results in the first few weeks. And then it leaves you a feeling of frustration and fed up.
Why am I sharing this with you, because I don’t want you to fall for the diet plan trap.
I want you to understand more about nutrition.
I want you to understand more about how you can enjoy your favorite foods and still achieve your goals. Because that is 100% realistic, and it is 100% safe and healthy to do so. It’s all about understanding and following it through.
