Nutrition can be very complicated, especially if you have tried to follow “diets” in the past. Oh and how the fitness industry loves making things complicated. From over restrictive, take-all-of-the-fun-out-of-life plans to completely vilifying a whole food group, it seems like someone is always trying to sell you on “their plan.”
Now carbohydrates are bad. Need I remind you that it wasn’t that long ago that fat was the enemy? In my experience, I have seen people have great success following low fat, high fat, low protein, and high protein diets. Did they hold on to their success? That is an entirely different story.
But I digress, and I like to do as much as I can to help you keep things simple. So here is my baseline for nutrition: A good nutrition plan should be sustainable for the rest of your life. Or to put it another way, a nutrition plan should be not just healthy, but also realistic. It should be non-restrictive and give you a feeling of power not powerlessness.
In short, good nutrition should make you look better, feel better and improve your health. It doesn’t need to be complicated.
Have you found YOUR good nutrition plan?
I’d love to hear about it.–
