Step 3: Nutrition Plan
For this step of the plan to a make over, most people would see a nutritionist first. I decided to take a slightly different approach: a) I came up with my own nutrition plan b) I am going to see a nutritionist in the coming months so that we can fine tune the nutrition plan and see what is missing. So how did I come up with my own nutrition plan and why.
I have reached a point in my life when I needed a cleanse from any junk food as well. As I said these are the steps to a full cleanse: body and soul. Some of you may wonder if weight loss is the primary goal of this steps, well no, the primary goal is to feel healthier and to have a different lifestyle to what I used to have. The eating habits and some of my other lifestyle choices clearly were not working for me before, so it is time for a change. To answer the question how I came up with a nutrition plan, well I have decided to eliminate anything that I felt was saturating my diet and in one case, in particular, I even had to given my favourite coffee shop. So here is what I have removed from my nutrition:
The nutrition plan does have room for a cheat day. I have picked Sunday as my cheat day and I can select one of the items listed above that I have removed from my daily nutrition.
I have implemented this nutrition plan for myself two weeks ago, and I am already feeling much better and healthier. I am tempted to cheat sometimes, I admit, but then I remember that I have made a decision, made a choice and that I am doing this for my own wellbeing. This year, I have truly realised once again, it is like I never learn, that your wellbeing comes before anything else.
