Ep. 17: How to Turn Healthy Eating into a Sustainable Habit
In your mind, what does "healthy eating" look like?
For a lot of people it means cutting calories, controlling portion sizes, eating bland foods, and it's just not sexy. But what if healthy eating could mean eating the foods you love, having foods with lots of flavor, and never feeling guilty about your food choices?
Now that sounds a lot more appealing.
The only time I used to eat "healthy" was for weight loss purposes, and I didn't know any other way. I couldn't understand why people would choose to torture themselves for any other reason than to lose weight.
That was until I learned what healthy eating meant for me and my body. (Hint: It's not the restriction based approach we're used to). When I attended IIN for health coaching school and learned about bioindividuality...meaning what works for some doesn't always work for everyone...it changed everything.
Knowing that term helped me determine what my own version of healthy looked like. And instead of cutting out foods, I learned to add in vibrant, delicious, nutrient-filled foods. My point here? You can still be a foodie just like me, while enjoying a variety of foods and prioritizing health.
In this episode we'll discuss what most people think of healthy eating (including you), then I'll take you through some actionable tips to help you reframe your mindset around this concept so that you can begin implementing nutrient-rich foods on the regular...while you say goodbye to the food guilt and confusion you might be feeling right now.
Let's get to it!
