That’s a lot of what we stress in our Nutrition Coaching program. A lot of people know the right things to do; they just don’t know how to apply them in their lives. And that’s where we offer strategies to do so.
Here’s a good example. A client knows she needs more protein for breakfast. “I don’t have time to cook in the morning,” she said. “So I eat cereal.” Our suggestion was to have some hard-boiled eggs already prepared that she can take and grab them on the go. Instant protein! So it was a question of “how” to accomplish her “what” of getting more protein at breakfast. And BTW, our client lost 8 pounds fairly quickly after adding the additional protein.
I think the “how” is just as important as the “what.” Here’s another example. “I can’t possibly drink 60 ounces of water a day.” Our fix for this is to offer a how – drink 2 glasses before breakfast, 2 before lunch, and 2 before dinner. That doesn’t feel as overwhelming as 60 ounces, and it’s concrete and tangible.
Hungry between dinner and lunch and can’t really eat at work? Drink a protein shake.
Don’t have time to go the gym today? That’s okay – everybody can find a way to do the basics – push, pull, squat – at home. It doesn’t have to be an hour of exercise every day.
