In my first post about consistency, I talked about complicated nutrition plans. If you want to read more, make sure to check out that post: https://www.nutrirev.org/post/how-to-stay-consistent-with-your-nutrition-part-1
In this post, I talk about the second reason that weightlifters have a hard time being consistent with their nutrition plan.
That reason is MINDSET.
What do I mean about that?
Most weightlifters get hung up in trying to stay motivated:
They follow accounts on social media for motivation.
They hire a coach to push them.
They have their friends hold them accountable.
They use photos of "fit" people on the wallpaper of their phone
BUT there's an issue with motivation.
No matter what you do, for MOST people, motivation comes and goes. Motivation is not a stagnant idea. What you have to work on is MINDSET. When you change your mindset, you no longer need motivation to "keep you going".
What's the difference between mindset and motivation?
Mindset is the why
Mindset is looking at something from a deeper level.
Mindset is the way you think, the way you feel, what you believe in.
Mindset is looking at nutrition as a privilege
It is a privilege to nourish my body
It is a privilege to have food readily available in stores and restaurants
It is a privilege to be able to afford to eat every day
It is a privilege to be a part of a sport that makes you feel good
Mindset is something within you.
Motivation is an outside factor. Something that is not always reliable.
When somethings is within you (mindset), you don't have to rely on anything or anyone.
The Lift Your Nutrition Program emphasizes mindset so that you can make nutritional changes for the rest of your life, not just a few weeks, a few months, or a few years. For more information check out my free training video: https://go.nutrirev.org/training-video33640482
