There are 2 reasons that weightlifters are not consistent:
1. Their nutrition plan is too complicated
2. They're lacking mindset
Let's talk about complicated nutrition plans in this post, then a whole other post deserves the mindset portion.
A "perfect diet" should not be one that:
You get on and off of
You only "stick to" during the week
Involves measuring out your nuts and veggies
When you're thinking about changing your diet (eating pattern), think to yourself:
Is this sustainable?
Do I have feelings of guilt around food when I eat this way?
Am I truly nourishing my body physically AND physiologically?
It's much easier said than done, but with the right coach, you can use your current eating pattern and improve it by ADDING not SUBTRACTING to your diet. This is the key to improving nutrition and it WORKS!
When we restrict ourselves, we actually make the thing that we are restricting more appealing than it really is.
Have you ever heard of the saying "Don't tell kids they CAN'T, or DON'T" because then they do the exact opposite?
Well even though you are not a child, this psychological mechanism still stands.
The more you say I can't eat this, I can't have that, the more you will crave that food.
