Healthy Choices Aren’t Hard

I have tell you the truth…

Choosing to eat healthy isn’t hard.

Anytime someone says to me ‘It’s so hard to eat healthy!’ I totally get it. It is hard mentally to make changes in a positive direction. But actually eating healthier… not really that hard.

YES – there is temptation everywhere.

YES – we are busy and want convenience.

YES – other people might not have the same goals as you if those goals are around improving health or weight loss.

You already know what to do.

You know salad is a better option than a big mac.

You know that the grilled chicken is a better choice than the fried chicken.

We know what to do – it is the implementation, commitment, and follow-through that is so hard.

And – I think that there are 2 reasons.

  1. As humans, we are wired to crave fatty, salty, and sweet – those are just things that our palates like. It’s science.
  2. We tell ourselves that eating right and taking care of ourselves is hard. It is a story that we have told ourselves for so long that we actually believe it.

But – making healthier choices – choosing the grilled instead of the fried – is actually quite easy if you think about it. Literally…

Committing to always putting the better nutrition into your body will have drastic results that will compound over time.

And it all starts with telling yourself a different story.

When you say or think “it’s hard” just remember how easy it actually is – it’s just a matter of following through, and… you are so worth it, my friend.

Let me know if this little mindset shift helps.
