After working with a number of athletes and training myself, there are things you can do to prevent failure. To make sure you have no excuses. To make sure every day you are bettering yourself and growing as a person.
One area where a lot of people struggle is nutrition. Weather you follow a High Carb Low Fat, High Protein Low Crab, Intermittent Fasting, Paleo or CBL they struggle to follow the plan and often fall off the train.
Below is 4 key points that will help you succeeding in achieving your goals;
1. KNOW YOUR PLAN
You need to understand your Nutrition plan 100%. You need to know what you are to eat and what you are not to eat at certain times of the day. If you do not understand fully you will not know how to make the right choices. READ, READ, READ about your plan and research everything and ensure it is the right one for you and what you need to do. Now write it out, stick it up in the kitchen and even write it in your phone so you have it with you at all times, this way if you are not sure you can look and make sure you make the right choices.
2. COOK IN BULK
If you wait till the last minute for everything and are not planning ahead, at some point you will cave in and take the easier option. To prevent this from happening plan ahead and make succeeding the easier and only option. One way to do this is by cooking all your dinners for the week together. Spend one day cooking in bulk, then separate it all into boxes and freeze. This way especially if you work where you cannot prepare food all you need to do is take one out the night before and by the morning it has defrosted and your ready to go. We all know that cooking on a night or in the morning take up a lot of time, and sooner or later you will be in a rush and not be able to prepare your food and therefore be forced to eat the wrong thing. Plan ahead and take away all excuses
3. REMOVE ALL TEMPATIONS
We are all human and have our weak spots. We all crave thee wrong things. The only way to ensure this does not happen is by taking all temptations away. Go through your cupboards and throw away anything that could make you fall off track and stock right up with the right things. Replace your craving with something of a healthier choice and you are going to succeed and achieve your goals.
4. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Do you ever get to the point where you have done your plan for several weeks and all you tracked is your weight and it hasn’t moved much? We have to remember weight doesn’t track all improvement for example muscle mass, lean muscle tissue, body fat % ect. Below are a few options to track depending on your goals from day 1;
-Body Fat %
-Lean Muscle mass
Review all the above stats every 30 days. This will give you a true report of how well you are doing.
As the title says, Drink water. Stay hydrated throughout the day, if your hydration levels drop by just 2% it can have a big effect on performance. Aim for 3lt + a day. That is all
Put in the hard work and follow these very simple points and you WILL succeed. By following these steps you are taking away all excuses and opportunities to fail and fall off track. Every day we are to GROW as people and become better than the person we were yesterday!
