Why You Should Eat Healthy

A few weeks ago, we dug into the real power of exercise and how exercise can allow you to live your dream life and live it to the fullest.

The week after, we laid a road-map of 10 minute at-home workouts to get you started.

This week, we are taking on another seemingly impossible task: to show you the true potential of what eating healthy can do for you and why you should eat healthy.

But, as usual, this article isn’t going to repeat all the things that you have heard already…

Convenience Is King

Eating Healthy Without Sacrificing Convenience

The Norm

After a long day of work and dealing with constant stress, why do we end up going to a drive through to get burgers for dinner instead of going home to eat a well-deserved healthy meal?

The burger might make you feel horrible the next day, or even upset your stomach the same day, whereas the healthy meal will refuel your body and make you feel awesome.

Even the time it takes to get to the drive through, order, wait in line, then finally drive back home to eat can delay eating more than just going straight home, preparing food, and eating.

It can also be more expensive than eating healthy.

If so, then why do we instinctively go for the burger?

Because convenience is king.

If food isn’t ready to eat, with minimal effort, when hunger strikes, most people opt for buying ready-made food, no matter the quality.

If that sounds like you, don’t sweat it, it can happen to anyone.

But good news for you: it’s not your fault.

Perfection Kills Progress

Building Success Into Every Step

The Plan

The majority of the time someone shares their health related New Year’s Resolution, or any other plan for a lifestyle change, with me, it involves a few of these:

  • Exercise between 3 to 5 days per week
  • Complete at least 3 workouts of resistance (weight) training and 2 of cardio per week
  • Wake up early to exercise before work or exercise after work
  • Cook all meals at home and pack meals for work
  • No more eating out(…ever)
  • Throw away all unhealthy food at home

It can even get pretty thorough with a set exercise routine like a 3 day split, predetermined cardio (run 2 miles, bike 4 miles), fixed calories and grams of macronutrients per day (X grams of fat, Y grams of protein, Z grams of carbohydrates), etc.

Sometimes, the plan is extremely detailed and thought out that it can scientifically get them to where they want to go.

So, kudos for having an awesome plan!

The Failure

Unfortunately, you might have already tried something similar to the above plan, with no success.

You might have heard of binge or yo-yo dieting, gaining back the weight you lost and then some, or even following a 30-day challenge only to revert back to your previous lifestyle on day 31.

Having a great plan isn’t the problem, but it isn’t the solution either.

Aiming for perfection from day 1 dooms around 90% of people within a short period of time.
