What Motivates Your Diet?

Your diet gets a lot of attention, but it is only one layer of your health journey.

I write often about how important diet is. Diet gets a lot of scientific, literary, & media attention. I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. One of those four words is Nutrition. Changing your diet will change your life.

Changing your diet might be all that you need to do, but, I’m not sure how likely that is. That was not the case for me.

Yes, I changed my diet in 2010. But I had emotional work to do before I was ready to do that. The changes I made in 2010 would not have stuck if I tried them in 2000.

Why does your diet falls out of balance? Why do you eat lots of junk? Why don’t quick-fix diets stick?

It’s not the case that, one day, you just woke up and said to yourself, ‘I’m going to eat like crap today’, or ‘I’m done with this meal plan.’

No, it’s more likely that, if you did have that kind of thought, that it went something like this: ‘I’m going to eat like crap today because I don’t care.’

It’s those four words at the end that are most important. Those are where your true motivations are hidden.

Why don’t you care? What else is happening in your life right now that causes you to think this way?

Diet, and the results of it, is what other people see. What they don’t see is what’s going on underneath. What’s going on with your: stress, career, relationships, home life, finances, joy, and so on.

These are the layers underneath your diet that deeply affect your health.

These are the layers that your doctor doesn’t have time to talk with you about.

These are the layers that you might not want to talk about.

These are also the layers that, when you’re brave enough to address them, will help make changes to your diet stick.

As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, what sets me apart from others in the field is that I take the time to listen to you.

Changing your diet is not easy because it takes hard work and support.

Your first consultation with me is free, no strings attached, and confidential.

When was the last time you received the personal attention you deserve, and talked with someone about your health?
