For the month of November, we are going to give you a nutritional challenge each week. These challenges will build on each other every week, for a hopefully smooth transition into healthy eating. We scale workouts for you guys, lets scale nutrition as well!
Nutritional Challenge of the week:
Step 1: Breakfast, Protein, Dinner
Start eating breakfast. I don’t care if you’re not hungry in the morning or you hate eating breakfast. Start eating breakfast and that will change.
Start eating breakfast.
And breakfast must include some protein. Eat some meat with every meal—every single meal throughout your day. You can still forage on pasta and casseroles, but you’ve got to put some chicken in there.
Finally, eat a healthy dinner with meat and vegetables each night at home. It’s just one meal, so suck it up and make that commitment to one healthy meal per day. And yes, I realize at this point a “healthy meal” probably means very different things to each of us, but just give it your best shot with meat and vegetables. After all, this is about baby steps, so don’t get wrapped around the axle. At this point, you can still have some dessert if you want.
“If you really believe proper nutrition is beneficial to your health and your life, then put on your big-girl panties and keep moving, even if it’s a little uncomfortable. The process will never be totally comfortable until you get to the end, so accept that and keep marching forward.”
