Have you said to yourself, more than a thousand times, “I need to lose weight, I need to eat better, I need to exercise more.” Everyone has. We fall into our daily routine trap of doing whatever is quickest and less work. Why? Because we are all overloaded to the max with responsibilities, self-inflicted or not. When it comes to our duties, to the want to improve health, a lot of us put our health on the back burner because we are “doing the best we can.”
Really? Do you really think you are doing the best you can?
Is there not a moment when you are sitting in line at the fast food drive thru and you can not think of any other healthier food option? Do other restaurants not serve unprocessed meats, veggies, fruits?
I think you know what we are getting at.
What is missing in that moment is the “want to” change.
There is a difference in “need to” make a change and the “want to” make a change. Everyone needs to change, but not everyone wants to change. Not everyone has the want to improve health
“I need to eat better. My cholesterol is out of control.”
But this usually controlled with meds and no change in diet. So you do not really understand the severity of the problem. Or it doesn’t really hit home because hey, you’ve got a pill for that right?
“I want to eat better to be healthier and live longer and not a sick life.”
A majority of people are motivated to change when it is the last straw. Something has gotten out of control and there is no other solution but to change. You are motivated by some kind of fear, and that fear is what supplies the want to improve health. Honestly, you should be kind of fearful of where your health is going if you live off of fast food and processed foods. Just watch Fed Up and you will get it. Even if you think you eat healthy, this is a must watch.
If you have no idea what is considered “processed” foods, then start doing your research. You will live longer for it. And just maybe once you find out some of the benefits to changing your eating habits, the “need to improve health” might change to the “want to improve health.”
The most successful clients have the “want to.”
They want to try a different way of eating. These clients want to try new foods. They want to make a lifestyle change and really learn why we should all eat healthier. Change is welcomed.
Making one step towards change could be simply reading this blog post, watching Fed Up, or picking up a rotisserie chicken and some veggies for dinner tonight. Change can happen on a random day or night, you just decide in the moment. There does not have to be some big plan laid out to make a smarter decision.
