Making a change is HARD!
Whether you are changing houses, toothpastes or overhauling your diet, your brain does not love change.
Make it easier by being prepared.
This is the ONE step I see most people completely skip when they decide to lose weight.
You choose a goal weight, maybe even a diet you want to follow and then each day you wake up and have to figure out how to stick to that diet while being faced with all your old habits.
In that scenario, your brain has NO capacity to form new habits!
You are basically in fight or flight stress mode, just trying to get by with a healthy meal while your old habits work to keep you doing the same old.
To really make a change, planning HAS to occur.
Your healthy meals HAVE TO be ready for you so that old habits are easy to let go of.
This is WHAT WE DO in The Meal Prep Course.
We get you planned, prepared and relaxed, so when temptation arises it is NOT A PROBLEM.
Those new habits form fast and naturally. No fighting or resisting.
Change can be scary, it can be hard.
Losing the weight or starting a new diet can feel like you are losing yourself and your identity.
And that is actually what is happening; you are getting rid of your old identity and building a new one!
You are brave for making a change, it is not easy!!
The faster you can believe in yourself to be that new person, the less painful that change will be.
Let’s get clear together on whom the new you is…..
What do you think and feel as a thinner, healthier you?
What tools do you need to become the new you?
Write all of that down and move forward from there and you will see how FAST and SIMPLE change is!

My daily diet on the most recent trip I took looked something like this:
Bacon & eggs
How is that even possible? If someone had told me this a year ago, I would not have believed them.
But it is true.
I did all of this in the name of research for the No-Diet Diet Club Healthy Travel Module, and it worked like a charm.
Here are a few of the things I put into place...
