Two simple frameworks to find the middle ground between deprivation and guilt
We know what we "should" eat but we can't seem to implement it. We either restrict ourselves and feel super deprived or we get overwhelmed by all the "shoulds" and eat whatever we want, leaving us feeling lots of guilt.
It doesn't have to be that way. I've found a way to cut to the middle between deprivation and guilt, so I created my #ConsistentNutrition Cheatsheet. This cheatsheet helps all of us implement the things we know we should do with our nutrition.
As an eating disorder survivor of over ten years, my mission is to help women change their bodies without reverting to obsession or disordered eating tendencies by teaching them them joyfully eat and move in a way that gets results.
I'm a California born dog mom, coffee drinker, wine lover, and pit bull advocate. My favorite time of the the day is 5:30am when I'm snuggling Juno and Dany (my pit bull pups) and brainstorming blog post ideas.
I'm also a NASM certified personal trainer and Precision Nutrition L1 coach. Most days you can find me enjoying some bubbly while reading up on nutrition (irony), or hanging outside, preferably on a NorCal beach in a big sweatshirt, coffee in hand. I'm obsessed with true crime, good coffee, pit bull advocacy, and Lenny & Larry cookies.
I created this cheatsheet, because consistency with nutrition is hard. We often know what we need to do but implementing it is another story. There are days when we’re really good and days when everything is off. Sometimes nutrition is effortless, but other times, it gets so overwhelming or we get sick of making decisions, so we end up overindulging and feeling guilty later. When these things happen, we feel like there’s no middle ground between restriction and guilt.
