As many of you know, I started my Certified Health Coach course through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. So far, I am intrigued and encouraged by what I have learned over the past two weeks and I am hoping that my new knowledge will encourage me to be healthier.
I am in a health “rut”. I want to be healthier and lose weight yet I am feeling not the slightest bit motivated to do anything about it. This week in class I learned about the theory of “crowding out” and it made total sense to me. I am going to call it CO for ease of typing!
We all know how hard it is to tell our brains to stop eating a certain food. Bad enough we have to be gluten free and free of other things. But to stop eating even more items is just unbearable sometimes. So the CO theory adds in things before removing others. For example, I am going to work on adding in more water, a little more exercise and some more veggies. I think when I go to remove the refined sugar it will be a lot easier if I am full from healthier foods.
What do you think? What works for you? Help motivate me and let me how you have become healthier. Or let me know that you are trying to become healthier or want to and just aren’t motivated. We can all do this together!
