Is "Eating Healthy" really black & white?
Are there "good foods" and "bad foods"?
Should I eat "low carb" or "low fat" or both?
Is (Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Zone, Whole 30) right for me?
How many (calories, carbs, protein, fats) should I be eating?
My answer to all of the above is always going to be...
This quote from Harrington Emerson sums it up best:
"“As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.”
You see the myriad of "diet plans" are methods. I would submit that for the most part the principles they follow very closely align, particularly;
A way to reduce/control calories to achieve weight loss.
Because when it comes down to it at a base level, this is the only thing that really matters. For my body, at this time in my life, under the circumstances I am currently living in (job, stress, sleep, etc.), how much should I be eating in order to support weight loss and optimal health?
This is where things get more nuanced.
Not all of us live the same lifestyle, have the same schedule, work the same kind of job, and live with the same stress.
So how do you know if a particular method is going to work for you?
Like the famous slogan says, you just gotta do it.
Find a plan, follow the plan, evaluate if it's right for you.
If you have been a client or following us for very long, you know our challenges are designed with some fundamental principles in mind:
- Awareness/Control of energy balance (calories) in order to lose body fat.
- Meal plans that are nutritionally sound.
- Great tasting food and recipes
- Accountability and support to help guide you
Not every challenge is the same as far as rules, scope, recipes, length of challenge and many other methods, but these principles are what we believe will give you what you need to reach your goals.
And these principles are the foundation of our
"Transform In 4" Challenge which starts November 1, 2019.
Here's What You'll Get With "T in 4"
