In this video we discuss why food habits matter as much, if not more, than what you eat.
Our culture is obsessed with different ways of eating with multiple books on each:
Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Carnivore, Calories In/Calories Out, South Beach, High Carb/Low Fat, Low Carb/Fat, High Protein, South Beach, Atkins, Zone, and literally hundreds of others.
But get this: while what you eat is important, the habits you have around food are just as important and maybe more more important than what you eat for long-term health.
Furthermore, these habits apply no matter what way you choose to eat. For example:
That's cool you went keto bro, but do you know how to navigate social situations and peer pressure? Going keto doesn't magically give you those skills.
That's awesome you're eating Paleo, but do you still use food as reward and punishment and an emotional crutch? If so, that needs to be addressed in order to live long, healthy, and happy life.
Good job on going vegan, but do you know how to cook real whole foods or are you just eating hyper-processed vegan junk foods?
The point here is that there are certain habits you need to master no matter what way of eating you choose.
Furthermore, while our culture's "What to Eat" books promise results in 21 days or 30 days, habits don't change in days or weeks.
They take months or years to change and they're way more likely to change when you have someone coaching you.
Whatever flavor of the week is your preferred diet, that's cool. But don't forgot about the habits necessary to eat healthy for the rest of your life that underlie any way of eating.
