Mindset in March: Sustainability.
A Sustainability Diet- one that can endure or be continued over a long period of time, promoting good health, ideal weight and prevent chronic disease throughout your life.
From detoxes, to fad diets, to ‘quick fixes’, the world of nutrition can be overwhelming. March gives nutrition professionals the opportunity to help those focus on themselves through science-based practice with focus on nutrition and this year overall health!
At Sarah Fechter Fitness, we believe in educating on a sustainable lifestyle when it comes to nutrition and exercise. A sustainable diet must be enjoyable and affordable or you will likely abandon it. It needs to contain all the nutrients you need to reach and maintain health and vitality.
Living the Total Body Lifestyle Diet: Not Just About Nutrition
The Total Body Diet is about adding beneficial foods, creating new behaviors and fostering a sense of responsibility to improve the quality of your life. It will give you vitality and freedom to make food choices, and also help you build a healthy relationship with food.
3 Principles to get you to this sustainable lifestyle:
1. Balance your diet with foods from all food groups- to sustain health, energy, and well-being.
Examples of snacks that sustain energy:
-1 cup plain low-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries and 1 tablespoon flax/chia seed
-1 cup of raw vegetables with ¼ cup hummus and a handful of grapes.
2. Be active every day and exercise for YOU and YOUR own health.
3. Make your mental health a priority and keep it positive- Your mind plays a huge role in your health and your relationships; not only with others but also with what and how you choose to eat and drink.
Being ready for a sustainable lifestyle and change towards your journey to health is a choice.
Are your ready for change and what are your goals? (Always write them down)
On a scale from 1-5 how ready am I to make these changes?
Am I willing to try new healthier foods or add in at least one healthier food item in my diet?
Do I want to become more active or change my physical activity?
Do I live my life and speak to myself with a positive mindset?
Understanding that change is a gradual process that takes time, patience and daily action. You don’t have to do this alone! We at Sarah Fechter Fitness are here to support, educate and guide you in your journey to overall health!
Choose Well. Live Well. Live Life! Happy #NationalNutritionMonth
