Something I have come across working with people in their 30's and 40's too many times...
is the "all or nothing approach" to their workouts, nutrition and overall lifestyle.
Honestly, I can see why you make this your first approach to changing your overall health and lifestyle.
You've made the decisions to do something about how you feel and look and you're not wanting to beat around the bush you want to get stuck in and start seeing results ASAP.
But this is not the case.
The "All or Nothing" approach literally sets you up for failure.
It sets the tone that nothing other than perfection will count and if you mess up you'll end up feeling pretty crappy about yourself and self-sabotaging the rest of the week or month.
You can see why this isn't a good approach to have when it comes to getting leaner, fitter, healthier, and stronger.
To top it off this approach generally leads to massive restriction when it comes to your nutrition and overall lifestyle.
When looking to lose weight and body fat, you do not need to restrict your favourite types of food whilst being in a caloric deficit.
Anyone that tells you that you need to you have my permission to slap them silly.
My takeaway tip is this. Rather than adopting the all-or-nothing approach, I want you to enjoy what you're doing and allow yourself a bit of leeway.
Yes, the results may take a few weeks longer but trust me you'll be much healthier mentally and have a way better relationship around your health and fitness than you ever did making your end result even sweeter.
In this week’s podcast, Dave and I go over the pitfalls associated with the all or nothing approach and build the case for looking for small wins each day, and other tips on how to keep moving forwards towards your goals when things don’t go to plan.
