Yep, it’s that simple.
So-called “healthy” snacks are often higher in calories, fat and carbs than the “dirty” snacks that you used to eat.
But because they are “clean” we eat them.
This is just another way that “clean eating” is leading you down the road to nowhere.
Salted caramel date slice, sweet potato brownies and in the case of my girls Jenny and Joanne, the dreaded broccoli chips.
I love Jenny and Joanne, sisters who really good people with great energy.
They joined my high-level program at the start of the year and they are just a breath of fresh air.
Both girls have trained super hard, made a whole heap of changes with their habits and have gotten way stronger but the change in their physiques have been less than they, and I expect.
I kept going over their numbers,
I checked their programs
I asked other coaches for ideas and
I was stumped.
or they aren’t doing those two things consistently enough.
But that’s not the case with Jenny and Joanne
Then last week there was a light bulb moment.
The girls compared their food diaries.
They have different macros and eat different food but one thing was the same.
A healthy snack.
Clean eating at it’s best baby.
* The so-called healthy snack was adding an extra 500 calories a day
* 20 odd grams of fat and
* over a week it was 3500 extra calories.
So this week we dropped the broccoli chips and we saw a really nice drop in measurements.
So what can you learn from that?
* Clean eating isn’t your friend
* Snacks are snacks
* If you're not getting what you want and you quit, you definitely won’t get what you want EVER.
Keep working until you find the answer.
The difficulty is an invitation to try harder and to GROW.
(Thanks for the inspiration Jenny and Joanne)
You need to follow a process to get a lasting change.
It’s the process you follow that determines your results and whether or not you can maintain them for life.
Next week I’m opening up my new program
Sports Model Project Gold.
I have never made my process available to girls outside of my high level
Sports Model Project so I’m capping a number of girls I accept.
If you want to get on the “VIP Invitation List”
