Chicken…

Rice…

And broccoli…

DUHHH

Those are the 3 pillars, right??

Yeah, not quite…

Seriously though, today I just wanna talk briefly about the 3 components that need to be in your approach to nutrition to get you to the results that you want (fat loss, muscle gain, performance, etc)…

Gonna keep this pretty short and sweet, since it doesn’t need to be complicated at all…

So let’s get into it!

PILLAR #1 – Education

Don’t you hate it when you ask your boss “why” they’re asking you to do something and they just say “bEcAUse I sAid sO.”

Like, that’s not a productive answer at all and it probably dissuades you from actually wanting to do it…

It’s the same with your nutrition…

There are so many diets, programs, and “coaches” out there that will simply give you a meal plan, list of foods, and say “go.”

Maybe you’ve tried one of these, maybe you haven’t…

If you have, I’ll bet money that they didn’t work for you in the long term

Why?

Because there’s no education involved, whatsoever…

When you know exactly what to do and why you’re doing it, it becomes that much more likely that you will effectively implement the plan…

And what happens when you effectively implement the plan?

You actually see RESULTS.

So, whatever approach you choose to follow, please make sure that you know exactly why you’re doing it!

Pillar #2 – Individualization

We all know the coach that gives everyone the chicken (or tilapia), rice, and broccoli diet…

“Just eat clean, bro.”

Yeaaaa, that doesn’t quite cut it…

The reality is, YOU are an individual, one of a kind…

A templated, cookie cutter approach to nutrition won’t work for you long term…

It might get you some quick results by drastically cutting calories (if you’ve ever done a fad diet before, this is why they “work” at first)…

But the results are extremely short-lived…

A true nutrition program must take into account:

-Your specific goals

-Your dietary history

-Your PREFERENCES (yes, what you want matters)

-Your training regime

-Your stress levels

-Your schedule

-Your potential roadblocks

-Your support system

And soooo much more…

It’s much deeper than just the calories and macros…

To achieve long term results, you must use and approach that takes all of this into consideration…

PILLAR #3 – ACCOUNTABILITY

This is the big one…

The one that so many people overlook…

If we’re being honest, this is the glue that holds a successful nutrition plan togther!

~ “Accountability connects the knowing with the doing.” ~

It’s one thing to know what to do, it’s another to actually go and DO it!

And what’s required for you to actually see the desired outcome?

DOING the work…

Tracking the macros…

Lifting the weights…

Here’s the thing:

Willpower is a finite resource…

Think of your willpower as gas in a gas tank…

As you use it to make decisions throughout the day, your willpower runs low…

Just like the gas tank depletes when you use your car…

When willpower runs out, it’s game over…

Unless you have accountability…

So, how can you make sure you have the accountability you need?

Here are a couple of ideas:

-Post about your goals on social media. If you put yourself out there, now you’re more likely to actually go and follow through with it!

-Tell your family and friends what you are trying to achieve and how they can support you.

-Get an accountability buddy who is also trying to achieve a similar goal.

-Work with a qualified coach that implements these three pillars into their program.

Wrapping it up

If you can integrate these three concepts into your own nutrition journey, you’ll be in an awesome position to actually achieve the goals that you set for yourself!
