Habit #27: Start with the Good

No matter what current state your nutrition might be in I’m willing to bet that at some point in your life you’ve done something healthy.

Before we consider change or adding habits I’d like for you to center yourself with the notion that you are already practicing good nutrition.

Good nutrition:

  • Properly controls energy balance.
  • Provides nutrient density.
  • Achieves health, body composition, and performance goals.
  • Is honest and outcome-based.[2]

Maybe it wasn’t 100% of the time (insider secret – no one does that). Maybe you could have stayed on track just a little bit longer.

Wherever you might have been in the past I guarantee that there are positives to remember and times when you practiced some form of good nutrition.

So begin this section by taking a moment to mentally review the healthy habits that you have done – or are currently doing – that will continue to contribute towards improving your health and nutrition.

Could you do a little bit more of that one easy and helpful habit? What habit felt like it gave you the biggest “bang for your buck”?

Try this:

Just think about what has been and/or is currently working for you and see if you can do that just a little bit more often.
