ARE YOU AN A, B, OR C STUDENT IN EATING AND NUTRITION SKILLS?

There really ARE skills involved when it comes to eating and nutrition skills – things like meal planning, grocery shopping, meal prep (aka cooking!), knowing which foods fill you up, which ones make you feel hungry, etc.

Understanding portion sizes is also a skill. 

Some of us were never taught these things growing up! Or we’ve been taught so many conflicting things, it’s hard to know WHAT to believe.

Focusing on building these skills is a GREAT mindset switch. 

It is empowering (vs. restricting) because it’s not about deprivation – it’s about creating a healthy and fit lifestyle that you actually enjoy.

A few more learnable skills (obviously this depends on your goals & lifestyle):

  • Finding 3-4 breakfast options that taste great and keep you filled up till lunchtime
  • Knowing how to meal prep during busy weeks
  • Protein: understanding how to make sure you’re getting enough for your goals
  • Veggies: finding ways to work them into your meals (most of us don’t eat enough of them!)
  • Getting great at once-weekly grocery shopping (& streamlining it so you can get in and out fast)
  • Discovering snacks that satisfy you AND don’t derail your progress

Taking time to master these kinds of skills will move you closer to your goals … and give you a foundation that will last you a lifetime.

Just something to think about!

Committed to your health,
