Do Something Your Future Self Will Thank You For
This is tremendously powerful.
Look in the mirror, look at your physique and ask yourself how happy am I? Think about what you want to change and visualize how they can improve.
This has nothing to do with vanity and everything to do with keeping on track.
Remember that image.
Lock it in your mind because when temptation strikes you need to remember how much you want this and how serious you are about making the change.
There are likely two reasons you want to start Clean Eating.
The first is the one you tell everyone and the second is the real reason - the reason you keep to yourself.
A single person might say they just want to lose weight and look better, fit into a smaller dress, or whatever. But deep down — what they’re not telling people — is that they’re a little lonely and believe that if they look better they’ll be more likely to find someone. That’s the real reason they want to lose weight and there is nothing wrong with that.
For others, it might be because they are scared of dying from heart disease and leaving their children alone. Again they keep this real reason to themselves because they don’t want to be called paranoid or told that they are overreacting.
We’re all unique and we have our motivations.
You must be honest with yourself and discover the real reason why you want to do this and make it work because it will make the journey a whole lot easier.
When times are tough and you need that little extra discipline and determination you look in the mirror and reminder yourself of that real reason.
Then you “Do you something your future self will thank you for!”
Having a lean attractive body isn’t something you achieved today. Leaving a longer, healthier life isn’t something you stumble upon in your 70s, 80s, or 90s.
It is thanks to the cumulative actions and habits you made in the past.
So the next time you’re at a BBQ and there are lots of meat, salads (which are normally left alone and go to waste) and there’s lots of white bread…
Remember to do something your future self will thank you for.
Skip the breads and high glycaemic white carbohydrates then load up with salad and healthier leaner cuts of meat, poultry, and fish. Even if you can’t be perfect - just make healthier choices and your future self will thank you!
It might sound hard now but as you improve your eating habits, how you see and feel about food will change too. You will start making healthier choices not just because it's discipline but because you feel better when you eat better, and eventually, it will just be normal.
And if you’re still struggling at home in the kitchen.
There is evidence to suggest that having a mirror in your kitchen can help with weight loss!
Why? Well because when you see yourself in the mirror you are reminded of what you are working towards and have a moment of realization and self-questioning about what you are about to do.
It might even be the guilt that makes this work and stops you for a split second.
Then you ask yourself “Do I need to eat this?” before you change your mind and make a better choice.
