☑️ Nighttime snacking

Let’s talk about ONE BIG AREA that a lot of people struggle with when it comes to cleaning up their nutrition – NIGHTTIME SNACKING!

Have you heard of “ultra-processed foods”?  That’s the new buzzword for packaged snacks, pizza, and basically anything with a lot of added sugar, fat, salt, or other ingredients to make them tastier and more appealing.

These foods can actually trigger a  response in your brain, making you crave them

I have had clients doing everything correct. But then every night they get a  massive craving for those ultra-processed foods (even though they were not hungry) …. and every night they  give in. 

It was more than food. We changed up their evening habits to help them break the snacking cycle. 

It might mean tackling a home organization project and then going to bed early – and staying away from the couch and the TV (the trigger), which is where the snacking always happened. 

Most people have a cue, like the TV or couch for example.  Sometimes in order to break a habit loop, you have to (at least temporarily) remove the triggers that cause the habit to happen.

Do you have a time of day when it’s harder to stay on track? You don’t always have to rely on willpower – a little brainstorming can help you find a solution that’s a LOT easier!

If you need guidance, email us [email protected] and we can talk over this with a free consultation. This is the type of stuff that comes with your membership. We are more than a gym.

☑️ Unrealistic Goals? 

I had someone tell me that my expectations were a little too low. This was someone who had not exercised in the past decade. 

They told me their goal was to do sessions 5 to 6 times per week. Starting Next monday. 

My goal for them was to come see me between 2-3 days per week. To be more active on the off days. To start slow, but Start right now. Forget waiting. 

The person ended up coming back to see me 2 years later. And we developed a plan that would change her life. That she could easily fit into her busy lifestyle. Over time we were able to build up. 

The previous two years she cycled between periods of all-in and doing nothing. Some injuries in between. Some extreme diets to lose weight, just to put it back on. Some gyms who pushed her extremely hard, but were not set up for a lifestyle change.

We don’t do anything fancy. But we hold you accountable. We have fun. We create a family atmosphere where you will feel welcome.
