Perspective

We're hearing a lot of womxn concerned over the "COVID-19" - not just the disease, but the impact the stress and shelter-in-place are having on the bodies.

The first thing most people do when beginning a diet or health plan is to focus on all the things they can’t do – can’t eat sweets, can’t eat bread or pasta, can’t eat this or that. But, the problem is that elimination diets don’t work.

Sure, you might drop a few pounds or inches in the short term, but what happens two, three or four weeks out? Eliminating an entire group (or groups) of foods is just not sustainable – both mentally and physically – which means the results are short-lived, at best. Usually, dieters end up gaining back more weight than they lost because their bodies have been starved or deprived, and they subconsciously (or consciously) make up for it.

 

There are two big principles to digest here:

  • Willpower & elimination doesn’t work.
  • Habits always beat intentions.

The solution isn’t to just abandon all hope of making a change. The solution is to focus on what you CAN do, and adopting a wellness plan centered around the concept that there are no good or bad foods, just good and bad times to eat certain foods, and that movement/exercise is a gift to energize and strengthen your body, not punish it

It sounds complicated, but it’s not – the results are fabulous and they last forever, because it’s a lifestyle that can be maintained for the rest of your life. Imagine never having to say no to a cupcake or a glass of wine? Imagine never having to diet again – and getting better and better results as each year goes by. That’s the 5:17 lifestyle in a nutshell – exercise only a handful of hours each week and eat lots of delicious food (no guilt or shame, just intuitive and mindful approach that celebrates the human within).
