Nutrition

Years ago during one of my nutrition classes our teacher had us measure out a single serving to see what it really looked like. To say that I was amazed is an understatement. I think that it is super informative and powerful when you actually see what a serving looks like. After that assignment I really started to read nutrition labels and discovered that many things that I assumed were single serving sizes were actually two and even three servings! What an eye opener. It is amazing to me how powerful seeing something in black and white can be which is why I not only have my clients log what they eat for a few days but start reading food labels as well. We can’t change behavior patterns if we don’t know a behavior exists. When we take the time to track what we eat and when we eat then we can decide if we need to make some changes. Maybe we need to eat more often, maybe we need to eat more fruits and veggies, maybe we are eating more fatty foods than we realized. When we see it in writing and we are armed with the facts then we can decide if where it makes the most sense to make changes. As I always say little changes over time yield HUGE results.
