There is a reason they teach you to learn letters before words, or addition and subtraction before algebra. Mastering a skill requires a solid foundation to build on. If a person goes from never working out, to working out seven days a week, it is unlikely to stick. If they go from 2 or 3 days a week, and build up to 7, that might be more likely. Each concept we go over is built off of the one before it. It is natural to want to jump right in, and make a ton of changes, but frankly, you don't have to! These changes alone will improve your energy, and reduce cravings, weight, etc...And we will continue to build on them each week.
Nutrish Mish has four components that make up healthy eating habits, we call them QQES, which stands for Quality, Quantity, Emotional and Structural
Quality –When your body doesn’t have the tools it needs to make you correctly. i.e. processed foods, eating out for reasons other then social, foods that don't have nutritional value (except in social situations)
Quantity- Eating too much, or eating too little
Emotional- Eating for reasons other then Fuel or Fun i.e. boredom, happiness, sadness, stress, etc…
Structure- When and How you eat including timing, protein/carb/fat ratio, combinations of foods, etc...
By understanding the QQES, we will create new habits to replace your old habits.
Working with your QQES requires a solid understanding of how to make the foods you eat work for you rather then against you. This program is a process, each session is a building block. Each step is required so in the end you have a solid foundation.
Keep in mind these three things
- Improve, don’t perfect
- This is a partnership
- You are either doing well or learning, there is no “bad” week
- Food is either fuel or fun
A solid structure will automatically eliminate other problems. This week, we are going to go over the structural concepts we want you to implement. Some of these concepts you might already incorporate into your eating habits. We are going to go over those so you understand what is happening in your body when you do them, and we can check that off on the list of healthy habits. The ones you aren’t doing we want you to focus on incorporating into your lifestyle this week.
