The truth of the matter is that many of us struggle to make change stick.
For whatever reason, no matter how much we may want to change, after an initial burst of action we hit a brick wall and all our efforts come to a crashing halt - but it doesn't have to be that way.
As a Nutrition Coach, I understand that most focus on the technical aspect of nutrition, and fail to appreciate that what is really needed is behaviour change. This is true for many areas of life that we wish to make change stick, not just nutrition.
It's not what you know, but what you apply on a consistent basis that matters, and that's where the 5 steps to deep sustainable change come in, a simple but profound concept that I learned as a Precision Nutrition Coach, and one that I share with all participants on my coaching programs. So what are the 5 steps?
On a scale of 1 -10 how confident are you that you can do this every day for two weeks?
Break bigger things down into their component parts (also know as "chunking down"
Start with "thing 1" then do "thing 2" then "thing 3" and so on. We can often skip steps in a hurry to "achieve success" and in doing so can make our success less likely.
Leveraging strengths to address the thing that is in the way right now.

Stop for a moment.
As you're reading this I want you to think about what do you truly value?
Let me also ask you, why?
What kind of person do you want to be?
What do you want for your health, for your body, your quality of life?
Are you living those values?
Chances are, like many of us, probably not as well as you'd like..
This is normal
The first step is to identify what you want, and your "why" , the next step is to acknowledge the gap between where we are now, and where we want to be.
A powerful question I often ask myself is "Who do I need to be for me?" What kind of qualities do I need to embody, and kind of actions do I need to take.
When we don't do what we believe, or sense in our gut to be "right", we don't feel good, and our bodies show it. A little piece of us can die inside.
Knowing what is important to us and why, gives us purpose and clarity. Either way our body keeps the score.
