You are a product of the environment that surrounds you; the places, people, and things.
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” ~ Jim Rohn
If you want to change your behavior you need to change your environment.
For example, if you continue to keep junk foods that are full of sugar and “bad” fats in your home you are more likely to consume them, making it harder to change the behavior of eating high-quality unprocessed foods.
Unfortunately, we are bombarded with tempting messages (TV commercials, billboards, numerous restaurants, and food choices) every day. We don’t have control over those messages… BUT we do have control over our home environment.
A VERY important step in creating a “safe” environment in your home is to get rid of all the foods that are a trigger for you.
“But wait, my family will shoot me if I do that.”
If that was your reaction, think about this for a second…
If you are making a conscious decision to avoid certain foods because of the potential health consequences, why would you want your loved ones to eat those foods?
Now, you may need to use “transition” foods with your family until they are onboard, but I would argue that no one needs to be eating highly processed foods that contain sugar, trans fat, chemicals, and preservatives.
Get rid of your excuses and find your results.
If you keep foods in the house that are hindering you from achieving your goals, eventually a situation will arise and you will eat them!
Make this journey much easier on yourself: get ’em OUT!
To your success,
