A common question people ask me is how to get back on track once you fall off.
It seems like it’s quite a common thing that happens…
Do you ever have a day where everything just falls apart?
You make one bad choice that turns to two bad choices that just ruins the whole day.
You lie in bed that night and you’re feeling guilty about everything you ate.
The following day you wake up and you have two choices.
You think to yourself, I’ve fucked this up, I’ve ruined everything and i’m just going to start again next week.
Or you make a better choice and you decide to get straight back on track with your diet.
One day or one meal of over eating isn’t the end of the world and you can’t let that one day or meal throw you off.
You just need to think about one thing you need to do to get back on track.
If you’ve been in a calorie deficit for the last 10 days and on the 11th day you go overboard you can’t let that throw you off.
If you let one little slip-up set you back for more than a day, it’s easy to fall down the spiral of negativity and just think you’ve ruined it.
You can’t have this mentality because it’s the biggest contributor to people failing their diets.
It’s not the one day or one meal binge, it’s the aftermath of letting that drag you down further and further.
Every bad choice from then on just makes it harder to get back on track.
That’s why you end up failing your diet in the end.
One bad choice leads to another which leads to “I’ll start next week”.
If you can catch yourself when you have that mentality and you stop it in it’s tracks.
You’re going to stop that downward spiral and you’re going to be able to keep moving forward.
One day or one meal never ruined anyone’s progress, just like one day of dieting doesn’t make you lose 10kg.
It’s the consistency of your good choices which will give you the best results.
