Accountability and your energy bank balance

Posted by Gale Bernhardt on Apr 18, 2013 10:01:12 AM

In the past month I’ve had two athletes decide to be more accountable for nutrition. By simply keeping a food log, they have both dropped weight. One of them is logging food prior to consumption, the other after. Both have said it has helped them make better choices and control portion size. The mindless eating ended. They are not “dieting” because no food choice is off the table. All choices are available because it is a conscious decision to eat or drink calories/energy/nutrition.

Both athletes feel great and energy has increased.

If you’re beginning to think about shedding some winter fluff, consider holding yourself accountable for your energy bank account. Consider the quality and quantity of your calorie investment. Is that investment going to pay you big dividends in the next one to six months?

If not, change your investment portfolio now.
