Goalsetting Your Healthy Eating Plan For Success

Nutrition Goal Setting

Are you about to embark on goalsetting your healthy eating plan? If so, your approach will most certainly involve a process of re-education.

If you have set goals in the past without much success, what you're about to learn will help you to understand the barriers to achieving nutrition goals and put you many steps forward in understanding the possible reasons your goals have not materialised.

Just as with everything else, your approach to your nutrition goal setting has to be right, for your goals setting success.

The first thing you'll need to ensure when goalsetting your healthy eating plan, is that it clearly focuses on what you want to bring into your life, and not what you want to let go of.

Example - 'Eat a healthy diet', 'Eat healthy foods', 'shop for healthy foods'.

In the words of a famous quote:

"a lot of us would like to move mountains but few of us are willing to practice on small hills"

Yet, it's the small steps (hills) that you take every day, which will add up to you moving mountains.

Start with clarity about what you're doing!

  • Why you are setting nutrition goals?
  • What are the barriers to achieving your nutrition goals?
  • How are going to overcome these barriers?
  • Who can help you achieve your healthy eating goal?

  • Time constraints because you work long hours
  • Your tendency to eat junk foods or convenience foods
  • You do not consider your cooking skills adequate
  • Your diet restricts certain foods - e.g. you're a vegetarian
