When I first found out about the Hard 75 I knew I wanted to do it.

The 75 Hard Challenge Rules

  1. Drink a gallon of water every day
  2. Exercise twice per day for 45 mins each (one has to be outside)
  3. Read 10 pages a day of a nonfiction growth-oriented book
  4. Take a progress picture of your body every day
  5. Pick a diet and follow it with zero cheat meals and no alcohol

As a nutritionist I had trouble with number five – pick a diet and follow it.

I tell people to eat intuitively but I have to follow a diet myself?!

That’s not leading by example.

So I created my own – which I believe anyone could do with a little help.

Here’s how I structured, and still structure, the way that I eat.

I eat based on 4 criteria (in order of importance)

  1. How food digests in my body.
  2. Food I enjoy
  3. Foods that support my goals
  4. Foods I can eat moderately and sanely!

Digestion is first.

First I want to make sure that my body can even process what I am giving it! 💡

I know I digest something well because I feel energized after eating it, my stomach stays flat, and I can go about my day with ease.

I know when I eat something that my body does not tolerate because

  • I overeat it and feel stuffed or guilty after
  • I get a headache or brain fog
  • I feel hungover the next day
  • I feel bloated

When I started paying attention and listening to how food feels and what foods digest well it made making food choices a lot easier for me.

It sounds so simple.

IT IS and it can be if you give it a fair try.

I’ve attached a free worksheet you can try out for yourself.

How-Food-Feels-Journal-form-fillable-V4-2019.pdf

Download the form and try it out for a day. You may discover some things about yourself.

Once you start working with your body it will start working for you.

This is one of the most liberating things I ever started doing with with making food choices.

With this knowledge, I can make my own rules and so can you.

I hope this helps you!
