How many times have you abandoned a new program or approach because you broke a “rule” and ate something that you weren’t “supposed” to?
Well, I already screwed up, you might think, so it doesn’t matter now! And maybe you go from having one extra drink at happy hour to a whole weekend of indulgent food and drinks.
Or maybe you don’t even want to try eating a healthier diet, because you know you can’t live up to that stringent vegan/paleo/no-added-sugar diet your sister or friend or co-worker is touting.
This kind of black-or-white thinking drives me crazy!
I’m much more interested in the healthy changes you can sustain for the rest of your life than in dramatic shifts you stick to for just 14 or 30–or even 60 days.
From my perspective, cutting your overall added sugar intake by 25% for good is much more powerful than doing a zero-sugar challenge for two weeks.
Getting to Good Enough
I’m a big fan of the “good enough” diet. In fact, that’s what let to my 30-Day Nutrition Upgrade™ program.
Unlike other 30-day nutrition “boot camps,” the 30 Day Nutrition Upgrade doesn’t ask you to eliminate entire food groups or follow a rigid or restrictive protocol. You don’t have to avoid restaurants, cancel social plans, or pack special food to bring with you everywhere.
You’ll just keep on living your regular life…only a little bit healthier. (I’ll show you how.) You can even do it with your kids! (Some Upgraders report competing with their children over who can eat more vegetables during the day … and their kids love it!)
The 30-Day Nutrition Upgrade features my Nutrition GPA™ app, which was recently named by the New York Times as one of 4 best food tracking apps! Each day, you answer 10 yes-or-no questions about your diet and get a grade for the day. Your daily grades are then averaged to reveal your Nutrition Grade Point Average (GPA)
There’s no grade inflation here; we’re not aiming for an A. We’re aiming for a solid B. Because a good-enough diet is healthier than a “perfect” diet, followed by a reactionary binge.
Simple but Powerful
As simple and fun as it is, the Nutrition GPA is a powerful tool.
As one recent Upgrader wrote: “Good news: One D day does not shift my GPA all that much. Bad news: One A day does not shift my GPA all that much. Yes, Monica, it really is the pattern of your eating on most days! The GPA is clearing up any denial I had.”
The best part is that when we get to the end of the 30 days, you won’t be celebrating that it’s over. On day 31, you’ll be thinking, “Hey, that was easy! And I feel great! Let’s keep going!”
In fact, 93% of previous Upgraders indicate that they will continue to use the Nutrition GPA app after the program is over. Many have been using it for years.
The next Upgrade is kicking off soon.
