How to tackle the Core Dynamics' Lifestyle
We are offering every Core Dynamics member a Core "Treat" each and every week! It's important for our clients to learn how to maintain proper balance without offsetting your results from the structure and treats we provide; rather than cheat mentality. We think to balance your results, in the end, are just as important as your weekly results. The only way to do this is to practice. Now, let's go over how to tackle and fully understand our take on the 80/20 Nutrition Rule.
80/20 Nutrition Rule
The principle behind this rule is simple: eat nutritious foods 80% of the time and allow yourself to indulge and eat a few of your favorite treats 20% of the time. For Core clients, we encourage you to apply this principle to the entire week, NOT DAILY to allow for your desired results to be achieved. Assuming you follow your meal plans closely through the week, this idea would give you the freedom to treat yourself to a meal out or a treat you make for yourself at home one day on the weekend. We will be providing recipes for these “treats” to teach you how to maintain events, friendships, and family without binge eating or over splurging and erasing your successful week. Talk with your coach about your week, tell them about nibbles or setbacks during the week. This will help you learn where you stand on the 80/20 nutrition rule. Or journal about each day to bring up in discussion with your coach. Keep your coach in the loop on special occasions, business travel, and vacations. Competitors in prep will choose options not containing alcohol. Competitors within 6 weeks of the stage must speak with their coach before taking part in these treats. Until that 6 week mark, competitors are expected to take part in these structured treats to help prevent on and off season setbacks or blues.
For you all...
