Are Weekend Cheat Meals Hurting Your Progress?

Weekday Dieting → Weekend Cheat Meals. It's time to break the weekend binge cycle. What do you do with a nutrition client who has "perfect" weekday nutrition and terrible weekend eating habits? Recently, a coach who is going through our Prosper Certification emailed me asking what to do with his nutrition client who has terrible weekend eating habits.

She diets diligently throughout the work week and eats her vegetables and lean protein, and then absolutely goes off the rails each weekend. Takeout, drinks, indulgent treats... you name it and she devours it on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, only to go back to her restrictive eating pattern Monday through Thursday, yet complains that she isn't seeing results fast enough.

✋ Raise your hand if you've ever coached a nutrition client like this before. ✋🏿

Almost every nutrition coach we know has a client or two just like this on their roster. So HOW do you actually help someone who is stuck in this pattern of eating?

In this YouTube video, we share exactly what to say and do with a client like this.

We find telling a story with a powerful metaphor really hits the point home. Let me know if this helps in your own nutrition coaching practice.
