Have you ever learned to play an instrument or a sport?
Did you expect to perfect your sport or instrument in the first week or month?
Of course not.
Did you berate yourself when you didn’t understand how to play a specific piece or didn’t learn a skill in the first few coaching sessions?
No, you needed time to learn how to play. You had to practice, put in the time. You had to learn from your mistakes.
Did you require the help of a coach or a teacher?
Very likely. Why do you think that is?
A coach or teacher is an expert in her field. She knows what mistakes are common, and how to motivate us to continue to learn. We need coaching to teach us the things we find difficult.
When we learned to play an instrument or sport we devoted time to practice. We learned from trial and error. We asked our coach or teacher many questions along the way.
Did we quit after the first week because we couldn’t play like Mozart? Did we quit after a month of playing our sport because we couldn’t bend it like Beckham?
No, that’s silly. It takes time to learn.
Learning how to eat in a healthy way is no different from learning how to play an instrument or a sport. Unfortunately, we feel we should already know how to eat. It should be natural. There is so much information out there. We should be able to learn it all from the internet.
Do you think you could learn to play volleyball by watching Youtube videos? No, we all need some guidance.
Healthy eating takes devoted kitchen time. It takes skills to deal with emotional eating and all sorts of other obstacles. Guidance for healthy eating means getting correct nutrition information from a professional who understands the concept. It means having someone to check in with so that you can learn from your mistakes and not feel like a failure.
