The four stages of transformation
When we set health goals, we often focus on a measurement aspect.
I want to lose 10 kilos.
I need to lose 8cm off my belly.
I want to fit into size 12 clothing.
But we often forget about the other positive changes that really should become a focus!
Things like a positive mindset towards food, craving control, energy levels, confidence, and improved moods.
Creating habits that act as an ally to great health.
But as you know, we don’t just jump from where we are currently at to where we want to be.
It’s a process.
And there are four distinct stages: Tension, Transition, Tantrums and Transformation.
Tension – you know something is wrong but you aren’t sure how to fix it.
Transition – you are ready to start taking action and invest resources into resolving the problem you are facing. This is usually when someone first books in with me, they know they need help and they are seeking expert guidance.
Tantrums – This is the self sabotage phase when you either push through or give up. This is complicated and I cover it extensively in my Food Freedom program.
Transformation – You have your result and maintaining it is effortless as you’ve mastered new habits with no desire to go back to how you used to feel.
A couple of weeks ago I had the final consult of the Metabolic Balance 12 week package with one of my clients. Yes she had reached her goal of losing 10.5kg and was managing a chronic health condition really well but she was more excited to tell me about her new mindset toward food. How easy she was finding it to navigate eating out and making everyday choices that was making her health transformation easily maintainable.
She now craves good, fresh whole foods and has learnt to listen to her body. Food has become her ally and it was a joyful part of her life rather than a source of confusion or guilt.
This is how you know that you have moved through the four stages into Transformation.
I cover these four stages in more detail in my Food Freedom course, which is available now.
My focus is to have you flow through each of the four stages so that at the end, maintenance is effortless.
