    Mindseft shift for weight loss

    Mindseft shift for weight loss

    People (who are generally healthy) who keep struggling with weight loss have typically one thing in common - a restrictive mindset.

    They keep cutting calories, excluding foods and food groups, and over time develop a negative relationship with food.

    In this episode I discuss how to move from restrictive to a performance oriented mindset.

    What I propose instead is to have a performance oriented mindset...
    👉 focus on performance goals such as strength power, endurance, feeling energetic
    👉everything else will fall in line

    33:00  Addressing your WHY?

    43:10 Pros and cons of vegan diet:


    "They (people) take a dietary principle that might be rooted in reasonable science but rather than do it moderately they do something to the end of degree so rather than having a plant-based diet they have a plant only diet. And they wonder why they don't feel good on it, because they are not meeting their nutritional needs."
    Heavy reliance on starches and nut butters.
    Eating on the go.
    Develops skills in the kitchen.
    It brings people together via cooking and inspires them to 

    47:30 Intuitive eating - what is it? 


    Is it eating whatever you want, whenever you want? 
    We are conditioned to look at food as good/bad, Healthy/ unhealthy and we become disconnected from what we really want to eat.
     We have in our minds the idea that if we could if all foods were equal and had no caloric value, we would choose burgers, pizza, ice cream. It is not true.
    Intuitive eating is just a framework about thinking about food differently. It can be adapted to any individual.
    It (intuitive eating) looks at health as a continuum not an outcome.

    Some of the principles of Intuitive eating that leads you to trust your body a bit more and choose foods you really want to eat rather than what you think you are supposed to eat:


    Reject the diet mentality
    Make peace with food
    Challenge the food police 

    1:05:00 Confirmation bias - 


    What we look at constantly we seek. You need to look at things that are more inclusive to be more realistic.
    Most women don't walk around at 20% body fat!
    Choose who you follow consciously.
    Sometimes knowing more is detrimental for your success.

    1:10:00 Basics of nutrition 


    Look at the basics! Don't miss forest for trees.
    Be playful.

    1:19:00 Wrapping things up


    When and who intuitive eating is not ideal for.
    "Moderating your feelings through foods is no different to moderating your feelings through drugs or alcohol."

    Majo Srník - Ultra runner

    Majo Srník - Ultra runner

    What if you decide one day to pack your stuff and move to a different country? This is the thought that many of us had at some point in our life. Majo Srník did it when he moved to Canada in 2011 to start a new life with his girlfriend.

    Overcoming struggles of life he decided to seek a new challenge - running.

    It happened when he asked himself one day "What if I went for a run?" And so he threw away his cigarette and started running. He liked the feeling and decided that if he wants to run longer, he needs to stop smoking.

    From there on, it was just a matter of time till he got to ultra distances. Actually, it took him just three years from his start in running to cooperation with brands like Vivo Barefoot, Luna sandals, and Nathan - a dream of many athletes.

    Important to say, he is not an elite runner, but he enjoys it more than most people do and that is what counts here. To be happy in life, do things that make you happy. Grind is necessary but if you are to grind yourself to the place where you do things for the sake of doing them, that is not sustainable.

    Majo shared a lot of life wisdom like the one above during our conversation and that is why you should listen to this episode of Average to Exceptional.
