Anti-Dieter Mindset Video 5:
The Two Mental "Triggers" To Help You Stick Your Diet (Especially If You Struggle With Consistency)
The final principle of the Anti-Dieter Mindset is all about accountability.
Because the truth is this.
At the end of the day, your fitness journey is You vs. You.
Meaning, you are fully responsible for taking consistent action.
And the way you’ll take consistent action is by creating internal and external accountability.
Creating internal accountability yourself comes down to planning.
When you fail to plan ahead, you have to rely on willpower in the moment to make the right choices.
That’s fine on occasion, but you don’t want to rely on willpower alone.
Reason being, willpower is a finite resource.
Once you run out, it’s nearly impossible to make the fitness-minded choice in the moment — especially since it usually means moving away from comfort.
When you plan ahead, you are essentially making a promise with your future self.
And you’re much less likely to break a promise with yourself than rely on willpower in every moment.
Side note: I know not everyone likes planning, but everyone will benefit from doing more of it.
A strategy we use with LFL coaching clients is the plan 24Before.
Each night before you go to bed, spend 5-10 minutes to think about the day ahead. Think about what you can have for breakfast, when you can get your workout in, what dinner is going to be, etc.
By planning 24Before, you are always one step ahead.
It creates less resistance, requires less willpower, and creates more accountability.
The other type of accountability you need (or at least will highly benefit from) is external accountability.
External accountability comes from a coach, friend, or community.
Early on in your journey, this kind of accountability can be an absolute game-changer.
Reason being, internal accountability requires a good degree of self-discipline... Whereas external accountability can fill the void for people who struggle to hold themselves accountable on a consistent basis.
Feel like you need more external accountability?
