We thought this week we would address a topic that we know everyone struggles with in their health and fitness lifestyles. The basic question of, what is right for me??

We’ve heard of cross fit, interval training, paleo diets, purely weight training, no carbs, liquid challenges, whole 30, lite n easy… the list goes on! There’s a million different lifestyle choices to choose from, but what makes it right for you?

There’s been success stories from each of these lifestyle choices and it can seem difficult to crack down on exactly which choice is the best suited to you and your life.  For example, the paleo diet can work wonders on people with hidden allergies or low tolerances of lactose or gluten or whatever it may be, causing them to get maximum results from their training and make them feel at their best when they are following a paleo diet. Although, for someone who may not have any allergies at all, this could appear difficult for them to feel satisfied or have enough energy to complete their daily training. This doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong or that the lifestyle choice is a fad, it simply means it isn’t right for you!

So here’s a few tips to find out exactly what’s right for you and how you can achieve your optimum healthy lifestyle!

-Chat to your doctor, next time you’re at the doctor have a chat to them about a few lifestyle choices that you are thinking of making and based on your health history they will be able to advice you whether it is a good idea or not.

-Do your research, read reviews, talk to people who have done it before. Gather all the information you can and assess the choices then.

-Keep a health and fitness diary. Write down your activities, what you’re eating and how you feel, this will be a good indicator of what training/ what foods are right for your body and how it functions.

-Trial and error. The only real way to know if something works or not is to trial and error! Try it out, if it doesn’t work for you, don’t beat yourself up over it, simply try something else!

Most importantly though, don’t get caught up in fad diets or starvation techniques and wonder why you’re not achieving the results. Keep it healthy, keep it reasonable, you should be able to judge what you’re body is capable of and what it requires for optimum performance.

Here’s to a happier and healthier lifestyle foxes! We’d love to hear from you, send us a personal message or wall post with what healthy lifestyle works for you and we can build our own feedback forum!
