Everywhere you look wearable devices are being marketed and sold as a way to hack your fitness and nutrition, however how can we trust that the metrics they are aiming for are accurate and will work in our favor?

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I just returned from my “East Coast Love” tour! My Philly in-person stop kicked off Truce with Food. It was challenging, and included so much laughing!
After just one session, 80% of participants polled no longer attributed their problems to lack of discipline.
The power of clarity!
The challenge with many of my clients is that while they are really smart, super well read in nutrition and have a high bullshit meter, they enter the program totally convinced that all they need for positive changes in their lives is a more discipline. And I know many of you do too.
How’s that workin’ for you?
As someone who hates inefficiency, I’m frustrated for you!
If you ever want to get past tracking your food or being good during the week only to let go on the weekends, you have to accurately “diagnose” your problem.
For example, one of my Truce with Food clients originally thought one of her bad habits was that she lacked self-control, since she rewarded herself at the end of the day with cashews. Lots of them.
In filling out her Good Girl Gridlock, which “x-rays” what’s really going on underneath bad habits, we explored if “rewarding” herself with food was really the habit.
She had extreme discipline during the day.
Where did it go at night?
And were cashews really that much of a reward? That’s child’s play to the “me” I was back in the (food battle) day!
Through coaching, she discovered her discipline was part of the problem. And those cashews were the solution to feeling depleted. Being depleted was her issue, not her lack of discipline. Trying to use more discipline here just depletes her further!
She needs a discipline. But not with food. She needs it to explore and transform her beliefs about feeling depleted that cause her to make choices unaligned with her goals.
In a nutless shell (I couldn’t resist; cashews don’t have shells!), it’s the power to explore her beliefs and a sense of experimentation that is needed!
Dr. Nicole Lipkin, an executive coach and master of change, joined us on our Insatiable podcast to discuss the role of this type of discipline in weight loss. I’ve had several listeners tell me it was so good they’ve listened to it multiple times.
In the Role of Discipline in Weight Loss podcast, you’ll also learn:
- How willpower is a finite resource and the “alternative” for making healthy food choices
- How long new habits take and the “21 days to change” myth.
- And the best way I have ever heard to stop telling yourself, “I deserve this (insert favorite food or beverage).”
Juliet and I both walked away feeling empowered, especially from #3.
