    I saw this on his IG story on Monday. It's pretty cool to see people in mainstream sports get behind the movement. If you haven't heard about nutrigenomics yet, you will soon! IMG_2826

    When it comes to health, most people want a new result, but continue to act in the same way. To me, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. If we continue to run off the same patterns in our lives, we will continue to get the same results. I want people to know that there isn't anything wrong with them and that it's not impossible to change. Everything you need to change is already within you. I'm a big fan of Tony Robbins and one thing he constantly preaches about is changing what we link to pain and pleasure. Far too often, I find that people have a negative self image. They might think, "What's the point? This is too much weight to lose, I'll never get there!". They link pain to their health or any change in their health. This may cause them to reach for those donuts or those chips, which provide "pleasure" and an escape from the pain. This might dull the pain and make you feel better for a little, but in the end, it just perpetuates the problem. One way to create change is to start having more positive reinforcement in your life. Let's say you walk for 30 minutes instead of 20 or you trade those chips for chick peas or celery and peanut butter, give yourself a reward! Pat yourself on the back, take a little extra time for yourself, engage in an activity you love, buy those new shoes, etc... The point of this is to create a strong emotional feeling of reinforcement so that the change becomes easier and boom, before you know it, you've created a new pattern and will begin to link pleasure to working out and eating healthy! 19060166_10100973801216787_1080779154834459185_n
