When it comes to food and reaching your goals the ideal scenario is you being able to reach those goals while eating food you love.

There are a couple of things you'll need to define first. First off, what is your goal? Do you want to lose weight? Outside of that the option is to live well, maintain a weight or live within a weight range, and be well. Fat loss should be a set, defined time period and should not be indefinite.

After that, we need to explore what foods we really enjoy eating. For some people nutrient dense food like lean protein and greens/vegetables fall in to that category, for others it might be a case of it being more ultra processed type foods.

Either way, you need to make the dose match your goal. It takes time to build up this 'nutritional intuition'. You'll need to explore food, you'll need to plan and be organised for a lot of time, and you'll need to take time to build up your knowledge base of food and meals (how much energy they contain, are they mostly protein/carb/fat etc.).

Eating food you love and reaching your goals is doable, let's take a look at how we start to approach it.
