'If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got.'
Even with the most effective dietary advice, your new way of eating might be short-lived. Preparing yourself mentally with a resourceful and positive mental attitude, is key.
Your actions and the choices that you make in life, including the foods that you select, come from your thoughts. As you think it, so you become it. Practice thinking of yourself as the new you, as if you've already become that person. Perhaps, see yourself as fit, energetic, slim, confident and healthy.
The easiest way of getting what you want is to act as if you've already got it or become it. Acting in this way, you are more likely to choose the healthier foods in line with the Gi Plan because it fits with your view of yourself as a healthy dude!
Try this exercise as many times, daily.
Remember to enjoy your life in the moment and along the way, too. Make your journey as important as the destination. When you develop the mental approach to enjoy life now, you'll more than likely have it in the future, too. If you don't, you won't!
