Are you mowing your lawn while your house is on fire?

Are you mowing your lawn while your house is on fire?
We get questions all time like:
“Should I eat 7 meals a day?”
“Should I do intermittent fasting?”
“Should I try Keto?”
“Should I change my macros?”
“Should I cut more calories”
“Should I get rid of sugar, alcohol, fun…?”
“Which supplements should I take?”
“What about meal timing?”
There’s nothing wrong with any of these questions, but if you don’t have basic healthy habits down first, like:
-High quality sleep habits
-Eating majority Whole Foods
-Drinking substantial water
-Eating a consistent intake day to day
-Incorporating daily movement (minimum 30 minutes)
-Managing stress
Then this is what we call mowing your lawn when the house is on fire. Take a look at your daily habits and how you currently eat. Writing down everything you eat in a day is a great place to start because it brings to light the reality of everything you’re taking in!
Are you doing everything listed above? If you are and you’re still not seeing the results you want, then it’s time to dig deeper! But until then, focus on the little (and maybe not so exciting, but effective) details and then re-evaluate! It’s easy to get caught up in the next big trend & hop around from one thing to the next without giving the simple solutions right in front of us a solid effort!
Are you guilty of mowing your lawn when your house is on fire? What simple habit can you improve on before jumping to something else?
