In this post, I’m going to explain why our friends feel bad spending a lot of money on healthy food but seem to have no problem, at all, spending a lot on crappy food. And then I’m going to introduce a simple mind set that can help you a lot going forward. Let’s get to it!
I love ice cream. I love cookies. I love hamburgers and fries.
I’m not saying it’s not fun to eat unhealthy. Because it is.
What I’m saying is that it’s way MORE fun to eat healthfully and to exercise.
Said in another way, I’ve never felt better from eating junk food than I have from eating healthy food.
I ALWAYS feel better when I eat better. (I know you do too.)
Ready for the reason why your friend is willing to pay top dollar for junk food but protests when it comes to healthy food?
When we’re in the middle of an intense craving, and we feel compelled to eat, we don’t think twice about the price.
$6 for a pint of ice cream? “I’ll take two!”
$4 a cookie? “Here ya go!” And we’ll even say, “Thanks!”
Gotta drive 5 miles away for that certain type of pizza you like? Vroom, vroom!
We do this because we’re thinking irrationally. We’re thinking with our short term self.
And when we go to the supermarket on a satisfied stomach (because my clients don’t go to a supermarket hungry, right?) we’re rational and thinking long term.
$6 for grapes? “What are they nuts?!?!?” we think.
$8 for clementines?! “That’s just insane!”
It goes on and on.
We feel bad about paying good money for good food but don’t think twice about paying good money for bad food.
Here’s a real quick lesson on why we buy:
We buy things because of the way they make us FEEL. People don’t drive fancy cars because they get them from point A to B faster. People don’t buy nice
watches because they tell time better.
No. They buy the fancy car because of the way it makes them feel. They buy the fancy watch for the same reason.
Here’s the best part about buying healthy food for ourselves —-> We feel better too!
I feel so much better investing in healthier food rather than spending on junk food.
This is the crucial switch:
EXPENSE VS. INVESTMENT
Want ice cream? The ice cream COSTS $6.
Want grapes but feel bad because your rational mind is telling you they’re too pricey? The grapes are an INVESTMENT of $6.
See the difference?
We feel even better eating it and 100x better AFTER eating it.
So let’s not feel bad about spending a few extra bucks on ourselves food wise.
The best part?
A cost is lost money. An investment pays us back over and over again. (At least a good one, does.) With our food choices, we GET to feel awesome during, afterward, and of course, we get to work towards our health and fitness…
Which, to me, is the BEST investment we can ever make. (Am I biased? Sure…but even if I didn’t own MyBodyTutor, I’d think it was.) I mean, without our health and fitness does anything else really even matter?
After all, YOU ARE worth it!
And besides, if you want to get all rational, I can list countless studies that prove how investing in our health and fitness now is far cheaper than the
alternative. But I will spare you and share these two quotes:
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
“It’s better to pay the supermarket than the doctor.”
Successful people invest in themselves, and they don’t feel bad about it because they know they’re an appreciating asset.
Have a great weekend! And remember: if you’re going out to eat, don’t feel bad spending a few extra bucks on the healthier food! We never, ever, regret our healthy choices.
In my opinion, there are three important parts to living your life in the best way:
See those three things?
Rate each one of yours on a scale of 1-10.
1 = I hate this part of my life.
5 = It’s acceptable… but I’m not happy with it.
10 = I’m kicking assssss.
Health, Wealth, Love.
Notice anything? Is one of yours WAY lower than the other?
When one of them goes way low, the others are impacted. Think about it:
If your wealth sucks, it’ll be harder to find or keep love. It’ll be more difficult to maintain your health with no resources and luxury of time.
If your love sucks (I mean family and friendly relationships along with romantic ones)… it’ll impact your health and depress you, which means your wealth AND health will suffer too.
If your health sucks, it’ll impact your love life AND your wealth.
In fact… if you don’t have your HEALTH, you can’t enjoy love or wealth! So what’s the damn point of doing anything without optimal health?!?
The easiest way to boost all three factors is to focus on your own health.
When you start feeling good, looking good, and your mind is clear, THINGS STARTS GETTING DONE.
And a person who handles their things and improves their life is SEXY AS HELL.
