This week I made the decision that I will no longer be writing meal plans for people, and removed the service from my website.
It’s actually something I’ve thought about doing for a little bit. Is creating meal plans a source of revenue for me ? Yes. Do I feel that I write good meal plans for people ? Absolutely.
Then why would I stop creating and selling meal plans, and remove it from my website ? I don’t believe meal plans truly helps people.
Time and time again I have written meal plans that would allow people to get closer to their goals. However the best meal plan in the world that someone can’t follow does no good.
I put heavy emphasis on the very last few words of the above sentence; “does no good”. I never want to have my name or Evolve Nutritional Therapy associated with those words. Ever.
To continue to charge people and write meal plans means that I would be taking someone’s money for a service I know doesn’t actually help them in the long run.
I’d rather go to bed every single night knowing that I actually helped people find simplicity in their health, and didn’t contribute to the noise and confusion of the health and nutrition industry.
People don’t need a meal plan. Let’s be honest, there are millions of meal plans on the internet for free, and I would argue that 99.99% of them don’t actually help people.
My definite major purpose is to teach 100,000 people how to deconstruct their health and fat loss goals into daily habits.
I use the word “teach” because I don’t think I’m doing the right thing unless I’m helping someone understand for themselves.
I’m willing to share and explain all that I know at the drop of a hat if someone willing to listen, and it will truly help them. If you don’t believe me look at this last year’s worth of blog posts, and podcasts I’ve put up.
I want to teach people how to fish. If I give them the fish they don’t learn anything in the end, except how to become more reliant on someone else for their own health.
I want everyone I work with to not need me at some point, that should be the goal of any practitioner in my opinion.
When people change their habits in a way that works for them and their lifestyle it takes a little longer, but you can’t rush something you want to last for the rest of your life.
If you want change to last it can’t be built on extreme restriction and desperate unsustainable practices.
There will be challenges and roadblocks along the way, however with the right mindset and support system you can get to where you want to go.
No I won’t write you a meal plan, I don’t want money for something I know won’t actually help you in the long run.
But I’m more than happy to talk to you about to how to create sustainable change in your life that allows you to reach your goals, and keep your results.
