Ep 121: Food Quantity Vs. Food Quality: What Should You Focus on First?

For the vast majority of people trying to lose weight, gain weight or improve their body composition, figuring out where to start and what to focus on is the most challenging part. This is why I wanted to bring on Rebel's Nutrition Coach, Erin Murray, to unpack the most optimal way for YOU to approach your nutrition journey for the best results.

A few points we hit on in the episode are food quantity, food quality, food data, and food behavior. All of the above is extremely important because if you aren’t measuring and tracking well, you won’t know what exactly needs to change. Because let’s face it, nutrition is never going to be a quick fix. It’s all about the small actions that compound over time. Listen in to learn how to put the habits, actions and behaviors in place now, so that you'll see compounding progress over the next 10 to 20 years.
