If Your Kitchen Could Talk….What Would It Say About You?
By Heather B. Dube’ – CHHC, AADP, CWC, CPT, NANP, NPC, BA
So it’s pretty common when working with people supporting them on improvements in their health, fitness or nutrition across the board that they “over report”. Over reporting simply is when the mind’s interpretation of ones reality is truly is not equivalent to the reality of their actions, and at least 80% of people are guilty of this when asked to assess & report their actions & behaviors around their health, fitness & healthy eating.
This can happen for any number of reasons – people over report their realities because of misunderstanding, embarrassment, maybe even lack of knowledge in the areas they are being assessed.
I often wish when we’re counseling clients on nutrition and their overall health that we could skip their assessment & simply walk into their kitchen as this would be the most accurate story of the reality of one’s health inside & outside. Truly, if your kitchen could talk there’s a TON of variance in what it could say as a reaction to what you choose to fill it with – if your frig & cupboards had a voice, what do you think they would say about you? Now be honest with yourself. Would it be thanking or cursing you?
