Your Personality and Your Relationship With Food

by | Aug 13, 2021

I went on a blind date once and the expectation was marriage or bust.

I felt a lot of pressure to figure it out and make it work.

Of course, it didn’t.

Then, one of my friends mentioned to me that he was having a lot of success dating blondes and maybe I should try that too.

So I did.

I figured, if it was working for him then why not give it a shot.

That didn’t work either.

After many failed attempts, I was determined to make something work.

At that point, I was pretty desperate.

Everyone else in my life seemed to be in happy and fulfilling relationships, but not me.

What was the problem?

So I thought to myself … you know what … maybe I’m the problem.

I’m just going to commit to making the next relationship work … no matter what.

And not long after … I met someone.

There were some initial red flags.

We didn’t share a ton of interests.

We lived very different lifestyles.

And, our vision for the future looked pretty different as well.

But, I was tired of being the problem.

So, I ignored all of the red flags and jumped in head first.

I fully committed to doing everything “right.”

I changed a bunch of things about myself to ensure the relationship would be “successful.”

In terms of length … it was the longest relationship that I had to date.

But it was toxic.

I wasn’t happy.

I wasn’t fulfilled.

I wasn’t myself.

And ultimately, the relationship fell apart because we were never right for each other in the first place.

Are your thoughts around food a toxic relationship?

All of these failed relationships were essentially the same …

Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Now … here’s the real kicker …

I’m not talking about my relationships with people.

I’m talking about diets.

You may be thinking … what the fuck is the blonde diet and to that I’ll respond …

Stop being so literal and let the analogy slap 😉

Look, you’re over here thinking .. why doesn’t anything work for me?

And I’m over here thinking … why haven’t you considered your personality before blind dating another diet?

You’re doing exactly what I used to do …

You’re trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Good luck with that.

You keep forcing it despite all of the red flags that the shit you’re doing is NOT the right fit for you.

Because you think it’s a YOU problem.

Which it isn’t.

You aren’t fundamentally flawed.

You’re simply barking up the wrong tree.

What if instead of random blind dates, searching for the same qualities that your friends are attracted to, or changing everything about yourself to make the relationship/diet work …

You actually considered your needs.

Just like when finding a life partner …

Your personality is incredibly important.

And yes, you bring your dating history and baggage into that relationship.

Your relationship with food will improve when you work WITH your personality.

Similarly, knowing what will work best for you is largely determined by your personality.

And your dieting baggage.

Want to know why we implement our Neurotyping principles as the first step with every single 1:1 client?

In the simplest terms possible …

Any individual who wants to change their body composition, feel better, perform better, get healthier, or improve any area of their life … two things are required …

Consistency and adherence.

Want to know where consistency and adherence begin?

In your brain.

Your brain chemistry will determine how you respond to certain nutrition protocols, training plans, food choices, habits, etc.

The best way to gain insight into your brain chemistry is through your personality.

So, it stands to reason that if we want to maximize consistency, adherence, and enjoyment …

We should probably begin with matching your plan to your personality.

That’s how results happen so quickly and efficiently for our clients.

Now, it’s not about making FAST progress (although that’s fun, like a love at first sight scenario).

It’s about making SUSTAINABLE progress (like a happily ever after scenario).

Which, in my opinion, is why Neurotyping is so effective.

Once you understand it and implement it … you never go back.

This is the first phase of our 3 phase process that allows our clients to dramatically improve their body composition while improving their relationship with food and confidently maintaining their results after just 6 short months.

The other 2 phases are metabolic priming and lifestyle integration.

If you’re tired of all the failed relationships and want to find the perfect match for yourself …
