Last week I had a client talk about food overwhelm. As in having so much information about what constitutes healthy food that it overwhelms her. Her ultimate goal is to eat perfectly paleo. But instead of taking baby steps toward that (maybe-too-lofty-for-her) goal, she throws her hands up and stays stuck.
It’s a classic case of letting perfect be the enemy of good, and most of us know it all too well. In our strive for perfection, we inevitably fall short of our ideals.
