3 ways to get your eating on track.

By John Berardi, Ph.D.


In this infographic I’ll share the 3 main strategies I use to help clients fix a “broken diet” and start eating better.

I’ll also share how we troubleshoot eating plans when they’ve “just stopped working” and you don’t know what else to try.

And, finally, I’ll show you how to use these powerful and purposeful strategies to improve your own eating. Or to help others do the same.

If you feel like your nutrition’s off track – but aren’t sure what to do about it – hopefully this infographic (and the accompanying article) have given you something new to consider and try.


  • First, remove red flags and nutrient deficiencies.
  • Control your calorie intake without counting calories.
  • Consider your body type and activity level.
  • Observe your progress carefully. Adjust your intake as needed.
  • Do all of this consistently and long-term first, before adding any new strategies.

Remember, whether you’re a beginner and trying to get started in the right direction, or you’re experienced but still spinning your wheels, these steps – when applied in sequence – can make all the difference.

Want help sorting all this out?

This is simple stuff. But it’s not necessarily easy to put into practice, especially with the consistency needed to see results.

If you work in fitness, consider learning more about how to help your clients with their eating through our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program.

And if you’re looking for help and guidance yourself, we’ll soon be taking a group of new clients looking for expert support, all as part of Precision Nutrition Coaching.

We accept a very small number of new clients every 6 months, and the spots in the program typically sell out in hours.

However, those motivated enough to put themselves on the presale list get to register 24 hours before everyone else. Plus, you’ll receive a big discount at registration.

So put your name on the list below – because, as always, spots are first come, first served, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
