Kitchen Set-up Assessment
Berardi’s First Law
Berardi’s First Law, named for Precision Nutrition co-founder Dr. John Berardi, states:
If a food is in your house or possession, you will eventually eat it.
The corollary of Berardi’s First Law is:
If a healthy food is in your house or possession, you will eventually eat it.
Your surroundings: your “trusted safety system”
Keep healthy stuff near you and convenient. Make your routines and environment support your coaching journey.
Keep unhealthy stuff away from you and inconvenient. Make it hard for unhealthy stuff to get to you. If it doesn’t help you reach your goals, you don’t need it near you.
A good kitchen set-up makes things easy.
When you have a clear structure and a trusted system, you don’t have to think. You can just execute. And it’s simple.

Each person will have a slightly different list of red, yellow, and green lights.
