Pre-plan your meals
Plan your meals in advance to give you a weekly structure to follow. You could also consider weekly menus. For those who think eating healthy is way too expensive, think again; this will also help you save money. Meal planning can save you money when done effectively, because you can buy items in bulk and take advantage of your freezer. When you set aside time to prep your food, think big in terms of volume.
Prep full meals or individual sources for easy meal planning. Pre-made protein sources help ensure you eat adequate protein & meal prepping is great for busy individuals. Once you get the gist of it, meal prepping becomes such an essential part of your weeks structure. Rather than cooking dinner and cleaning up, and then having to get everything out again to make something for lunch you have already pre-made the lunch meals. This helps you cut so much time in the kitchen and you will have the great feeling of being much more organised.
Don’t buy tempting foods
Keep foods that temp you out of the house. If you are unable to avoid having these foods, put them out of sight to avoid easy snacking. Having a list of weekly meals and mass bulk buys will help you to avoid buying those tempting foods.
Pump up the nutrients
Increase the volume of nutritious and low-calorie foods such as vegetables to help increase the feeling of being full, without having to add a lot of calories into your meals. This will also help you gain a better understanding of portion control and it will allow you to spread your eating throughout the day better, rather than having 1 or 2 big meals a day.
Don’t worry if you slip up, just get back on track
No one is perfect! Not even those Instagram famous fitness fanatics. Don’t beat yourself up if you occasionally go off your dieting plan. Remember, you don’t have to wait until the next day to get back on track, you can get back on track with your next meal. It’s good to relax every now and gain to have a treat to keep you interested in your diet.
