Compile Your Recipe List
Whether you want a binder filled with printed recipes or a master recipe file on your laptop, assembling some great recipes is crucial to stave off boredom and keep you on point with your eating plan. With magazines, cookbooks and the internet at your disposal, there is simply no excuse to say you don’t have enough ideas for meals.
You will want to stick with your standard favorites and mix in some new recipes as you come across them. Eventually you’ll have a strong rotation of meals to keep you interested and well-fed.
If you overlap ingredients across your meals, you’ll have less to buy when food shopping. Think about the nutritional value of foods and determine the yield of recipes by serving.
It’s worth adding here that to maintain any eating plan, it’s essential you can get to the information you need at all times. If you are likely to spend time anywhere with restricted internet service, whether that’s traveling in a foreign country or just blocked by a corporate firewall, this guide will help you get access to whatever nutritional content you need.
Create a Meal Calendar
The simple act of displaying your meal calendar front and center makes you more likely to follow through. Whether in digital or paper form, make sure you can see at a glance what’s up for each day of the week and keep things transparent.
You can save time and effort by writing up your grocery list while you’re making your meal calendar. Think carefully about quantities and avoid underestimating the number of snacks that you might need.
You might shop weekly or monthly, and you might prefer getting food delivered to visiting the store. Whichever method you prefer, make sure you maximize your chances of success by stocking up on everything well ahead of time.
Do Not Go Hungry
One surefire way to stop following any kind of eating plan is to let yourself feel hungry on a regular basis. If you eat a sensible breakfast, lunch and dinner and allow yourself some snacks in between, there is simply no need to feel hungry. Whether you are looking to lose weight or increase your lean muscle, letting the body go into emergency mode by starving its fuel source is not the way forward.
You should also make certain to drink at least two liters of water daily. It’s easy to eat when your body is actually crying out for hydration instead of food.
Do Not Deprive Yourself
Make sure that your nutrition plan includes some of your favorite treats. When you eat a healthy overall diet, no individual food should be completely off-limits.
If you can’t imagine going without fries or ice cream, don’t try to go without! Make room for the things you like most as a special reward for progress or sticking to your plan.
The key to your success in remaining true to a nutrition plan is to make that plan adapt to your needs. You need to see what you are doing as a positive lifestyle change rather than viewing it as a restrictive diet.
