Meal planning will help you achieve your goal. It will take you a few minutes every week to avoid several temptations.
Make a list of allowed foods that you like and want to eat this week.
At the grocery store: never go on an empty stomach because you’ll want to put everything in your basket. Stick to your list only.
Once at home:
- Clean and cut vegetables in advance. In case of hunger or nibbling temptation, you will have healthy foods at your fingertips.
- Weigh and prepare your meats, poultry or fish in serving. Cooked or raw you can freeze them. It can then easily add them to your stir-fries, soups etc.
- Why not cook boiled eggs in advance? They can easily be stored for a week in the refrigerator in their shells.
- Also prepare portions of cubed cheese with less than 20% fat in the refrigerator or grated in the freezer. In a flash, you can add them to your vegetable soups, soups, salads, etc.!
Preparing your foods weighed and carefully portioned ahead will never put you off!
Have on hand boxes of tuna, melba toasts and whole wheat pitas. You will always be prepared.
