In my opinion what makes a person successful in losing weight is the person's motivation and determination. If you are determined to succeed you will succeed. No one can decide on your behalf, the initiation must come from you. After that comes the methods which you will choose. If I were to say what is the most important thing when trying to lose weight, it would be meal prepping. This really is the key to success. When you plan before hand all your meals, you have no choice but to succeed!By choosing healthy ingredients and preparing dishes over these, you don't need to count calories. At the end of the day what it comes down to is to eat basic nutrient dense food. It might sound boring but it's the truth. You don't need expensive superfoods, protein supplements,"magic pills" or weight loss drinks. Moreover, you don't have to think about your macros or how to divide them through your day. Planning your meals so that vegetables and whole food grains are the basis of your diet you cannot go wrong.
How do you do this?
On Sundays plan ahead the next week's meals and go grocery shopping. In the grocery shop stick to your grocery list and don't buy anything extra! Then at home prepare the meals. If you don't know which food items to eat, you can try my Healthy Eating Basic online nutrition plan. You will have healthy meals planned for you.
Do as much preparation as possible during the weekend. Planning helps to save time and it is easier to continue to eat healthy even when you are busy.
It is a simple as that. Make a commitment and start TODAY!
Until next time,
