So, this post came in an email from my fitness pal. Ok, I get them all the time. I have used their app for years, I read their blogs, trust their info, so I opened my email.
This blog post jumped for me because this is what I have been saying for a long time. It is great to have plan to stick to, a program to follow, a guide to help with decisions, but if it isn’t something that you can stick to, it simply won’t last long. Unfortunately common sense isn’t so common anymore, but this just makes too much sense not to repeat.
- First, when you plan, you nix the “What should I eat for dinner today?” dilemma that keeps many from making their own meals, and resorting to overeating when they walk through the door at dinnertime.
- Second, meal planners may strategically pick recipes that take, say, less than 20 minutes to make, which means “I have no time; calling delivery is quicker,” is no longer a valid cop-out.
- Third, when you plan, you’re prepared and have all necessary ingredients on hand.
If you want to read the whole post, it’s really not too long, here is the link.
