If you fail to plan, you already plan to fail!
Meal planning is essential if you want to stay on track!
I NEVER leave the house without my little cooler.
I pack some water, an apple with a little glass container of mixed nuts, a protein shake and a protein bar.
It's when we are busy with our lives...our jobs -- we get caught up and go, go go!
Then...out of no where... the hungry horrors hit us like a ton of bricks!
What do we normally do?
Eh..let's make a quick stop at Micky D's or Dunkins...we feel better for a little while....then by mid afternoon we get the CRASH!
Then what do we do? Grab a coke...or a coffee...and we are off again....until the second crash hits and you're thinking about having to pick up the kids...the dry cleaning....homework...and you still have to cook dinner...
Break this vicious cycle by prepping your meals and snack -- it takes practice but once you get it down it will make your life so much easier AND....
You will FEEL 100 times better!
By feeding your body properly - you will gain more energy, kick up your metabolism, your brain fog will clear, you will get more accomplished, you will start to lose weight, and your health will improve
So plan your snacks, lunches and dinners for the week - do it on a Sunday and your mind and body will thank you!
Tip: Eat all meals 2.5 to 3 hours apart. Please don’t skip meals!
