Why do you need a genius nutrition plan ? When you feel motivated you can be disciplined and put in a lot of effort, but you also need some pleasures like snacks or treats, say ice cream or French fries, once in a while so you can take a small break from your journey to success.
The sizes tell you how much you can eat, and the colors tell you the type of food. That way you don’t have to weigh or measure everything in order to prepare your meals but just need to pick the type of food and fill each container to know the exact recommended amount for your target calories.
I’m pretty sure that in my everyday diet, I could replace some of my meals with healthier options or stop eating some treats like ice cream or restrain myself from eating French fries. But, let’s be honest, the most important factor to reach your goals is motivation. Think about what you like most to eat when you wake up, for a morning snack, at lunch time, for an afternoon snack and for dinner.
However, it’s always recommended that you plan 3 main meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. In between meals is good to have snacks so you don’t get too hungry waiting for the next meal. Prepare 2 or 3 snacks a day between the main meals. When you plan on losing weight, working out is important but 72% of your results will come from your diet. By diet I don’t just mean eating nothing but vegetables or some other crazy fad diet but having a healthy mix of foods and, most important of all, eating meals that you enjoy so you have the motivation to continue.
Very strict diets are no fun and hard to stick to so while some sacrifices are necessary, it’s a good idea to indulge yourself with some small pleasures once in a while to keep your motivation levels high.
