02 Sep Implementing Healthy Meal Plans into Your Schedule
Doesn’t it always seem like there’s a little person on our shoulder telling us to put that bag of chips or slice of pizza down? While eating tasty, salty foods pleases the stomach and palate, it’s becoming increasingly important for individuals—especially adults—to practice better nutrition. As we get older our metabolism slows down significantly so it’s up to us to have the discipline to eat right.
Eating healthy and nutritious meals sounds great in theory, but actually putting it to practice is difficult for many. For one, actually getting started and planning it out is the most difficult part, so here are some tips to help you get going on some healthy meal plans:
• Plan your week out: Planning is just as important as executing, so at the beginning of each week try to write down what your meals will be each day. For instance, on Monday you’ll have a a banana and yogurt for breakfast, a salad for lunch and some fish for dinner.
• Avoid snacking: Many people don’t realize that little snacks in between meals actually add up. Since snack foods are generally high in carbs and fat, avoiding them at all costs will benefit you. If you are going to snack, eat something healthy like fruit or veggies.
• Carbs? Carbohydrates are a tricky thing to navigate because for one, they’re bad for you while also being good for you. Only eat a lot of carbs if you plan on working out hard every day. If you only exercise lightly a few days a week, avoid carbs such as bread and pasta as much as you can.
