I have heard so many people promising to themselves that they will improve their diets no matter how. I have heard myself saying it so many times. The problem is that most of us are just saying it and we never get into action.
In the following rows of this article, I will try to reveal to all my readers the easiest ways to achieve this goal. You will see that it is not as difficult and that you can win this war against your own craves and wishes. You will see that it is not impossible to resist in front of temptation. If I did it, anyone can. It stands only in your power to do it. This is one of the reasons for which you opened this article, after all.
Why do we end up giving up?
Everyone is asking the same question. They do not ask other people, they just ask themselves why. There are two categories of people: the ones who feel guilty after they gave up when they saw a pizza and the other category of people who promise that they will be behave properly tomorrow. Besides these two sides, there is another one, namely the one who never gives up. Have I met people like that? Yes, I did and they have my entire admiration.
Why can’t we resist? Because all those carbs and sugars contained by refined and processed food give a powerful addiction. Another reason is that we do not have the necessary time to cook our own meals, we do not have the necessary time to spend time with our family around the table anymore.
We eat at our desks when we are in our offices or when we are at home we just eat in front of our PC or in front of the TV. We do not treasure our bodies enough and we keep finding excuses for this behavior. We crave for money more than we crave for health. But if we get sick how can we make money?
What to do?
After that lecture given above it might be the time to say what can we do to fix all that and what to do to finally take things seriously.
Let’s start with the beginning. The first thing that you should do, beside promising to yourself that this is the day, is to make a serious plan. Not a regular plan but a meal plan. What this thing will help you with?
If you do it this thing at the end of the week, more exactly in weekends, you will know exactly what your week meals must contain and also your snacks. This way you will shop only for the things written on the schedule. It is a great way to save money and to be prepared each day to have a healthy meal. It will be great if you will also write the hours when you are planning to eat. You already know your work schedule so it will not be so difficult to plan your meals according with it.
