I have so many clients say that they have no time to make healthy meals, research healthy recipes and actually have the skills to make healthy food taste good. So, here’s a solution for finding time and a quick solution to keeping your sanity.
Answer: Make your own Nutrisystem but make it better for you.
Go to whole foods and walk down the frozen aisle of natural foods to go. There you go. Pick 5 you want to try and make sure they have less than 10 grams of good fat (fat from unsaturated ingredients and oils from whole grains). For those who are salt sensitive then make sure the salt is low to moderate. Now, you can have these meals for lunch or dinner and you’ll know exactly how many calories you ate. If your still hungry try drinking water before, during and after you eat. Add a piece of fruit.
Try to mix it up and have just one of these meals for variety once a day. For the other meals, go for lean protein, lots of organic greens, fruit and a few raw nuts. Oh yea, again….lots of water etc.
What if i crave desert?
Then go for what you like. Just find an all natural version, cut in half and make a commitment that you’ll only eat it once or twice a week. Think about how much work it is to get into shape. Is it worth those few minutes of pleasure?
My favorite brand of premade soups and frozen foods:
By the way, go down the soup aisle of Whole Foods, Trader Joes’ or any other all natural food market. Healthy broth (veggie or free range chicken) are a great way to cut calories and fill up. You could even add more protein to them if you’d like. I add broiled chicken all the time to frozen meals or soups.
Try this method out and send me a comment. You’ll be surprised how effective and tastier it can be then just eating salad with protein. Train hard and you’ll have a flat belly before spring.
