I’ve found (I’m sure you can relate to this too) that my clients often go off track in the evenings and on the weekend.
I get my clients to fill out food diaries to see what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong.
It’s often things like crisps, bread, chocolate, ice cream, pizza which they go wrong with.
The thing is they’re eating these things at home, which means they are buying them.
In order to stick to your weight loss plan then you need to be ruthless. When you’re shopping just buy the things that you know go along with your plan. Yes you can have treats but plan them.
If there’s a big bag of crisps or bar of chocolate in the house, chances are you’re going to be tempted and it’s going to be eaten. Then you feel rubbish!
If you know it’s going to make you feel like that don’t buy it.
So to help you today I’m giving you a quick shopping list of things that you should have in your house if you want to keep following a healthy diet plan.
Extra lean mince – chicken – steak – tuna – cod – bacon – salmon – mackerel – eggs
Broccoli – asparagus – cauliflower – lettuce – tomatoes – onions – celery – leeks – garlic – peppers – spinach – cucumber – avocado
Blueberries – apples – bananas – grapefruit – raspberries – strawberries – melon
Potatoes – sweet potatoes – brown rice – basmati rice – quinoa – rice noodles – porridge oats
Greek yogurt – seeds – nuts – dark chocolate – sugar free jelly – rice cakes – hummus – peanut butter
Coconut oil – extra virgin olive oil – balsamic vinegar – big selection of herbs and spices
So making sure you’re stocked up on a lot of the above will make sticking to your plan so much easier.
It’s all about the planning!
