Struggling to stick to your meal plan? Babe, you’re not the only one!
Actually sticking to your meal plan can be a major struggle, but don’t let that deter you.
Following a meal plan has so many benefits and is a major game-changer when it comes to achieving results.
Here is what you should do to help you stick to your meal plan and ACTUALLY help you enjoy it!
1. Include Foods You LOVE
The number #1 reason why people typically don’t stick to a meal plan, is because they simply aren’t enjoying the meal selection.
Being too restrictive, cutting out food groups or excluding meals that make you happy, is NOT beneficial in the long run when trying to stick to a meal plan.
Instead, make sure to INCLUDE the meals you LOVE on your meal plan so that you are actually happy to stick to it!
Master Your Nutrition features an 8 week meal plan that is FILLED with all of your faves — pasta, pizza, pancakes, nachos and so much more. PLUS, your meal plan is fully customizable so you can swap out recipes to include your personal faves from the LSF app!
2. Mix Up Your Meals
Eating the same meals every day can be mega boring. Whilst it can seem super convenient to eat the same meals every day — this usually leads to getting sick of being on a meal plan and unsustainable in the long run.
So what should you do? MIX IT UP!
LSF Meal Plans are expertly designed to give you the best variety whilst utilizing similar ingredients across the days to make your meal prep easier. Plus, you can make the most of the SWAP RECIPE feature to switch out recipes for your faves!
3. Do Your Food Prep
If your meals are already cooked and prepped, you’ll be far more likely to actually eat it!
When you food prep, you’ll have the meals you need ready to be eaten in advance!
Set aside one or two days a week to cook your meals in advance. Place them in containers and store them in the fridge or freezer so they are ready for you when you need it. Plus, it saves you a lot of time and hassle in the long run!
4. Be Realistic & Flexible
No matter how hard you try, there are always going to be instances in life where you can’t 100% stick to your meal plan.
You may have a work lunch, a social event, or staying out of town. Whatever it may be, don’t beat yourself up about it! Instead, use your knowledge of nutrition and healthy eating to help guide you through picking healthy options.
Master Your Nutrition contains expert advice to educate you about nutrition, so you can confidently make better food choices during times where sticking to your meal plan may be a challenge.
At the end of the day, all you can do is try your best to make healthy choices, and forgive yourself during times where you can’t!
