It so important when watching portions to PLAN AHEAD. Nothing makes for an easier, stress-free change in nutrition then meal planning.
We recommend on a Sunday to do the following:
- Create a menu for the week with two options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and maybe a snack or two
- Make a shopping list TIP: Try using similar ingredients in the alternate meals to save $$$
- Do your shop and cooking on Sunday and then store each meal in a labeled tupperware or glassware material
- Not only can you then weigh, cut, and serve proper portions, you will only pack or bring with you exactly what your body needs!
Planning ahead, meal planning and meal packing will do wonders when you are starting out!
