There are a number of benefits to planning out your meals in advance that can not only save your waistline, but also help you achieve your optimal health.
Planning your meals will allow you to objectively evaluate the amount of food you’re eating and prevent you from overeating.
Food and meal planning give you the ability to plan for healthy choices. Too often, when hunger strikes, we go for what’s most convenient. Planning ahead helps us to be prepared for those moments.
Want to eat more vegetables? Do you want to add more lean protein to your diet? Do you just want greater control over your macro-nutrients? Food and meal planning helps you to achieve your health goals no matter what they are.
Planning your meals ahead allows you to change it up a bit to get a fuller spectrum of nutrients. Fish on Fridays will get you those Omega fatty acids. Salad on Sundays will get you a healthy serving of dark leafy greens. Yogurt and berries for dessert will add important probiotics and antioxidants to your diet. Adding variety to your meal plan will ensure your body is getting optimal nutrition.
I signed up for the 3 month FRESH Integrative Medicine Program to see Dr. Robert Graham, Michelle Miller, and Julie Graham. It’s been a great program so far. It gives me some accountability, I’ve tried different health programs in the past, but I never stay motivated enough to see it all the way through. It has helped me jump-start my life to develop better habits.
