MEAL GUIDES & RECIPES
I don't know about you guys, but I think eating for a healthy body or weight loss can be made to be way over complicated and over thought. At least that is how I have seen it in all my years in this profession. The simple answer here (in the beginning) is to have a plan and a friend. Eating healthy is 99% in our heads and 1% our ability to do so. Self control is the name of the game but only for the first few weeks. You've heard "it only takes 21 days to create or break a habit" right? This is mostly true. Because I do believe that we know the difference between lettuce and a snickers. However, we also know there is a lot more to it than the obvious food choices. Sometimes all we need is a really sound plan to fall back on when we falter (and we ALL do) and a friend who knows and is watching or joining in so we are not alone. Love is all you need! Am I right? Mostly. Fortunately, I can offer you both a plan and an accountability friend that just happens to know how to help you convert your new found "plan' into an actual lifestyle that stops the roller coaster and pulls that massive bar thingy off your chest, allowing you to experience the firm ground again. That was a really long metaphor and I may have lost it somewhere. Anyway, let's see the plans:
Phase 1. Start simple. In my meal guides, you will see it has been stripped of everything and made into a really simple IDEA of eating instead of telling you exactly what to eat. Everyone is different. So starting with the idea behind a lifestyle program is dipping your big toe in to the concept of gaining control of what and when to eat. This is designed to be a journey and educational into your relationship with food. Check out the plans below.
Phase 2: Shopping. Below you will find a basic shopping list of how to accomplish the plans. You will see and learn the idea behind what to eat and then you can start to add similar items or ingredients (So you can know what you are eating even if its not the exact item). I think you will figure this out really quick. Just be aware of what you are buying and DO NOT bring garbage into your house. That is reserved for parties and hiding in the parking lot or garage to keep from sharing with your family.
Phase 3: The big meal (typically dinner but whatever meal you want this to fall on). You will notice throughout my meal guide blog that I have categorized recipes by meal and by type of diet. Refer to the meal plans and plug some of my meal ideas into those categories. After you get the basic idea of what these meal plans are, recipes, etc., you can obviously eat from your own recipes that are similar. Again, this is a journey, an experience, and an educational process. You will learn how to control your relationship with food and also learn to love eating AND feel good in your own skin.
