Many people are unable to change the way they eat because they can’t find a meal plan they can stay consistent with. There are ways to eat the foods you want as well as the foods you need. First, figure out what your favorites are as well as your flaws when it comes to your eating habits. Most of us don’t eat enough of the essential foods such as fruit, vegetables, and water. Most people love junk food, fried, and fast foods. Even though these foods are not necessarily healthy, you don’t have to stop eating them altogether. There are ways to eat what you want and lose weight doing so.
Throughout the beginning of the week like a Monday allow yourself to eat what you want. But every day you should drink half your body weight in water. For example, someone who weighs 200 pounds should drink 100 ounces of water. This will help shrink your appetite, keep you hydrated, and speed up your metabolism.
The next day should be a day where you eliminate one of the following foods: bread, meat, fried, or fast food. When eliminating one of these foods be sure to incorporate at least two servings of fruit and vegetables. Be careful not to go too long without eating. Make sure you eat three meals and at least 1200 calories a day. Failure to do so causes your body to go into starvation mode and slows the metabolism down.
The day after that allows yourself to eat whatever you want. Continue the following day eliminating one of those foods, but balance it out the next day by not depriving yourself. Keep your eating habits balanced so that you won’t feel too deprived, but you can still eat healthily. Also, add a day only eating fruit and vegetables to ensure you receive an even greater source of fiber.
Following this meal plan is a consistent way to eat healthy foods, and the foods you love without depriving yourself. It also allows you to speed up your metabolism, shrink your appetite, and lose weight. Try this meal plan with a small 30-minute workout four of five days out of the week, and you’ll be losing weight in no time.
