Hate to break it to ya- but you can’t starve yourself, lose weight and think that weight will stay off! You need to eat. But you need to eat the RIGHT foods, not just fill your body with empty calories.
If you are struggling with knowing WHAT foods to eat, or how MUCH to eat – there’s a great online tool that I discovered that is fabulous! For me and Jayson we struggled with not having healthy recipes and when I did find something that I THOUGHT was healthy I had NO CLUE what the calories were! And let’s be honest, I’m not going to add up all the calories from the different ingredients. I don’t have time for that!
I’m sure everyone has heard of MyFitnessPal. It’s an app you can download for free on your iPhone that keeps track of your calories and exercise. Jayson and I tried that a few years ago and it was great if you were eating lots of packaged meals. But if you make something from scratch you have no idea the calorie count unless YOU add it in!
So we are now using an online meal planner to find all our healthy recipes. It break everything down by nutritional facts, gives you ALL the recipes you need, and it is completely customizable! You put in how many calories you want to consume eat day and it tells breaks it down into five different meals that stay within your goal. No more counting calories! No more inputting my meals into that stupid little iPhone app! My favorite part is that it prints out a shopping list with all your ingredients in categories. All the produce together, all the dairy, meat, spices, etc. BEST TOOL EVER!!
Okay I take that back, my FAVORITE part of the meal planner is that you can modify EVERY SINGLE MEAL. I am SO picky and I can name off more things I will NOT eat than things I WILL eat. So when the meal planner tells me I should have codfish that night, well, I’ll just tell you THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. EVER. haha. But I can switch that meal out for a different recipe that I LIKE. The planner is SMART and will remember the meals I am deleting and liking and modify future meals based off what I like. Cool huh?!
To get access to that meal planner you can sign up with on Team BeachBody with a Club Membership. It’s 34.95 for every 3 months. That’s just over 11 bucks a month and even though I am CHEAP – we will be using that thing for the rest of our lives! So worth the money. I suggest this to all my friends so go check it out! You can try it out and if you don’t LOVE the meal planner and all the perks of that club membership you can cancel within 30 days and get your money back.
So that my friends is my tip of the day – USE THE ONLINE MEAL PLANNER and take the guess work out of losing weight!
