Fit 144: Practice Motivation with a buddy, Most effective Ab exercises, Grocery Planning for Success.
A guaranteed success for weight loss or body sculpting is having a plan! It is especially important to have a plan for Grocery Shopping. Sure, it sounds easy, but how often do you do it?
You must plan you main meals AND your other meals and snacks if you want to reach a fitness goal. Not only will this relieve the stress of shopping at the grocery store, it will certainly put you on a nutrition success path! You need to decide what your meals are going to be and what ingredients you will need to prepare them. Be sure to include portion sizes when planning your meals.
Always eat before you go shopping! If you are hungry when you go to the grocery store, you will be more prone to making impulse purchases that aren’t good for you!
Nutritionally, you will always be better off if you prepare your meals yourself. You will also find that the volume of food you can eat is much greater too! If you think you don’t have the time to cook, think again. The internet is full of wonderful meals that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. Double the recipe, use containers and you'll have meals prepared for the next day!
