So you know what to eat. You know how much to eat. You know when to eat. All this knowing is actually the easy part. Actually doing what you know is the hard part and it becomes even harder if you are not prepared. Dr. John Berardi says, “Sometimes good nutrition is not about the food as much as it is about making sure the food is available when it’s time to eat”. You can not expect to carry out good nutrition by just winging it. You have to have good foods available. You have to know what your next meal or snack is going to be. Even better you should know what your next 3-4 meals or snacks are going to be.
If you are looking for some magical preparation strategies there really is none. Good preparation strategies consist of habits such as: having a grocery list, cooking up some meals on Sunday for the upcoming week, getting up a bit earlier to make sure you’re prepared for the upcoming day or maybe having some supplemental protein at your disposal.
Being prepared will help you develop consistency. Developing consistency will help you be successful.
