You need to plan out your meals

“A failure to plan is a plan to fail” – Ben Franklin

So you are trying to lose weight, gain muscle, be healthier, whatever the goal, as long as it involves your body, you need to eat healthfully.  If you do not naturally gravitate towards whole foods consumption and lean proteins, you need to plan out your meals.

This is a three-phase process:  1) Plan a weeks worth of Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks.  2) Go to the grocery store and get the stuff you need.  3) Prep for meals to make them easy to grab and go.

Suggested plan as follows:

For Breakfast you need a combination of Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats

Eggs and Toast with sliced tomato or strawberries (that is a fruit or vegetable.)

Lunch:  Same thing, A Sandwich, use yummy whole grain bread, spinach or lettuce (a vegetable) Lean meat…. maybe some cheese, mayo with olive oil, mustard.   Make it enjoyable!  Eat it with an Apple.  Drink some iced tea.

Dinner:  Lean meat (steak, chicken, fish or pork loin)  steamed veggies or a salad.  Sautéed veggies are always good.

Snacks,  Protein!  apple/ string cheese, protein shake or protein bar, peanut butter.

With a few Google searches, my website and Pinterest you should find many combinations of meal plans.  If you really want to reach that goal, drop the excuses and start working towards it!
