People try to eat well. Nobody starts the day with a list about bad foods that they will eat before going to bed. Many people don’t have the ti or the patience to plan healthy meals that fit their busy lifestyles.
Planning a Healthy meals starts with knowing what and when you eat. It is important that you take a week to record everything you eat. A lot of people have three to four cups of coffee each morning. They also have a donut at their desk for breakfast and a handful of granola bars before lunch. Most people grab a quick burger with fries and coffee for lunch because they don’t have much time. They’ll finish the rest of their granola bars and then eat a few candy bars to fuel their energy for the drive home. They may need to attend a meeting after dinner where they can drink more coffee, eat cake or cookies, and then return home for a relaxing bowl ice cream.
Two things will happen when this person starts to eat healthy. They will experience a severe headache as they cut out the sugar their bodies has become dependent on. They will also experience withdrawal symptoms due to the chemicals they are dependent on that are found in the junk and fast food they eat.
Most people don’t eat well because of these factors and the time-intensive nature of “healthy meals”. Healthy meal plans should assume that the person who is planning them has eaten for a while. You must have a plan that addresses cravings, withdrawals, and headaches associated with eating bad food “cold turkey”.
Start simple to create healthy meal plans that are easy to follow for busy people. It is easier to plan one portion of your meals at once and follow the plan for a week, then expand on it over time. It is entirely up to you.
Many healthy meal plans do not consider that snacks can be a meal. They will be more successful in creating a plan that includes snacks. Start creating a healthy meal plan, with some changes that will help your body prepare for healthy meals.
