Most people believe that if they knew what to eat, they would probably reach their fitness goals and a meal plan sounds pretty good.
But do we really need to get into a meal plan?
There are certain factors why it doesn't actually work:
First, meal plans can be tough to follow.
Well, this is normal for everyone.
Especially those who are starting to get into a healthy lifestyle.
It's easier to start with a game plan that allows you to improve one habit at a time.
Ask yourself, am I more likely to succeed if follow an entire meal plan or if I identify ways I can improve my nutrition over time?
Meal plans aren't really necessary, as long as you know how to strategize.
They can be helpful for short periods of time, but they do not teach you how to eat out, how to eat when you are off of the meal plan, or how much food you need for your specific goal.
It's been a part of the fitness and nutrition industry for a while now.
But what they don't tell you is the one that you need to hear.
Most meal plans you are stuck eating foods that you don't enjoy and feel deprived from meals off of your plan.
Sticking to a meal plan typically means you have to eat only a specific type of food and is easy to get tired of the same foods.
Plus the nutrients that your body gets may not be what you specifically need to fuel your body and perform at your best.
Formulating your own game plan for what to eat on a weekly basis can be overwhelming.
You have to consider a lot of things before getting started.
This is why it is best to seek a consultant when doing so.
It can give you a better view of what to expect, and what to do rather than diving headfirst into the unknown.
Having that plan of attack can help you make adjustments to fit your life and achieve the results that you want
If you create a plan that works for you and allows you to focus on improving your current nutrition habits it is way easier than completely overhauling your nutrition all at once.
Get in the habit of asking yourself what can I do? and what can I do consistently?
With the right attitude, and approach there is nothing holding you back.
Are you interested in learning more? There are tons of programs that can help you in your journey.
Ultimately, meal plans are a quick fix approach to temporary results. In order to make the consistent sustainable change, you have to have a consistent game plan and focus on getting to the next level.
Drop the wrong mindset, and focus on taking one step at a time to improve your nutrition.
