It’s 2018, and people still believe the only way to eat healthy is to have tilapia and broccoli 6 times a day. What a shame.
Let me let you in on a little secret- you CAN enjoy what you eat and get results. Finding meals that you actually look forward to is one of the most important parts of good nutrition.
Just about anybody can starve themselves for a few days and lose weight.
Most people can jump on the latest fad diet for a couple weeks and shed some pounds.
A few can choke down their coach’s designated meal plan (that never changes and revolves around the same exact foods every single day) for a few months and get in great shape.
But then what?
Once the first sign of adversity hits, people resort right back to their bad habits, ultimately gaining back all of the weight they lost (and then some).
So how do you make sure that doesn’t happen to you? EAT FOOD THAT YOU LIKE.
Creating meals that you look forward to eating will not only make you more excited about your diet, it will improve your adherence to it. Improved adherence leads to better results, and better results leads to long-term success. Sustainability is always the end goal.
You don’t have to be a 5-star chef to whip up some decent meals, either. Here’s the latest thing that my wife has been hooked on:
Healthy Asian Rice Bowl
- 6 oz. shrimp
- 1/2 cup rice
- Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (best soy sauce substitute)
