Planning Your Diet

We have plans for everything these days. That is how we can fit 100 different
things into each day. While to an extent this seems a bit over doing it, some
things do need to be planned. I don't know why we don't plan our diets. I mean,
we plan everything else. Some people even plan on when they will have sex.
Hence, the birth of hump day. Why not spend a few minutes and plan out what you
will eat? If you are reading this, you have the time so. So sit back and follow
these seven easy steps. Don't blink, if you do it will be over. It is really
that simple.
1. Mini meals are great.
They tell people with certain disease that they should eat several small meals
each day. They say that a person should eat something every two hours. Well,
that isn't too impossible to do. I would suggest that you start out every four
hours. Keep it like you normally would any of your other meals. Make sure you
have your protein and your fiber. Have some veggies and some fruit to balance
everything out. Don't make your mini meal a bucket of fried chicken. I know that
since it is a mini meal, the temptation doesn't seem as great. I mean, if you
only slip up in a mini meal, who is watching?
These are a great way to avoid hunger and improper snacking throughout the day.
Just make your mini meals up and eat them every time that you have planned. If
you plan on eating every two hours, every two hours it is. It doesn't take a
road map to figure this out.
2. Don't go over board.
This is easier said than done. You need to have a specific amount that you are
trying to reduce. If you are trying to reduce your meals by 10%, then you should
stick to that. I'm not suggesting that you break out the calculator and count up
every meal that you have. If you have been on a diet for very long, you already
have a good idea how many calories things have. Don't eat with your eyes, eat
with your mind. That will help you cut down on the amount of food that you eat.
3. Eat good tasting food.
From time to time let yourself go. Eat something that you know you shouldn't. If
you get it out of your system, it will be easier to maintain your diet. If on
the other hand you don't allow yourself to eat things you shouldn't from time to
time, all you will do is hurt yourself in the long run. You are going to nibble
each day on those things instead of just eating them occasionally.
4. Eat your calories, don't drink them.
Don't fill up on sodas and other drinks. You can get all your calories for one
day in these if you do it too much. A few sodas here. A few cups of hot
chocolate there. A few beers here. You get the point. That will put on the
pounds easily.
5. Exercise.
You need to do this to keep fit. Not only will it keep you fit, but it will keep
you mentally sharp as well. That can go a long way in helping you stick to a
diet. If you are depressed, chances are you will end up eating fatty foods that
will make you fat. When you consume all of that fat, it will make you more
depressed. It is a bad cycle to start.
6. Make your meals last.
Chew your damn food son! I bet you heard that one as a kid. Well, it is true.
Don't swallow your food. Instead, eat it slowly and enjoy the taste of it. If
you do this, it will make you feel like you have actually ate something. If you
swallow it down, you won't get the same benefit. You will continue to feel a
7. Discover your food triggers.
