Are you sick and tired of eating the same old food day in and day out from your healthy eating plan?
Are you at the point where the thought of eating one more high protein low carb diet meal of grilled chicken and broccoli makes you want to puke?
Or maybe you’ve lost your appetite altogether because your exercise plan and diet makes you feel like you’re connected to a ball and chain dragging your body to home, work, training and bed.
So what can YOU do about it? LOTS!
If you’re in the above situation then you will value and put into action the following healthy diet tips to get your eating program back on track.
1. First off, you need to admit that you’re experiencing a FOOD RUT!
“D-uh” – I hear you say!
Don’t laugh because the above symptoms can be caused from stress at work, colds, or other conditions so it’s easy just to pass it off as something that will “come good eventually”.
2. Then you need to figure out what part of your healthy eating diet plan needs work.
a. Are you eating enough or too much? It’s easy when you are training to lose body fat to think that eating a lot less is best! Well this isn’t entirely correct and could ruin your training efforts if your eating plan doesn’t suit your training requirements and goals.
If you’re eating regime isn’t supporting your training “calorie-wise” then your body will be battling to survive your everyday activities, let alone your workout regime. And if you’re consuming too much, then you’re body is going to battle burning off those extra calories, leading to it being stored as body fat.
b. Are you stuck in the same eating plan routine? Look, there’s nothing wrong with having a regular eating routine, in fact it’s great, BUT if you’re absolutely miserable because you can’t stand eating the same meals everyday of the year then you definitely need to make some changes.
c. Are you eating too much of the one food? Are you eating rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week. Or maybe you’ve been eating nothing but chicken or turkey for the past 6 months and have to force yourself to swallow it.
d. Maybe your eating program doesn’t suit your training needs. Maybe you’re not eating enough protein. Or you maybe eating too many starchy carbs eg… you may need to focus more on consuming foods such as broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, peppers, sweet potatoes, whole-grain bread, lean proteins etc…
e. Do you even have an eating plan? It’s easy to get caught up amongst all the supposed dieting tips and diet advice to the point where you’re so far out of whack with your healthy eating program it’s not funny. Are you just playing guessing games each day and “hoping for the best” because you figure if you’re exercising regularly you can eat whatever you want anyway?
f. Are you being honest about following your exercise plan and diet plan? “YES – I follow my eating plan BUT I don’t get any results”. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard this, yet once a person’s written down what they have really eaten for the last two weeks it would make anyone put on 2-3 kilos!
