Recently I decided that I wanted to eat very clean for the foreseeable future.
I wouldn’t say I’m out of shape or anything of that nature but I could certainly lose 10 lbs.
Plus I have a history of heart disease and now that I’m in my 40s, it’s not a great idea to mess around anymore.
But here’s the thing:
I’ve been down this path before and I’ve failed before.
But it’s not for the reasons most people fail at changing their eating habits.
Most people fail because they succumb to the junk food. Eventually the cravings win over.
That happens to me too but it’s for one reason: lack of healthy food in the house. Seriously.
It gets to a point where I’m like, “how many more cups of broccoli can I eat as a snack?”
The real problem I face is a lack of selection and sheer lack of the amount of healthy food I need.
So this time around I went all out.
I just bought 5 lbs of rice. Ordered 5 lbs of cooked, seasoned chopped pieces of chicken from some delivery company, and I signed up for a meal prep service that’ll give me 8 healthy dinners a week.
I’ve always found the hardest time for me is dinner time.
Usually I can go a whole day and eat really clean and then it all turns to shit at dinner.
If I already have a dinner made for me it’s gonna be a whole lot easier.
Why do I bring all this up?
Because sometimes preparation can account for a TON in your life.
The more convenient it is do to something, the more likely you’ll do it.
The thing is, YOU have to make it convenient for yourself.
