One of my favorite sayings when it comes to losing weight is this- a healthy diet and exercise go hand in hand. What most people do not realize about losing weight is that moving from a size 18 to a size 12 is only the first step. In fact, losing weight is not the big challenge. The real challenge is keeping the weight off. For this reason, I always try to inspire my clients to embrace a full lifestyle change whenever they are trying to lose weight. Moreover, I try to get them to embrace a full diet change that will help them to keep the weight off in the long run.
While changing your eating habits can be a bit intimidating at first, this lifestyle shift has uncountable positive benefits. Some of which you may not even be aware of. Although you may have to swap out your love for takeout and midnight snacking for healthier alternatives, you will enjoy perks such as an increase in your energy levels and a generally healthier body. Not to mention, you will finally be able to keep those extra pounds at bay.
There are many weight loss diets that you can choose from to kick start your healthy lifestyle. However, my favorite option is a meal prep diet for the simple reason that it works on so many different levels. If you are unfamiliar with the term, ‘meal prep’ is simply short for ‘meal preparation.’ What this diet entails is careful planning and preparation of meals beforehand. Meaning, you can plan and prepare meals for the next few days or even for a week beforehand.
