How to plan for maximum diet success?


I can’t over-emphasise how important planning is to maximise your weight loss success. Lack of planning is a key factor in the failure of many a diet. When you are hungry and looking to grab something quick you need to have your healthy food and snacks readily available. If you food isn’t available then you are going be prey to your old habits and head for the quick fix junk foods. These foods are the culprits for those quick spikes and drops in your blood sugars, and they inevitably derail your diet.

I would even go as far as to say that if you don’t plan your meals and snacks properly, you dramatically reduce your weight loss success. So if planning is so key to your diet success then how do you go about planning?

Planning is a three-step process which involves recipe planning, meal planning and shopping. So to start off with let’s begin by planning your recipes. I advise clients to try plan recipes for two weeks. For starters a two week plan gives you enough variety. Secondly you can easily cycle your two week recipe plan over and over again without getting bored.


Recipe planning


There are many resources available to find diet-approved, healthy recipes. You can try Pinterest, Google, Instagram and I have many healthy recipes on my blog for you too. If you would like this part of the planning done for you then have a look at Dinner planner 1   or Dinner planner 2  or  One month planner if you want a whole month pre-planned for you.  Make sure to keep your recipes in a place that’s easy to find so that they are always easily accessible.

Meal planning

The next step is to take these recipes and write them down onto a weekly meal planner. This step is important so that your week is already planned out for you. This way you never have to think what to make for dinner that day because it is already written down. These free planners are available for you to get going with your planning:  FREE WEEKLY DINNER PLANNER or FREE MONTHLY MEAL PLANNER  FREE WEEKLY PLANNER


Shopping lists


The following part of your plan is to prepare your shopping list. Use the recipes that you have collected and make a shopping for each week on your planner. Take this list with you to the shops and this way you will have all your ingredients ready for the whole week.

By doing these steps you ensure that you have everything you need in place. You are now ready to get going with your diet and nothing should stand in your way. You have planned the perfect diet week and have everything at hand for perfect diet success.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
