What are you having for dinner tonight? How about breakfast tomorrow morning?
Did you hesitate at all when you thought about it? Do you have any idea at all?
Now, I bet if I asked you what you’re doing this weekend, you could give me an hour-by-hour itinerary of everything you have going on (except your meals).
I’m sure you don’t shoot from the hip when it comes to paying your bills, either – you have a plan, and you don’t have to think about it.
This is where EVERYONE runs into a problem when it comes to good nutrition: They wait until they’re really hungry and then try to decide where to go and what to get.
Chances are, by the time you reach the point where you are past the point of hunger, you are not going to make good choices.
I think we can all agree that the types of food you eat have a profound effect on every other aspect of your life:
How you feel, how you look, energy levels, sleep, mood, productivity, and on and on.
These are all DIRECTLY affected by what you put in your body – but most people just wing it when it comes to food choices.
I know what you’re thinking, you have so many other things to worry about and I appreciate that.
I’m not saying you have to prepare every meal in advance (but that does work as well).
I’m simply saying that you will see immediate benefit when you put some thought and planning into where your food is coming from.
There is a good chance you have most of your day mapped out in advance, so you need to start making meals and food choices a part of that plan.
Any area of your life where you have been successful, I’m sure there has been planning and a lot of thought put into how you are going to get there.
So, if you want to eat better, you need to take the same steps!
