A common statement we hear from busy parents and business people is “I simply don’t have enough time to eat this way”.
At M10, we’ve become pretty good at helping people overcome this! Often it’s not that people don’t want to eat right, they simply don’t know how to. Follow our 3 top tips to help you stay compliant with your fat loss eating plan no matter how busy your day is.
"I regularly eat in restaurants and there’s nothing right on the menu for me."
If you eat out regularly and you’re trying to stick to your fat loss eating plan, one thing you can do is ask the restaurant to design your meals the way you want them to be. Often restaurants have the food you need to eat and it may not even be on the menu. A great tip is to simply ask for your protein portion to be doubled, leave out the starchy vegetables and double the vegetable portions they give you.
I’ve got a busy schedule and I don’t have enough time to make all the food in the day.
Set aside time once a week to prepare your food. Make a shopping list, go and get the food, and then prepare the whole week or even 3 days’ worth of meals ahead of time.
Before you go shopping, write your food plan out for the week. If you know your diary ahead of time, you can plan when, where and how you’re going to be able to eat.
You may find it easier to look at your weekly plan and work out which meals take longer to cook if you’re always busy and make it those ones that you’ll prepare ahead of time.
I’m in and out of meetings all day
You make your day hectic; so take a step back a regain control of your day! Make sure you know what sort of a day you have ahead and plan when you are going to be able to eat. Condense meals if need be for a particularly busy day, for example I’ll prepare 4 meals instead of 6 if I know time to eat will be an issue.
