Weight loss diet plan

Failing to plan is planning to fail. We all have heard the saying right so why do we still fail to plan. Planning is everything and like everything that requires a plan so does your diet. We suppose to eat to live not live to eat. We should love our food but not let it control us nor should it be our master.
During this article, I want to show you how important it is to plan our meals to live well and live long. I always wondered why is smoking in public banned but eating a horrifying amount of calories not banned from public or why are restaurants allowed to slowly kill us with their “Fast Food” ?
Is it called fast food because we on a fast track to heart attacks or type two diabetes? Where are the regulators of what we eat and why is poison available everywhere we look? That It is so important that we plan our meals and have a plan of what we want to eat. Most fast foods are bought because people want to eat now. By the time they get to the counter they are so famished that they make horrible decisions.
Well, this is an easy fix as when your meals are planned you will seldom want to hit the drive-through. I want to show you a few ways of eating better and I will also add some recipe’s for you and give you a meal plan for a week as an indication of how we can eat ourselves thin. It is a weight loss diet plan but mostly it is sustainable and not going to starve you. Weight loss can be dramatic or slow depending on how you want to do it I personally recommend that you do it healthily and that it is sustainable.
There is no point in losing weight fast and then gaining all of it equally fast, sustainability is key. Estimates are that woman burn about 2000 calories a day just by living and men about 2800 calories. Here comes that word again “calorie deficit”. That is what you will need to slim down. A deficit between the averages and what you eat.
If you exercise regularly you may move the figure up. Keep in mind of the calories that you eat, most fast food burgers are so high in calories even with exercise I doubt that you will work it off. One fast food burger that I love has 1277 Calories in a single meal so forget about the drive through if you want to lose weight. I think its perfectly ok to have it now and then if you are prepared to work for these foods. Now get on the treadmill and look how long you have to run to burn off 1277 calories. A rough estimate is 90 minutes, now think of this again are you prepared to do this then, by all means, go ahead.
Just remember this is one meal in a day and you definitely will eat more than that so make a calculated decision. This is just to give you some perspective of what you are putting in your body. I do calorie counting but also give myself off days. Not that I eat all the bad stuff just to take a breather and not overthink. I do eat what I want these days but still, keep in mind that I don’t want to pay for the whole of next week for the damage I caused the weekend. So I want us to plan a few meals to lose weight so I think a good time is for a week.
I want to look at the tasty good food that will help you slim down but keep in mind a little exercise also goes a long way.

Everyone will have a different weight loss journey and I want to encourage you to share yours with us so we can share in each other’s success and pass it on so that we can all learn from each other and live better and most importantly to eat better. Whatever you do remember to calorie count so you can be assured of success and weight loss. When it comes to weekends be careful as we tend to think because we eat so well in the week that we can just let our hair down and then over eat and ruin the calorie deficit we worked so hard on.
What I would suggest that you do is have a cheat meal a week. Something you really love that reminds you of your journey and something that inspires you to do better. There are so much healthy delicious foods out there it is up to you to find them and prepare them in such a way that you are satisfied. It won’t always be easy but it is most definitely worth your time.
