How to Lose Weight but Never Go Hungry Again–pt. 3


This is the 3rd Wellness Tip in our 8-part weight loss series that began 2 weeks ago and will continue for the next 6 weeks. These tips confirm you don’t have to be hungry in order to lose weight.

Wellness Tip #3: Plan a food menu for the week.

One that’s full of fresh fruits and veggies. This will make it easier to honor the suggestions in last week’s blog.

We all have good intentions, but without a plan it’s difficult to see them through.

When we arrive at the store without a shopping list, we can be tempted to buy a less healthy item.

But when we arrive at the store with a weekly menu and shopping list, we are less inclined to grab for a food we didn’t intend to eat. And, we save money because we don’t spend it unnecessarily on items we don’t need.

The Experiment: Set aside 30 minutes weekly to plan your food menu. Write it down on a piece of paper or use a spreadsheet, whatever you prefer. For one idea, click on this link.

Dr. Barnard’s book that I recommended last week and Colleen’s Challenge have great plans as well.

To continue the ideas from last week’s blog, make sure you include plenty of your favorite fruits, veggies and raw nuts.

Silence Your Inner Critic: You don’t think a written food menu is that important. How could it make that much difference in weight loss? Smile and thank your thoughts, but send them quickly on their way. Do the experiment anyway. You can adopt new, successful strategies that will assist you in your healthy eating goals.

Rock Our World with Your Comments: What is one meal from your menu that was a hit? What made it so special? Write your thoughts in a personal journal, discuss with a friend or family member, or post a comment below. We thrive and grow with your input!
