It’s not just a buzz word or a new diet craze, it’s fact. Having your food prepped and ready to eat keeps you completely on track. Allow yourself two nights a week to prep 3 days meals in advance and keep a day as a social day to enjoy meals with friends and family. Make sure you take your meals with you and you will avoid all external temptations that entice you to make those poor nutritional choices.
I know it seems like a huge chore for a newbie to this organised OCD, structured way of living but I can assure you it’s fail proof and will get you the results you are after.
Everything is rush, rush, rush and convenience foods are everywhere, tempting us with their sugary, greasy, salty produce. This convenience however, is a recipe for disaster in terms of diet goals.
Picture this scenario, you skipped brekkie because you overslept. You rush to the office, you get to 11 o clock and are ready to gnaw the arm off of your boss resulting in you losing your job. Fortunately before you chew off said bosses arm, you get lured in by the office vending machine with its shiny packets and wrappers so you load up on chocolate biscuits and a bag of crisps – that should keep you going until lunchtime.
Lunchtime is here,however you have deadlines to meet so off you rush again, this time to the local cafe, grab a latte and a baguette.
You see where I am going with this? So, now you know why we PREP.
It really doesn’t need to be as daunting as it sounds. Get yourself some Tupperware and mason jars, a few store cupboard staples and a bit of planning and you are off, prepping like a boss.
