BODY FOR LIFE was developed so that you are nourishing your body every two to three hours with balanced, delicious meals and snacks. The beauty of this program is that by having small, frequent meals, your body never has the chance to go into starvation mode, which makes it easier to make nutritious food choices. Here are some other suggestions for how to make the BODY FOR LIFE nutrition plan work for you:
Set aside a day to plan out your meals for the week. Be sure to take into account any special events, meetings or potential conflicts that might make it hard for you to eat a nutritious meal and plan accordingly.
Many past Champions picked Sunday to do their shopping and cooking. This way you will be prepared for the week with pre-made meals, which takes the guess work out of what to have for lunch or dinner.
You can buy frozen, skinless chicken breasts, cans of tuna, eggs, milk, vegetables and fruit, all in bulk and at discount prices. Stock your refrigerator, freezer and pantry with these nutritious foods to remove temptation.
Plan your meals so leftovers from dinner can be packed and eaten as lunch the next day. Chop up your chicken breast from the night before and add it to an omelet for breakfast or slice it and serve with mixed greens and veggies as a tasty salad.
