2. Prepare Your Meal
Everyone knows when they are on a diet they will look after what foods or drinks will be consumed by them. When you are on diet, every meal you consume will affect how much weight you will lose. Therefore, you have to limit the meals you consume everyday. The way to limit your food each day is to know how much your body daily caloric needs. According to Dietary Guidelines for Americans, women need around 2000 calories daily and men need around 2500 calories but it also depends on age, height, weight, etc. If you want your diet to be successful you have to prepare your meal to have less calories than what your daily caloric needs but do not do too much. Because too many calories can harm your body.
Your meals also need to contain vital nutrients that your body needs to thrive. If you do not eat nutritional food, your body fatigue and immune system will drop down and you probably can get sick easily. By knowing food’s nutrients, it will give you the flexibility to eat various different foods during your diet and your diet will be less boring. You also have to find the meal that fits you, if you do not like what you eat you will lose your motivation for diet. That is why you have to prepare the meal you like so you enjoy your diet and it will boost your motivation to continue your diet plan until you reach your goal.
3. Make Your Meal Time Schedule
By paying attention to when you eat your meals also affect the success of your diet. It is as important as when you choose what kinds of food you eat. In fact, our body metabolism is different from each other, it depends on how you process your meal. For example, if you have 3 meals a day, you cannot take it all during noon because it will make you crave in the morning and evening. You have to eat it in the morning, afternoon and evening so your body does not feel hungry during the day and it will be healthier. Some studies say to keep you from feeling too hungry and looking for unhealthy choices to satisfy your hunger you have to give a three hours interval from eating your meals and your snacks.
Many nutritionists say breakfast is the most important meal and also recommend having it early in the morning. A high protein breakfast is good if you are on a weight loss program, it will help you feel less hungry through the day because high protein breakfast reduces the risk of fat accumulation in your body. Having an early lunch is also good for your diet, a study that is published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that dieters who had their lunch early were able to lose more weight than who had it late. Having dinner before 7 pm also helps you shed more kilos. A study conducted by Brigham Young University showed that men who have early dinner and consume healthy snacks 2 hours before sleep can help you lose more weight.
4. Learn and Adjust
Keep track of your meal plan. By tracking your meal plan, you can learn how effective your plan is. You can also make an adjustment if you think your meal plan is not working as you want. Make sure you enjoy whatever meal you consume, if you don’t enjoy it or are bored with your food you can change your meal plan but you have to keep it on track.
