Good Nutrition is About Preparation

by - 2:00 PM

Over the last several weeks, I have talked with more people wanting to change their body composition than ever before.  Whether the goal is to lose body fat, gain muscle mass, or both, good nutrition is key.  

There are hundreds of articles on fad diets, "super foods," and supplements to spark weight loss, so many it can be paralyzing to someone just starting this endeavor.  

At times, the fitness industry and the media can tend to complicate these things.  The single most important tip that will really help you see the changes you want in your body composition is preparation.  

"If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail."
-Benjamin Franklin

We know what not to eat. I could walk into a kindergarten class right now and hold up a cookie and an apple and I promise you, most every kid will be able to tell me which is healthier.

The problem is taking action on what we already know.  

How do you prepare?

It starts with making out a grocery list with whole foods and not randomly grabbing junk off the shelf.  

I've have found preparing all your meals one day of the week (preferably on Sunday) is a great way to manage portion sizes and macro-nutrient intake.  It also helps eliminate trips out for fast food when you don't have time or don't feel like cooking. 

Get out a piece of paper, make a grocery list, and prepare healthy meals ahead of time and you WILL see the changes you want.
