Spark Solution Meal Plan Success

Thursday, May 16, 2013

I've been following the menu plan in the Spark Solution book this week ... with a few modifications. They really pack in the vegetables which is awesome. It also means I get to eat a lot more food since those vegetables are not very high in calories. Yesterday an interesting thing happened. I was eating my planned lunch and I realized I was full before I finished eating my lunch. What??? Aren't I usually feeling hungry when I watch what I eat?

Well, I wrapped up the rest of my lunch and put it in the refrigerator for later. Then when I was fixing dinner and that old habit of wanting to munch while I cooked dinner tried to tempt me, I got out my lunch leftovers to keep me satisfied. No reaching for those convenient items that are a nutrition nightmare. No wrecking my eating plan without thinking. I felt so empowered. I can do this! Thanks Spark People for another awesome resource!

    I am just starting because just got my Spark Solution book. I got encouragement from your blog. I was having some serious doubts that this would work for me. It was a great idea to save what you wasn't hungry for and use it to snack on when preparing next meal. I will have to remember that one. Thanks

    adding vegetables is a good way to feel full without adding a lot of calories.
