Secrets of Success

Cook Ahead




Maintenance is tough. Don't come into the house starving without a thing to eat. Spend some time on the weekend preparing ahead. A couple of recipes cooked and pre-portioned in the fridge makes it much easier to be a success on a busy week night when you simply don't feel like breaking out the cookware. Plus, you have a nice home cooked meal to sit down to ... now, that's a treat!

  • This is ULTIMATELY what has helped me stay within my maintenance weight. You can't say "i don't have anything i guess i'll order out or hit up the vending machine". You CAN say, I know what I'll be eating when i get hungry...and you'll know exactly how many calories, etc you will be putting in to your mouth.

    Great tip! - by BTRUE2YOU
    I make a meal plan too so that first thing in the morning I know what needs to be pulled out for supper.
    Who ever is home first can start supper because they know exactly what is on the menu. - by CHARLOTTEPI
