Meal planning to avoid bad choices.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I have proven over and over again that I make poor choices about food. I will order the most fattening meal on the menu every time. Its like I have a sixth sense for high calorie foods. My only hope is to eliminate opportunities for bad choices. For me, this means planning all of my meals for the day either in the morning or the night before. Cooking up large batches of something yummy from the spark recipies and having it ready to go in single servings in the fridge is efficient and so far very successful.

No choices means no bad choices. Eventually I like to think I will learn to make good choices. Until then, this is working for me.

    Glad you found something that works for you! I pack meals for work also. I have to, I'm there for 3 meals and 2 snacks. But the SO and I usually end up eating out once or twice a week due to band gigs. I try to check out the venue menu online and make a choice before I go. But that's not always possible and sometimes, I've been known to deviate! But I always ask myself, do I want this more than I want to see my collar bones?, Is this the best choice I can make? Is there another perhaps more healthy option to this that will also give me the same satisfaction? Can I alter or get substitutions to make this the choice I need? I'll order a burger with no bun, sub the fries for a salad or give them to my SO. I'll ask for extra veggies, even if all that's available are celery sticks. It's not always easy to be good to me when I'm so much better at being bad! But I try.
