Set Menus/ Set Meal Plans
- Knowing exactly what you’re eating everyday. This reduces decision fatigue immensely, which is a huge factor when it comes to dietary adherence. The more decisions you need to make each day, the higher the likelihood of making a bad decision later in the day. Ever wondered why nobody wakes up and has a tub of ice cream yet can easily happen just before bed? Now you know.
- Automatically eliminates many other options. Whatever is on the plan you consume, whatever is not, you don’t. Too many choices is not a good thing, especially when it comes to your nutritional approach.
- The foods in your plan are going to be highly nutritious, filling and tailored to your own preferences to a great degree.
- Can be highly motivating to adhere to when seeing quick results which is down to just eliminating a lot of processed foods.
