Meal plans are solely a tool, and in the event you are preparing for a fitness show, or a quick and small body composition goal, I might write you up something close. But if you are one of millions trying to figure out how to eat right for your health and/or you have a significant body composition goal, a meal plan can you set up for complete disaster. Your eating behaviors are habits you’ve been practicing for years or even decades. A new meal plan could contain as many as 100 new habits to master and, for most people, tackling one new habit at a time is enough to chew off.
Think of each preparation step, grocery store purchase and cooking technique as its very own habit to practice. If you never eat breakfast, and are planning to via the new meal plan, it might be a task in itself just to practice waking up earlier! But now you’ve got to also make something, then pack today’s assigned lunch, etc. This equals too many new things up from.
