One of the best pieces of advice we can give you if you are trying to loes weight is to be organised.
Being organised means different things to different people, so we have simply put together a list of things that we feel may help you. Obviously, you will work out your own routine over time - our list may offer you some pointers to get started.
Organisation = the art of minimising excuses for not achieving your goals.
Plan your whole day's menu the night before. This way you can be sure that you have all the ingredients on hand. If you try to plan your menu in the morning as you are rushing for work you may run into problems (i.e. lacking the ingredients to make a tasty lunch.)
Have your fridge full of "allowable foods". If you run out of food at any stage, you will be tempted to "cheat" by eating something that is easily available. Remember - you are only cheating yourself.
Cook more than enough food for dinner. This gives you a ready-made lunch for the next day.
A number of our recipes are suitable for freezing. Once you have found a couple of recipes you like, try preparing batches of them and freezing the extra servings for another time. This is extremely handy for those days where you just don't seem to have the time to prepare a meal.
