It’s true that half the battle takes place in the kitchen. One of my favorite local running stores offers a simple weight loss plan written on a board in the back of the store: “eat less and run more“. If the weight isn’t coming off, then eat less and run more. It may be overly simplistic, but the basic tenant is true: manage your caloric intake and get regular exercise commensurate with your health and you will see results.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a reddit fan, and I recently came across a post in the r/MealPrepSunday sub reddit that linked to a blog hosted by a medical student’s foray into meal prepping. It has some really practical advice on setting up your kitchen, and includes some great, simple recipes that you can use to plan and create your own breakfast, lunch and dinner meals.
Remember that this is part of becoming a better version of you. It’s time to start improving your health, your body, and your mind.
