Having a plan in place is the key to success when it comes to healthy eating that gets results & it has to be a plan that works for your lifestyle. We’ve found that people are generally successful with some sort of plan in place, even if it’s imperfect. An imperfect plan is better than no plan at all!
If you aren’t planning, you’re winging it. When you’re winging it, you’re more than likely going to stick with any previous bad habits or go for quick and convenient.
