GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Be strict with meals but flexible with ingredients. Say you like a daily omelette for breakfast – one day, add broccoli; the next, tomatoes. Result?
Max weight loss and flavour. What’s not to love?
SO, WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT KICK KILOS?
Basically, having go-to meals. Knowing what you’re going to eat takes the emotion out of the equation, so you’re less likely to choose junk on impulse. It also helps with maintenance: people who stick to a regimen are 1.5 times more likely to keep off the weight they’ve lost.
OK, BUT I’M ALREADY BORED...
True, eating the same thing every day can be tough long-term. But remember: a healthy, varied diet has been shown to help fight excess body fat. Serious food for thought!
