This is the time of year where many people are taking a step back and evaluating their health and fitness goals. I am. They want to lose weight and get healthy. I do. We want things as streamlined and easy as possible. I do.
I will be using emeals to help plan and organize my family dinners this year. They have meal plans that meet most everyone’s dietary needs: clean eating, paleo, classic, simple gourmet, low carb, low fat, portion control, natural and organic, gluten free, vegetarian.
If you don’t need help planning just dinner you can also use their menu planning system for breakfast and lunch! All your meal planning needs (and grocery lists) packed into one amazing package!
I have signed up for the clean eating program for my family. We are getting back to the basics and limiting as much processed junk as I can manage. The year 2013 is going to be a healthy, active, organized, and money saving year for our family!
Want to get started, but don’t know where to begin? Let’s look at the simple facts for losing weight. With so many people wanting to lose weight and eat healthy this new year, we should know what our calorie intake needs to be based on age and activity level.
Now we know how many calories we need each day, we need to evaluate how many calories we need to burn in order to lose the weight! Did you know that if you consume 500 less calories than you need every day… you lose 1 pound per week! You can cut out those calories either through your food or by burning it through functional movement and exercise.
A simple way to get started with your nutrition and meal planning is by writing everything down. With emeals they provide you meal plan ideas (no more 5 staple meals each week for your family). If you are to be completely honest with yourself and what you are eating, you should maintain a food journal.
Writing down what you eat (how much, when, how you were feeling at the time) will give you an accurate account of your emotional triggers as well as exactly how much (or little) food you are eating each day. This can also be helpful to see if you are eating enough of certain nutritional elements.
So come on, what are you waiting for? Lets #GetHealthy together with emeals this year! Meal planning made simple. Save money. Happy family.
