Step by Step with the eating plan

It is a big mistake if we don't plan ahead for consuming regular meals, if we want to change our way of life. Destination without an appropriate plan is just an empty wish. We are all aware of having a desire, but that is is not enough. We have to take action and prepare ourselves in advance. That is why we need to create a meal plan in advance and do a lot of exercising, at least 30 minutes per day. The article is about progressive steps that we should take into a consideration when we try to start to make new eating plans.

Five important steps you should consider when creating an eating plan:

  • 1st Step: No meal should be missed! EXAMPLE:

- Breakfast: oatmeal, skim milk, coffee or tea, pear

- Snack: Apple

- Lunch: turkey breast grilled, stewed tomatoes and zucchini, brown rice

- Snack: plain yogurt

- Dinner: tuna salad with tomatoes, half wheat bun

  • 2nd Step: Control portion size! EXAMPLE: bread roll counts as one serving.
  • 3rd Step: Ensure adequate fluid intake! EXAMPLE: Every hour, drink one glass of water.
  • 4th Step: Be realistic, self-critical and flexible. EXAMPLE: Occasionally, treat yourself to dessert, lets say at the birthday party, but do not go back to eating without any restrictions. You should never let a single dessert turn into an excuse to stop eating by the plan. Drop the attitude "all or nothing '. If you eat a piece of cake, don't say to yourself: "I have sinned and now I can eat the rest of the cake." Small sin does not become an excuse for overeating because you will not gain control of nutrition. You should rather take it as a stimulation!
  • 5th Step: Reduce the calories and fat foods. Try to make reminders that will help you prevent enjoying unhealthy food. EXAMPLE: check your pantry, refrigerator, kitchen cabinets, drawers, all places where you keep and store the food and find out what you can discard, or at least reduce the amount to prevent temptation.


Your food plan should include the recommended foods that provide your body all the necessary nutrients and avoid foods inadvisable in the table. This will help you create your meal.

1.) Recommended food:

- Eggs: white, whole egg, prepared without fat;
