Variety is Overrated

It turns out that being in a food rut can actually help you lose weight! Who knew!?

Even though dietary variety is good for nutrition, it makes you eat more. Studies show that when people eat the same foods often, they eat less without even knowing it! Use this to your advantage by doing some of the following:

  • cook a big pot of something healthy once a week and eat it for several meals.
  • plan to have the same super-healthy meal every Monday night to get your week off to a good start.
  • put a few healthy foods on your “permanent grocery list” so that you always have them around (e.g., apples, fat-free cottage cheese, frozen stir-fry veggies and Ready-Pac salad greens.)

These things also make cooking a lot simpler, so now you can use your extra time and creativity to spice up your workouts!
