Meal planning can help you save time and lose weight as part of weight loss program.
If you’ve been trying to lose weight for some time, you have probably told yourself one (or more!) of these things from time to time:
- I’m too busy to exercise
- I’m too busy to make different meals for everyone in my family
- I’m too busy to plan, shop for, and cook nutritious, balanced meals that will support my weight loss goals.
These excuses are probably grounded in truth: like most people, you probably are very busy! With work, kids, a partner and a social life, your own health and wellbeing can be put at the bottom of the priorities list. But nevertheless, these are still excuses. Don’t let ill health be the prompt you need to prioritise your health and to get on-track with your weight loss plan.
When life feels too busy to stick to a weight loss program, meal planning can help.
You might be thinking: Not another thing to take my time and try to keep track of!? But that’s far from the truth.
Meal planning takes much of the stress out of meal preparation. The idea isn’t to add another thing to your to-do list, but to replace the weekly (or daily!) struggle of deciding what to eat with a carefully designed plan.
A typical person who is not on a meal plan will spend time each week planning what to cook, going to the grocery store to buy the ingredients (facing the temptation of unhealthy snacks and junk food while they’re there!), and then preparing each meal individually. Jenny Craig’s meal plans eliminate almost all of that planning, which will save you time. After meeting with a Consultant to discuss your diet and lifestyle needs, you’ll receive your weekly meals that are pre-prepared and ready to heat and eat.
Meal plans for weight loss are designed by nutritionists and weight loss experts. Dietitians know the best foods to include so that you’re nourished, energised and satisfied without adding excess kilojoules. As part of a weight loss program they can help you lose fat and feel healthier.
Jenny Craig’s meal plans include much of the food you already love to eat, but in healthier, portion-controlled versions.
The only time commitment you’ll need to make is meeting with a Jenny Craig consultant.
