What Fit People Do For Lunch

If you’re looking to get into shape, what you do at lunch could make or break your goals.

Don’t let lunchtime be your undoing! Here’s one thing you can do right now that will make a major difference:

Meal prep!

Here’s why fit people make most of their meals for the week in one sitting:

The problem with being hungry is that you’ll literally eat just about anything to satisfy that feeling. Your body will crave the fattiest, most unhealthy food because those are instant and plentiful calories and it’s not sure when it will be able to eat again.

But you know full well you’ll be eating again later that day, so instead of grabbing the first thing you see, prepare your lunches for the week so you can avoid temptation.

On Sunday, make healthy meals that include lean protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and a vegetable. Here’s a sample dish:

  • 4 oz. baked skinless chicken breast
  • ¾ cup cooked rice (white or brown)
  • frozen spinach
  • ½ avocado

Having a meal already prepared means you won’t be tempted to eat a burger and fries for lunch. You’ll get even better results if you plan out your other meals as well.
