Or even next week.
We all know we need to eat a bit better.
And putting it off is always the easier option.
How many times have you told yourself that you’ll start it next week?
Because you have a busy weekend of treats, booze and junk food (again).
Yet forgetting to start next week or delaying it once more.
It’s nothing to be annoyed at and totally normal.
But it really doesn’t need to be that complicated.
Most reading this are trying to lose body fat, get more energy and be fitter & stronger.
To achieve that, we need to be in a calorie deficit.
Be burning more energy than comes in.
Now every diet you have ever heard of all achieve a calorie deficit.
Some are more extreme than others.
As you may know, at THQ we achieve that following our meal planner & cookbooks or tracking calories (which allows more flexibility).
And it’s this tracking of calories that people roll their eyes at.
I totally get it, trying to track calories if you’ve got a lot on is the last thing you need.
But there are a few simple things you can do to help you get into a calorie deficit without tracking.
At every meal have lean protein and lots of vegetables.
It will keep you full, satiated and less likely to go routing through the treat’s cupboard for more! If you are a big “carby” fan at meals, half the portion and add extra veg.
Cook more meals are home.
If you are often buying ready-made meals, ordering off takeaway apps, eating out at restaurants, you’ll be eating meals that are a lot higher in calories than you think.
Don’t drink your calories.
Booze, sugar drinks, creamy milkshakes pretending to be a coffee (no coffee needs syrup, ice cream, biscuits & squirty cream in it). Once in a while treat yes, every day – certainly not!
Eat your snacks
Yes, you read that correct, you often hear don’t snack. But if you are regularly having 2-3 high protein meals a day, you can have a snack a day as well.
Make it high in protein like a boiled egg, protein bar/shake, jerky, Greek yoghurt & honey.
Be careful though, if you find yourself having more snacks than meals, that’s what’s going wrong, change this around.
Eating doesn’t have to be boring, bland and restrictive.
Use the above tips and see how much better you look and feel WITHOUT having to “start” the diet tomorrow.
