Take a list of foods that you can eat with you to the store and do not deviate from it. If you only purchase items that are on the list, you are creating a healthy habit and you will encourage yourself to stick to it. If you deviate from the list, you are giving yourself the option to not stick with the plan.
Venture out and try something new on the list each week. You don’t know if you like something until you try it. If you see a recipe that you would like to try, but it doesn’t fit your “plan,” then modify your recipe, don’t modify the plan.
Don’t think of this plan as a diet, because its not. Diets are something you do for a period of time, but eating healthy is a way of life. That does not mean you need to restrict yourself. Find healthy options or alternatives. Instead of picking up a doughnut, go for a sweet apple, something that is satiating to your body and to your sweet tooth. (Plan this ahead of time, so when the time comes, you have a healthy option waiting for you)
