Why be creative with your food? I have found over the years that 80% of clients do not like to eat the same thing. They like variety and different tastes and textures. So, recipes assist you with getting out of that feeling. Recipes are also easy for families. If there is only time to cook one meal, this is a great way to feed the family and stay losing weight. For some of our clients, they prepare a weeks’ worth of dinners and freeze for the week.

Meal planning is essential for success.  Why? Because if you do not know where you are going, you will never arrive.  Meal planning is your road map to success.  You must understand how you are eating for the day or the week you are in.  I have found that a sense of peace washes over the clients who plan their meals. Before long, this becomes a habit.  Meal planning also sets parameters.  It gives you clear expectations and it provides you routine. Routine is something most people need.

Meal Planning success

Meal planning also saves you time and money.  It is also less stressful.  Planning will keep you calm and avoid feeling out of control.  Most clients do not do well with unknow or last-minute decisions.  It raises their stress levels and they feel out of control, so that leads to eating off-plan, the standard response to handling stress.  That is why you are here!  To deal with this take time! Plan your eating day and week! You can do it!!

The benefits of spending 15 minutes planning your week are: feeling acommplished, feeling fantastic, feeling in control and loving weight loss !

Sausage with Onions and PeppersBy Kevin PetrizioI never thought I could make Italian sausage that works on the plan and tastes great. After trying some tricks I came up with a recipe that really surprised me. I thought it would be dry, but the addition of a tomato to the final recipe really gave the sausage some body and "mouth feel". This whole recipe just works great.
