What evolved us to make it here, will not get us there.
Here’s what I mean by that…
Back in the day when we were cavemen & women, we had to search out food and eat as much of it as possible whenever we found it since we didn’t know when we’d find it again.
That worked for us then.
After all, that’s what got us here.
But now, due to the abundance of food available to us, that approach is no longer useful.
In fact, that approach is very detrimental to keeping us at a healthy weight.
All the extra food we take in, that our bodies don’t need for fuel, is stored as fat.
There is a way to overcome this though.
We have to purposefully make food decisions ahead of time.
If we want to lose weight and keep it off, we have to be very intentional about our food choices.
Making these decisions ahead of time allows us the opportunity to make healthier choices.
If we wait and “play it by ear” or “go with the flow”, we tend to make less healthy food choices in the spur of the moment.
Key #1: Plan all food the night before you need it.
Key #2: Decide 24 hours in advance and then follow through.
This prevents us from making decisions on the fly, which are usually driven by primitive urges and don’t serve our long-term desires.
The more we practice making decisions ahead of time, the better we get at it and the easier it will be.
Give it some thought…
