How to Stick to Your Diet Resolutions with FizzUp
Did you make a pact with yourself on December 31 to start eating a healthier diet? Typically, all it takes is a few changes to your nutrition habits, but sometimes, it’s hard to know how to go about it. Luckily, the FizzUp trainer is here to help you stick to your diet resolutions and feel your fittest all year long!
MAKING YOUR DIET RESOLUTIONS
On January 1, you might have decided to change your diet for the better. Now it’s one month later and you still haven’t taken any action toward reaching this goal? Procrastination rears its ugly head when you say, “I’ll start tomorrow.” Stop! If you want to alter your eating routine, you have to figure out why you do and then set yourself a concrete goal.
There are a lot of reasons why you might be making a diet resolution: to lose weight, build muscle, feel better in your body, improve your overall health or keep illness at bay. Whatever your reason is, you’ve always got to keep it in mind. You could even write it down so that you’ve got a constant visual reminder of what’s pushing you to take action. Make sure your goals are measurable and attainable, like waking up 20 minutes earlier to have enough time to eat breakfast.
To achieve your goal, you have to change your lifestyle. Even though it might seem like you’re making too many sacrifices right now, once you reach the top, you’ll know that it was all worth it.
PLAN OUT YOUR MEALS
So you’ve decided to take control of your eating habits, but you don’t know how. Get FizzUp Nutrition* and take the hassle and guesswork out of having a wholesome diet. Plan out meals from A to Z that are right for you and your body goal. Just tap the Meal Plans icon. Not only does the FizzUp trainer make your diet resolution so much easier to attain with the meal planner, but also with our handy shopping list.
When you plan your meals, you’ll know exactly which ingredients you’ll need when you do your shopping! At the supermarket, start by putting the heavier items (such as milk and water) at the bottom of your basket so you don’t experience “empty cart syndrome.” After you choose your meals using the FizzUp app, you can generate your shopping list of ingredients.
No more guessing or forgetting what you need as you go through all the aisles. Just go down the list. Another tip: do your shopping on a full stomach to avoid impulse buying.
Now that you’ve done your shopping, it’s time to get cooking! Got better things to do? Just think about all the benefits you can enjoy when you put in the effort to cook your own meals! You get some time to yourself, you’ll eat fresh, nutritious ingredients, you’ll learn how to cook or get better at it and you’ll be proud of a meal you made all by yourself.
A lot of 9 to 5ers eat at work, so why not make something the night before or enough over the weekend to last you from Monday to Friday? That way, you’ve got a healthy meal to savor every day that was made with love. Eating should be something you enjoy. Let the FizzUp trainer show you. Once you start, you won’t want to stop.
FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU LIKE THROUGH TRIAL AND ERROR
If you want to start some new habits in your life and get them to stick, you’ve got to go through some trial and error, whether you’re changing your eating habits or anything else. For instance, if you don’t usually eat breakfast, what you can do is try different kinds of breakfasts that sound good to you and stick with the one you like best! But don’t give up when you reach the first hurdle! If you try a breakfast you don’t like, then try other ones. Through trial and error, you can learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward toward success!
When you’re in the kitchen, imagine you’re in a chemistry lab and experiment with different recipes, ingredients and pairings. Just have some (healthy) fun!
Use the recipes, meal planner and shopping list generator included in your favorite fitness app to stick to your diet resolutions! Healthy and flavorful eating is a cinch with the FizzUp trainer. 🙂
