Proper Planning and Preparation Prevents P**s Poor Performance (The 7P's)Apr 26, 2022
Last week saw us launch our Sustain Basics guide, with the aim of educating people on what is needed to help you lose weight and keep it off for good.
Our goal is to help as many people live healthy, happy lives as possible. Often this involves changing nutritional habits, losing weight and emotional management.
All 3 of these things are MASSIVELY impacted by having a plan in advance. Even if the plan isn't followed, the very act of thinking ahead of time and looking for solutions is a step forwards that helps people to upskill and improve their fat loss efforts.By creating a plan, you can learn, build on successes AND learn from failures. Without this you are banking on hope, which in my experience, as a coach and my own efforts, is a sure fire way to get nowhere.
You are not a football to be kicked around by life. You have the ability to control your own fate and destiny. But not if you can't be arsed to think ahead of time about what you are going to eat!
Effort is directly proportional to success. Even if it is harder for you to lose weight there are A LOT of things you can do that I see A LOT of people not doing.
Food planning is the big one. So we are creating a guide to help you implement this. For free. Simply comment on James's post here and we'll send it to you.
If you wake up with no idea what you're having for breakfast. If you get home with no idea what you'll have for dinner. If you are tired, stressed or upset and you have no nutritious food to hand but you do have high calorie food to hand, what's going to happen?
Yes you can pay for a meal plan, or download one from the internet but if you don't learn this skill, how are you going to do it long term? As with anything, the more you do it, the easier it gets. Going through the struggle, the mental exertion, making meals that end up tasting crap are all necessary parts of the journey that will leave you upskilled.
The issue lies in the absence of the plan.
It doesn't have to be perfect to start. Simply choose the times that you struggle the most (most likely weekends) and put together a plan of 3 meals and 2 snacks and you will be streets ahead of most people's fat loss efforts.
