Dieting After Weight Loss Surgery: Weekly Meal PlanningPosted: Sep 28 in Post-Bariatric Diet by Staff
Instead of worrying about what you plan on eating every day, focus on planning the entire week ahead of time. While it seems like a lot of work, it’s a great time-saving way to get started on a healthy diet after weight loss surgery. Here are some advantages of weekly meal planning:
Group Friendly: If you have a partner, spouse or children, chances are you’ll be eating meals together. Weekly meal planning helps you develop meals for everyone eating instead of only for you. This can foster a sense of camaraderie as you establish healthier eating habits.
Saves Time and Money: The time you spend up front saves you time in the long run. Once the meals are planned and your food has been purchased, your time is only spent cooking and prepping. Once indecision and stress are taken out of the picture, the mealtime routine becomes smooth and carefree.
Promotes Weight Loss: After meals are planned, you’ll be less tempted to cheat and eat fattening foods on the fly. A weekly meal plan can serve as inspiration to stick to a routine. Instead of ending a busy day with a fast food meal or eating out, you’ll know exactly what you’re eating. Sticking to a predetermined plan promotes weight loss by regulating caloric intake.
