Best Diet Plans: Weight Management
Are you wondering what the best diet plans for weight management are? Well I think I have an answer for you that you may have not been expecting.
*There are NO best diet plans weight management!*
It’s a trick question because in all honestly no specific ‘diet’ is going to be the ultimate answer for your weight management struggles. The real answer to long-term weight management is to find a program that you can consistently follow until it becomes a fixed habit and leads to adopting a whole new lifestyle.
A lifestyle that involves eating the right nutritious foods day in and day out. Diets only make you change unwillingly which no one likes to do. Even the word diet presupposes that it is only temporary. Temporary healthy eating will not work!
You need to begin adopting some basic yet powerful principles that will help you maintain weight immediately but also help you begin to adopt a completely new and healthy lifestyle!
Principles To Weight Management
These are tried and true principles to weight management that can help you become a more healthy, disciplined eater and overall more confident in your abilities to make the right choices when it comes to food AND living a healthy and centered lifestyle.
1: Portion Control Is Important
Overeating is such a common problem a good amount of people struggle with on a daily basis (Tips To Stop Overeating). Learning to control the size of portions you eat can make huge improvement in overall weight management and increased energy levels. Adopting healthy meal replacement shakes is another great way to combat overeating.
2: Decide On A Meal Plan That Works For You And Commit To It
I’m going to go into more specifically meal prepping for weight management in the next section so I’ll be a bit brief. However this is my point on why meal planning is so important for weight management. It allows you to focus on a simple and healthy nutrition program that focuses on lean proteins, vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Along with meal replacement shakes and recommended nutritious recipes, filling snacks and workout routines, this is the best overall way to adopt a new lifestyle of healthy living.
3: Shift Your Mindset To Confidence And Belief
Successfully maintaining weight isn’t too complicated. Check out our clients results. Most of them told us that in order for them to maintain their weight they had to shift their belief towards why they were going to achieve their goals; not why they couldn’t. It’s the new mindset of giving up all past excuses of genetics and low self-esteem and telling yourself you can and will do this! ( Our coaching can help)
Bonus: Learn to control your environment and the people you spend your time with. Maybe even change the places that you spend most of your time. If you find yourself in bars or restaurants late night, that may not be conducive to your health. Look to surround yourself with people who live a healthy lifestyle and join their healthy challenges, accountability chats and weight loss challenges.

Meal Prepping: Weight Management
To effectively maintain weight it takes eating healthy consistently and adopting a whole new healthy lifestyle. What’s the easiest way to adopt that new healthy lifestyle?
So why is meal prepping important, and how can meal prepping for weight management help?
- Meal prepping requires you to space out your meals which makes it easier each day to get up and know what you’re eating as well as when you’re eating it. Planning of meals itself makes the process of weight management so much easier because there are no fearful thoughts of missing a meal or overeating. Also with meal planning comes tracking calories and nutrients which helps you gauge your results better and forces you to stick to your plan IF you want to reach your ultimate goal.
- Another positive of prepping meals ahead of time is it allows you to write out your grocery list ahead of time also. This will help make sure that everything you need for all of your meals is gotten at the grocery store and ready to start preparing as soon as cooking time begins.
- An essential tip to meal prepping for weight management is to cook more ingredients so that you will have leftovers for some of your other meals. For instance, if you cook a dinner one night with chicken, you can cook more of it than you need for dinner and the next day you can use that same cooked chicken to make a healthy salad for lunch. There are many other combinations similar to that you can use, but this just gives you the power of this main principle of weight management.
- Meal prepping helps a ton in helping you make quick and healthy decisions because when you set up a healthy weekly meal plan you already know every decision you are making throughout the week. This way through a busy and hectic day you won’t go grab for the quick coffee and muffin because each meal is already planned out. Instead you grabbed the healthy and quick version, a DELICIOUS and HEALTHY Formula 1 Healthy Meal Replacement Shake.
This should provide lots of value to anyone looking to manage their weight and is stuck or confused about the process and benefits of meal prepping. It’s simpler than it sounds but does take some disciplined work and a firm commitment to live a healthier lifestyle.
