Yes - SO much of it is in the planning. Eating healthy won't happen on it's own. It's got to be thought out in advance. Lots of prep work involved. THIS IS VITAL TO SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS. Much easier to stay on plan when you've got one. Much easier to avoid the *bad* foods if you've got lots of good ones ALWAYS on hand. Much easier to *do this* knowing beforehand where every bite, lick, taste, crumb, morsel and sip is coming from. Much easier to stay on track when it comes meal time and the decision as to what to eat has already been made.
I look forward to hearing of your progress.
