The journey toward better health is among the most vital paths we will walk in our lifetimes. Although everyone's target destination, be it a target weight or a goal for how much one can lift, is a little different, the steps are often the same. Those in search of a healthy lifestyle must exercise and, most importantly, feed the body with good nutrition.
It sounds deceptively easy to say that the secret for both weight management and a stronger body is to eat better food. With all the temptations at local grocery stores and the hectic rush modern life imposes upon us, planning meals for the day or the week may be one chore too many. Yet meal planning has been shown to facilitate fitness success.
The Benefits of Meal Planning
Meal planning seems like a small step in the journey to good health. Many people are surprised, however, by how effective the simple act of meal planning and tracking can be. Planned meals play a tremendous role in the perennial search for a healthier lifestyle. That’s why Jax Nutrition now offers a free version of our meal plan program.
Meal plans in general, whether a specific meal plan program or a less formal meal outline, offer a tool for both accountability and the banishing of temptation to eat unhealthy foods. How do they do this?
Meal plans provide the chance for people to thoughtfully design meals around caloric or nutritional targets, around food sensitivities or diet restrictions, and around balanced portions. A study out of Australia reported that in their research, they found that groups who tracked their nutrition found greater success (the goal was weight loss) than the group that didn’t. A meal plan program can lead a person to shop for and consume food more mindfully.
Meal planning can also keep the user accountable; “The power in this is that it really increases your awareness more and makes you think literally twice about a food before you eat it,” dietitian Melissa Dobbins, RD, states.
