Ask Stacey: are boring meals better for your weight?

August 29, 2013 2 min read

The topic of this post was spawned from the email exchange below: Hi Stacey, Thank you for the coaching and support. I am really excited to see that our efforts are paying off and those ten pounds really make a difference in my clothes. I can't wait to see what I will look like when those last ten come off! The last meal plan you gave me is great and easy to follow but I feel like I'm basically eating the same thing over and over again. Is it okay for me to try some new foods?  Thanks, Emily S. Great question, Emily! Are you saying you're getting bored with your selections? :) First, I am happy to see that the training program is working. Clearly  you are working just as hard outside of our meeting times which is really important for achieving the results you want. To answer your question, variety is the spice of life and can be incorporated into your meal plan in, well, a varietyof ways For example, you can try new ways of preparing foods along with new spices in that preparation. Sauteing, steaming, broiling and braising are forms of cooking that add and preserve moisture while baking, roasting and grilling are good dry cooking methods. All require little to no added fat and dry methods can actually reduce fat in the cooking process. It is a good idea to have a few healthy favorites in mind for each meal of the day. These foods should be similar to each other in terms of calorie count and nutrient quality.  Once you have that basic foundation, you can be adventurous  and add new foods as garnishes to your basic meal. The adage "eat the rainbow" is ideal but portion size is key. Eating a wide variety of natural foods allows you to benefit from ALL the vitamins and nutrients nature has to offer you but eating too much of anything is never a good idea.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.
