Be a Smart Ass, not a Dumb Ass!

Righteo, the mega fun eating time has come to an end now that Christmas and the New Year is over. Not entirely of course, it’s still great to enjoy food a little, but balance must be restored… well, if you’re after a bit of fat loss it’s rather important now isn’t it!
Now, whilst many are running head first into chaotic, cataclysmic schemes involving expensive supplements, drinks, potions and ridiculous exercise plans, let us keep our heads whilst they lose theirs.
Be a Smart Ass, not a Dumb Ass!
Let’s put together a plan to actually get results. Now, I’m not going to propose any particular exercise plan as that’s far too personal for this post, but I am promoting the one habit rule.
Brains much smarter than mine have shown over and over again that focussing on working on one habit at a time is far more successful than the old cluster bomb attack.
So, let’s get into habit #1 for this week.

“Sounds like a lot of work”, you’re perhaps thinking but all I’m suggesting is that for this week you make basic list of meals for every day. You probably already eat the same(ish) breakfast and probably only have some variety for lunches so just leaves evening meals.

So, what kind of meals should you list?

Don’t go all silly on us and try to be over complicated and uber-healthy, that’ll happen in time but try to come up with meals that:

  • Firstly, you enjoy eating.
  • That include a natural protein source like beef, chicken, fish, pork, legumes or eggs for example.
  • That include vegetables that you enjoy or at least tolerate!
  • Include flavouring from herbs or spices or a dressing.


After this, the recipes are whatever you like. Don’t expect yourself to be Heston Blumenthal, just list meals you enjoy with the criteria I listed above. You can repeat meals too.

This isn’t the end of the process, but by first acknowledging food, the following steps will be simpler and easier.

Next week, habit #2 of course … stay tuned for 6 weeks of habit building awesomeness.
