      A good Meal Policy for healthy weight loss in our life time

      The strategies That Help to Save Money & Eat Healthier

      As families we need to change our strategies about our kitchen affairs. A lot of wrongs are done in the kitchen which impact negatively to our general health. When the kitchen activities are well planned, we will certainly eat the right kinds of foods. The result of feeding on good food items is good health and how best can we sustain the most precious human asset? By nursing it well with the right ingredients. For a couple of months we have been discussing about being obese and overweight. We have stated in many of our writings the consequences of these conditions and we are not about to stop any time soon. Obesity and overweight are becoming increasingly threatening to humanity and we must keep you informed of the prevention modalities. This is what we want to progress on but in a different way today. Our focus in this article is going to be assessing how a good meal policy would benefit our families. Therefore our article title is “a good meal policy for healthy weight loss in our life time”. Take keen interest in the last part of the title “in our life time”. What we are saying is that when you chose to feed well, it should not be done in seasons but always for the rest of your life. The same practice should be passed to the next generation. In other words, our children must be brought on board so that they can carry the good feeding habits into their families when there time comes.

      If you want to be smart in this discipline, then as an individual you must develop your own food or meal policy. Yes we all know that the body needs to be fed on a daily basis, but we must have guidelines on how to approach our meals if effects of weight gain are to be eradicated. I have been consulting immensely with the experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under Doctor Akoury’s care. And I am of the opinion that this is the true home of weight loss professionals based on what I am about to share with us shortly. Doctor Akoury is one of the best and experienced weight loss experts and has impacted positively in the lives of many people globally and therefore if you have any concern relating to weight gain then this is the right professional to reach out to for help. As we progress with the discussion you can schedule for an appointment with her and she will professionally help you get back on truck to the healthy life free from all elements of weight related complications.

      Now to the meal policy for healthy weight loss in our life time, I am going to share with you some of my personal experience and lessons learnt from this facility (AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under Doctor Akoury’s care). A good meal policy would necessitate that you work on a weekly plan. And as for me I usually make food choices just one time during the week.  Sunday is my day of running the errands of the kitchen going to the grocery shopping. This is actually the starting point and also the single most important activity in any given week when it comes to staying on track with a healthy eating plan. Therefore after getting the professional input from the experts (doctor Akoury) I conduct a brief strategy or brain storming session to come up with a working plan which begins with producing a shopping list for my kitchen. To carry you on board, lets discuss the following steps that guides me when making my weekly meal plan:

      The Strategies of a good Weekly Meal Plan

      • Reviewing the contents of the fridge, freezer, and pantry – making a mental note of anything that ought to be used up in the next couple days. Note what leftovers or ingredients we have stashed away that could be the basis of dinners next week.
      • Take a peek at my “recipe inspiration” Pinterest board – and any recipes I’ve ripped out of magazines and stuck to the fridge. Is there any new recipe I want to try this week? Do I have time any day to take a kitchen project on?
      • Flip through my meals calendar – which I keep on Google calendars, to see if there’s anything I made a while back that I’d like to make again.
      • Negotiate with my spouse – about what sounds good we try as best we can to anticipate cravings. Is it too cold to have salad for dinner? Are we sick of chicken? What irrational whims or aversions can we foresee this week?
      • Fill out the calendar – labeling each day with its dinner, stacking more perishable stuff toward the beginning of the week and freezer fodder at the end.
      • Compare recipe ingredients’ list to our inventory – and make a shopping list.
      • Shop – buying only what is on the list. No impulse buys.

      That’s it and I hope it can give you some insight to develop your own. With a well-documented menu plan like this, it becomes easy to take control of all elements of weight gain triggers.

      Why I Make a Meal Plan

      Like many mothers and wives out there, we all have a common denominator of an anxiety that sets in early evening particularly when you don’t have a meal plan and you have no idea of what your family is going to take for dinner. As for me in my marriage, getting dinner together is usually my job and I know the great danger of leaving dinner unplanned. Ordinarily if there is no plan, every time when the dinner time is approaching you are likely to get angry and frustrated. Situations like this can easily introduce stress in your life and even that of your family and you know the consequences of stress. Therefore keep to the plan it will help you when cornered after all you did enough shopping on Sunday and each day is taken care of. When you fail to have this meal policy in your house, chances are that most of your dinners will be done in the restaurants and having taken away junk food. This will betray the spirit of having a good meal policy for healthy weight loss in our life time.

      The Importance of Great Recipes

      Finally when planning for a good meal policy, doctor Akoury says that more emphasis should be put on the ingredients to be used. There are so many unhealthy ingredients that can ruin your meals. Consult with the professional nutritionist on this so that you don’t plan to fail even before you begin.
