SMART Eating System
Specific – be specific and consistent about what you eat. This will build a foundation and metrics to help you make decisions on what and how much of something you eat.
Measurable – It is important to have a base line to measure against. This is why we take the calorie approach in the beginning. This is important for both people that are trying to lose weight or gain weight.
Action – Pre-planning your food and adhering to the schedule and noting deviations. This will help you assess your week and make changes that will put you in the direction of weight loss or weight gain depending on whatever your goal might be.
Realistic – You will not be perfect but you must identify food that sets you off from reaching your goal. Pick foods that you like and eat them in the correct portions for your needs. These foods should be foods that you know you can handle eating for a lifetime.
Tough – Temptations are everywhere when it comes to high calorie/unhealthy foods. You must fight the good fight and defend yourself from eating bad foods. Know yourself and stay away from settings that put you in situations where you know you will make bad food choices.
How It Works
Almost anyone that has studied health and fitness either as an amateur weight-loss seeker or as professional will tell you that good nutrition is a large part of good health and ideal body weight for any individual. If we all know that food is important to health and ideal body weight, why are so many of us overweight and unhealthy? The answer is simple: we don’t plan our daily eating well enough. Generally, we leave it up to chance and spontaneity.
