There are three main reasons why most people don't stick to their diets. For one, they get too hungry and look to "comfort food" to fill the void. Secondly, they don't like the taste of diet food, and out of sheer boredom they look for their usual, "exciting" (aka fattening) cuisine. And finally, many people simply can't afford healthy options, and so it's back to the drive-thru dollar menu. So how can we overcome these obstacles? This article will attempt to provide an answer.
Making Diet Food Taste Good
1. Go natural. The closer you can get your diet to 100% natural, the better off you will be and the better the food will taste. This means instead of buying a frozen or prepackaged meal, do some actual produce shopping. Buy fresh, lean meats. And don't be afraid to prepare meals yourself. There are many diet plans out there that rely almost solely on you "eating like a caveman." When you eat like this, it won't even feel like you're eating diet food!
2. Vary your flavors and textures. One reason that people typically hate diet food is that not all flavors and textures are being represented in their meals. People like things to be chewy, salty, juicy, sweet, starchy, meaty, crunchy, spicy, flaky, and a vast array of other things.
3. Buy in bulk and clip coupons! The greatest way to save money on your grocery bill is to go into the store with a plan, a budget, and a pocket full of coupons! Seriously, I can't stress enough how much you can actually save yourself when you buy big family packs of meat, take advantage of "buy one get one free" offers, and use coupons.
