How to stay on track foods, what I eat

I know life is crazy sometimes or all the time if you are me!!! Your day gets away from you and you find yourself making bad food choices, eating out of starvation and convince. The other thing that happens is you find yourself staring face to face with one of your biggest temptation foods!!! Here is what I did, it kept me on track and made what I was going to eat perfectly clear. I went and got myself a nice size lunch box. I tried a few before I found the one I like. It should be one you can take with you every where you go (the one pictured is the one I use the most but I also used a small square cooler depending on what I was packing). Every night before I went to bed I packed my cooler. I packed it with ALL my food for the next day. I prepared and packed my breakfast, lunch, dinner and three snacks. This way I went into to each day totally prepared. I never had to make a food quick food choice. The only rule I had was:: DO NOT eat anything unless it comes from the box!! I never fell into temptation or was caught off guard. I NEVER once went over my calorie budget doing it this way. I budgeted 1,200 calories a day. Breakfast lunch and dinner ranged from 200-300 calories and snacks were 100-200 calories.


My typical day::

6 AM Breakfast 300 calories

9 AM snack 150 calories

12 PM Lunch 300 calories

3 PM snack 150 calories

5 PM Dinner 200 calories

7 PM snack 100 calories
