Engage in meal preparation.
Alright, so we are almost immediately going back on our promise to keep this a low effort list to help you eat healthy. However, we feel like giving one day of effort out of the entire week might end up being worth it. One of the primary reasons that we end up binge eating or reaching for unhealthy foods is a lack of time, or laziness, after a long day of work. We don’t want to sit down and cook a healthy meal when we can just hit the drive through or throw a frozen dinner in the oven. To combat this feeling of understandable laziness you should pick a day out of the week and prepare your meals for the coming days. Cook meals that are healthy, and tasty, in mass quantities and then package them up. You can leave a few of the packaged meals in the fridge while freezing the rest. The night before you need the meals just take them out of the freezer and put them into the fridge. This way you’ll never have an excuse to reach for unhealthy food due to convenience.
