I have found the easiest and most effective way to stick to a ‘Foody Lifestyle Choice [FLC]’ that benefits my training goals is to prepare my food/meals in advance. For me, it takes the guess work out of what to have for dinner and I have also found it is easier to resist cravings. My general rule with cravings is to eat what’s on the original food prep menu and if I still feel like the ‘craving’ after my pre-planned meal, I can have it. 9 times out of 10 the cravings subside after my FLC meal. And, this is not just for fast food, chocolate or icecream, I have also found this works with wine too! Yep. If I get that 6pm glass of wine craving I stick with the original food plan and, again, if I still feel like it after my body positive meal, I will pour it and drink it. 9 times out 10 I will not end up needing that glass of wine 🙂

Here is a little repost from the guys over at David Barker Performance Training Centre that backs the FLC theory and shows you how easy it actually is to eat in a way that benefits and assists your fitness training goals.

Have you done your food prep today for the week ahead??

I take 2 hours out of every Sunday to prepare my meals for the week. I complete my food shopping after work Friday so I’m prepared and ready to go. This week I spend under $80 and have everything I need to get me through 5 whole days and breakfast lunch Saturday.

This week I prepared 3 meals:

1) zucchini & bacon muffins

2) Clean Chicken & Pesto wholemeal pasta

3) Beef & Bacon Mince in garlic/tomato sauce with brown rice.

I will usually have for breakfast:

1 slice of toast, 2 rashers of bacon, 1/2 an avocado and 1 scrambled egg


Maybe overnight oats, apples, yoghurt


will usually be based around what macros I have left in my plan to consume and I like to cook this on the night so I can mix it up.

Meal prep doesn’t have to be expensive a task nor does it mean boring meals.

Get creative. Obviously this wouldn’t work for everyone, you all have your own nutritional requirements.
