» Everywhere you look you see plans to get you “skinny just in time for the beach,” or programs that promise you a “beach body by summer.” These are usually crash diets and extreme exercise programs that are not conducive to a healthy lifestyle, and often incredibly unsafe after a month or two.
» It’s not all bad news though–if you commit to a healthy lifestyle consisting of a balanced diet, and reasonable workout regimens, you can obtain something even better than a beach body for summer, you can get a fit body for life.
» Having your ideal body is about adapting to a new, healthier way of doing things every day; a way that’s manageable and sustainable for the duration of your life, not just a few weeks or months.
» Your diet is worth 80% of your overall fitness, so no matter how much you work out in the gym, or on the field, you won’t see much progress in your health and fitness levels unless you learn to eat healthily. Making sure that your diet is balanced and full of nutrients is the most important aspect to maintaining your dream body for life. The easiest way to maintain a healthy and balanced diet is to practice meal prepping. Plan and cook healthy meals, then pack them in individual portions to take with you to enjoy during the days that you won’t be able to prepare a nutritious meal at home. You’ll be more likely to stick to a nutritious diet if it’s convenient.
Remember that practice makes perfect, so the more you pack your meals, the easier and more habitual it will become.
» You will need something reliable and durable, like our ISOBAG, so that you can be sure that your meals stay fresh throughout the day. A small purchase like this will motivate you to keep at it when you first get started. You also don’t want to get too adventurous right off the bat. Begin by prepping meals you know you enjoy and are simple to make. This will ensure that you don't get off track while your habits are changing.
