    Do You Plan Your Diet?






    I have been doing this for a while, and I know I will probably get flamed for this, but thats just the way it is. I have only rarely planned my diet.
    Who has time? (Or- who makes time?) Fortunately for me, it doesnt really matter what I eat. I just have to make sure I eat enough.

    I pretty much plan mine out. In fact it's a habit now, and feels unnatural if I don't. It's when I don't plan (like on weekends) that it can all go wrong, or I have to be particularly careful. I use fitday.com to log and plan my daily menu, as well as record exercise, body measurement changes, etc. It really does help.

    Everyday..... I pack my meals the night before and I always keep spare things like protein, cans of tuna, oats, fiber one, fish oil and sesathin in my drawer at work in case of emergency.

    I prepare meals ahead too. And my cubicle looks like a grocery store.

    I voted "most of the time" because I don't exactly always plan my day out meal by meal. However, I always have cooked chicken and cans of tuna and veggies about, and I have a good selection of "old reliables" that I can drop into any slot.

    So I pretty much know how much I should be eating at a given meal, but if I have the option, I like to be able to choose at the time what exactly I will eat.

    I usually think about 2 meals ahead, but I don't plan out each day ahead of time. Of course, I eat the same thing for breakfast and my last meal of the day pretty much every day.

    Me too. I always get looks every morning I take my big cooler with the day's meals into work every morning. Maybe they're just checking me out though since I'm so dang sexy . J/K, but seriously I do get lots of funny looks from people though, but it's worth it.

    I have changed my diet up somewhat. I made Princes protein bars, so now I alternate those every other morning with a protein shake. One morning I have a shake, the next I have a bar. I made a double batch, so they are nice and thick.
    There's a tip for the planning challenged.

    During school, being on a schedule and all I have eaten the same half pound turkey sandwich, carrots/broccoli, tuna/pb sandwhich every day for two straight years.

    It's SOP for me.

    as of right now i am not, just trying to get protein and lots of cals. I've sort of switched over to PL'ing and i'm taking a break from being very strict with diet. You better plan out your meals if you want to see consistent results though.

    A failure to plan is a plan to fail. But then I have days like ths where I haven't really eaten in 2 days because of stress and illness and I have to wing it otherwise I will spend another day eating nothing. NOT GOOD FOR THE MUSCLES AT ALL!
