Poor health is not ‘convenient’.
Concerns of managing excessive weight are not ‘convenient’.
An athlete failing to reach their goals is not ‘convenient’.
If none of these scenarios are ‘convenient’ then why has ‘convenient foods’ been embraced by modern society?
Not because of ‘common sense’ or ‘better nutritional quality’ but simply because of remarkably complex and effective marketing.
We as a society have collectively been convinced of unhealthy habits and allowed them to be entrenched into generations, whether it is the acceptance of processed foods or the entire process of enjoying a meal at the family dinner table WITHOUT the television on, the 'conveniences' of the modern world have led us astray.
Optimal health is quite ‘convenient’ and within reach and simply takes a step back in time.
For those who have a busy lifestyle, ‘convenience’ is not an excuse as success lay ahead for those who plan accordingly. As in training, preparation is the foundation of success and hence a well planned diet leads to goal achievement.
Plan your meals of fresh fruits and vegetables, package in glass bottles and take with you to work, your studies or training.
Prepare properly and be prepared to succeed.
The best approach is the simplest. Each evening, prepare your meals in advance and store in (glass, not plastic) container for work or school. You have the option of choosing what you personally enjoy and given it from the basket of ‘real food’ it is naturally healthy.
Plan ahead and prepare for success. Success is a habit.
