Do you have any conferences coming up? It seems like summer is the time for conferences so you can combine some fun with some education. Sounds like a great idea! But if you don’t think about what you are eating, need to eat, and options available to you it can spell disaster for your waistline!

Grocery Shopping and Cooking on a Budget

Image

So in last week’s #TimerDiet101 Blog I talked about grocery prices being on the rise and it was mentioned in a Facebook posting that it is expensive to buy groceries and eat healthy. So I made this the topic for this week’s #TimerDiet101 Blog (so thanks Linda!)

What Kind of Foods are Best? Grocery shopping on a budget

Think cooking “whole” and eating “parts.” If you buy a whole chicken, ham, or a roast then you can have what you want of the whole for dinner, then separate into parts and create different parts to eat throughout the week. Slices for deli meat and chunks for soup. The ham can be broken down into even smaller parts to add to an omelet for breakfast. Slices of your meat can be added to a salad the next day and eaten cold!

Go For the Sales and Freeze!

Rising Grocery Prices Creates Need

Rising Grocery PricesGive to Food Drives

When grocery prices rise not only does it affect our own wallet, it affects those of our neighbors, friends, family, and those who were already struggling either due to illness, unemployment, or just hard-times. When we are asked to give to the local food bank, do we? Do we look into our cupboards and see what more than likely we will never eat or what has been there for a while and may be expiring next month?

Buy Wisely

Grocery prices are rising extremely fast and there appear to be few sales in sight. So when you go to the store be sure you have a purpose for everything that you purchase. When you buy foods that go together and have an intended purpose you will have less waste at the end of the week. When you buy fruit do you know when or how you will eat them? Will you want to add cottage cheese or cheddar? When you buy the meat that is on sale are you making sure that you can eat it before it spoils and freeze what you can’t? There are so many ways we can buy wisely…

Make Your Menus

Know what days you will be at home and which days you will not. Buying food for an entire week and then only eating at home for ½ of it will waste money, unless you can freeze everything you didn’t eat and then remember to use it later. Be sure to know how many lunches you need to prepare and how many snacks. Your menus can be very basic: meat, two vegetables, salad and bread and butter. The details can be ironed out at the store when you see the sales.

Give What You Can

If you have canned or boxed foods that you have not eaten recently or thought you might want at the time and now wonder why, consider giving them to those in need. Saturday May 10th is the United States Postal Service food drive for non-perishable foods. So go through your cupboards see what you can give and buy wisely from now on.

Eating Late at Night

Is Eating Late at Night a DO or a DON’T?Get a good night's Sleep

It is neither! If you are hungry and it is late at night then eat, if you aren’t then don’t. It is as simple as that. If your plans call for a late night dinner with friends or a date night out, then eat late. If instead everyone wants to eat early then do that. There is NO secret time to eat. The real secret time, is when you need to eat. Not just want to.

Don’t dietician say to not eat after 6pm, 7pm, or 4 hours before you go to sleep?

There are a lot of people who will tell you not to eat past a certain time, or not to eat too close to your bed time. But, what if your stomach is growling and/or your head is dizzy, then what? Do you just lie in bed hoping that these feelings will go away and you will become tired enough to ignore them? You will probably fall asleep faster if you eat something small that is well-balanced i.e. includes dietary fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Getting to sleep is important not just for weight loss, but so many other health factors. I see no good reason to lie in bed waiting and hoping that the feeling of hunger will dissipate.

When you are hungry your metabolism is slowing down

It doesn’t take a science degree to know that if you are hungry your body knows it needs to conserve energy and it does this by slowing down your metabolism. Your digestion of food increases your metabolism. You can research this and let me know if you have questions.

Don’t go overboard!!

This is not a go for it to the cookies and cakes. Nor is it a reason to overeat right before you go to bed even if you are eating the most well-balanced of meals. Something small and only enough to take the edge off of your hunger. If you have read my book TimerDiet or gone to my website and looked over my rules, you know I recommend cheddar cheese and crackers if you need something to eat late in the evening. This particular combination includes dietary fat, protein, and carbohydrates. If you have something else that you prefer, try it out and see if you notice any difference in your weight goals and if it helps you get right to sleep. But, most of all don’t feel you need to go to bed hungry because you want to lose weight.
