Why do you think you are not losing weight?
A lot of the time, people will say that the reason they aren’t losing weight for their diet is not working is because they simply don’t have the time.
A lot less care and attention is needed when you don’t think about what you are putting into your body. However, in the end, it does catch up with us and sooner or later we do need to stop, take a step back and pay a little more attention to self-care.
Now, whilst Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, lunch is no different as this is what is going to fuel you on and push you for the remainder of your day so it needs to be packed full of goodness.
Being very aware of how busy everyone is, it’s always great to have lunches you can prepare in advance the night before or even ones you can prepare all at once, at the beginning of the week to see you through. Or alternatively those that don’t take long to put together at all.
