So you’re starting your new journey tomorrow? Awesome! Don’t hesitate to give me a shout if you have questions. One thing that can be a challenge is to hit your caloric goals each day.
Don’t worry if you are over or under some days… many days. As a matter of fact, you can even plan your entire week around NOT hitting your (daily) goals.
Plan A above is the most ideal path, if possible. But let’s be real, there are many reasons it might veer off that course. Path B gets you to the same weekly caloric goal, but gives you some weekend flexibility for those days you might “need” a few extra calories. Plan C is good if you have a birthday party or happy hour or whatever during the week where you need a little leeway a couple days. Plan D is an example of needing extra calories for strength training and/or cardio days.
Plan E is what you want to avoid if at all possible. All the calories you saved during the week could be wiped out by a couple of days of loose eating.
Don’t let perfection (A) get in the way of progress. Think of ways you can adjust your new way of eating to fit your life.
