How to Make a Diet Plan Even if You have Demanding Schedule

February 10, 2010

I have many clients in the situation that have a variable work, from people who work the night shift to those who travel constantly or who go from meeting to meeting all day long, regardless of your work schedule you will be able to make a diet work and lose the weight:

1. Keep your diet plan simple. I always told my clients the divided plate rule which means that you fill your plate half full with vegetables, one quarter full with protein and the last quarter with carbohydrate. This ensures you are eating the right foods in the right portions without the bother of counting calories or having to search for specialty foods.

2. Keep snacks in the form of protein. Don't grab the packaged snack from the vending machine. These snacks are filled with refined carbohydrates which leave you with a surge of insulin that leads to a crash of your blood sugar and a flood of cravings. Instead have a protein snack (i.e. cheese, nuts) this will steady your blood sugar controlling your hunger for well into the next few hours.

3. You will want your attitude to match your schedule so learn to handle frustration when you cannot get exactly what you wanted to eat and be flexible enough to accept "plan B". With a positive attitude you will find an acceptable alternative and stick with your weight loss program.

However, there will be obstacles in your path but when you have a mentor to guide you or a group of people to support you and encourage you finding a way to make a diet work becomes much easier.
