3. Make your meals repetitive
The easiest way to make it work is to be consistent. “You eat the same things every day,” Aulet says.”You’re not eating for flavor or taste—you’re only doing so to achieve your goal.”
A typical day (which becomes a typical week) for Aulet:
Breakfast (upon waking): A small bowl of oatmeal with half a banana and up to one tbsp of honey, plus one hard-boiled egg. Unsweetened green tea to drink.
Three hours later: A western omelette (no cheese) made with one whole egg and three whites. Water to drink.
Lunch (three hours later): Salmon, veggies such as broccoli and asparagus, and a side salad made with baby spinach topped with balsamic vinaigrette or lemon juice. Half a grapefruit. Water or unsweetened green tea.
Three hours later: A whey protein shake made with water (check the sugar content of the protein powder; it should not be more than 5 grams), plus a small handful of mixed nuts (1.5 ounces).
Dinner: Fish, turkey, or chicken with mixed veggies or stirfried with small amount of oil and a dash of soy. A side salad of greens. Water.
Before bed: A small cup of warm milk with a teaspoon of honey to sate the hunger before sleeping.Back to top
