Many weight loss programs and systems over-complicate the process, requiring you to use confusing tracking methods and complicated cooking techniques. It can be exhausting to spend a lot of time tracking information or slaving away in the kitchen preparing the right types of food that you need. In fact, it is common for people to “burn out” on their weight loss efforts if they are having a hard time keeping up with the requirements for tracking or meal preparation.
Long Term Success: Keep it Simple
If you want to achieve long-term success with your new habits, then you need to make sure to keep things simple. These basic steps can make it possible for you to achieve the results that you desire, and it’s much easier to maintain the lifestyle when you aren’t over-complicating things.
I’ve found a lot of great tips from Tim Ferriss and his simple cooking strategies. He’s provided many tips about cooking healthy, delicious food by using basic ingredients and easy kitchen tools. For more information about his tools and cooking gear, check out his blog post that lists all of the kitchen gear that he uses to prepare simple meals. He provides a clear and easy list with the exact tools that are used to prepare his meals.
Find What Works for You
The best thing that you can do is find the kitchen tools and systems that work for you and your family. Once you dial in a few recipes, you can rotate through those recipes and add in a few new meals here and there when you would like to experiment and try something new.
It is common for people who have successfully lost weight to have 10 or 15 recipes that they rotate through. Even though it might sound boring to eat the same types of food over and over again, it saves quite a bit of time and money when you are sticking to the simple systems that work for you.
