Lesson 6 – Meal Replacement Exercise and Recap

First off, my apologies for the two-day break in posts!  I was under the weather a bit.  Thank goodness for my essential oils!

Today we will be closing up Lesson 6: From North America to Nutritious with a meal replacement exercise/challenge and a recap of this week’s topics.

My challenge for you is to take a long hard look at your eating habits and begin to strategize ways that you can replace your typical meals with more nutritious ones.  An easy way to do this is to start a food journal, or a dietary record.  This doesn’t have to be a fancy thing – just grab a notebook from the Dollar Store and start keeping track of everything you eat. I suggest doing this for at least 3 days when you will be sticking with your normal routine.  Track everything, including drinks and exercise.

After you have completed at least the three days’ worth of journaling, you can use the Meal Replacement Exercise guide to help you make your changes.

To review this week’s lesson, here is what we learned:

  • Our North American typical meal patterning unfortunately contains a lot of flaws. We tend to skip breakfast, eat on the go and not get the most out of our food.
  • It isn’t hard to break these bad habits and begin to improve our patterns

Don’t be too hard on yourself, but always remember – you can do better!!!
