How it helps?
Helps Prevent Under or Over Training
This is one of the most important reasons for having a workout plan. If you are just trying to piece together different workouts or wandering around the gym, you could be training the same body part too close together or not enough. You may also be working out too long and/or doing too much cardio for your goals, etc. There are so many factors that can go into under or overtraining.
There’s nothing worse than feeling like you are wasting time. Having a workout plan provides you with structure so that you aren’t wondering what to do. Workout plans tell you which exercise to do, how many reps, how many sets, etc.
A workout provides you with an automatic goal – to complete the workout plan! You can even break it down further and look at it as a daily or weekly goal to complete all of the workouts.
A well-structured workout plan will help prevent burnout because it should be changing every few weeks and keeps it interesting.
Plan your meals
Whether you’re trying to lose weight or build lean muscles, planning your meals will ensure you’re eating well and can make a positive difference in achieving your goals for the day.
How it helps?
Make healthier choices
Planning your meals well ahead of time helps you take control of your personal nutritional needs.
Prevents bloating & acidity
Untimely meals especially due to faulty planning cause acidity, bloating and other digestion related problems.
Helps you eat in moderation
Planning your own meals will allow you to see how much you’re actually eating.
Being hungry and realizing you have nothing planned is undoubtedly stressful. Instead of standing in front of your fridge or pantry deciding what to whip up, you can have your healthy meal ready in minutes. This also saves you the hassle of cleaning up after cooking.
Avoid food wasting
When it comes to meal planning, you go to the grocery store with a plan, and know how you’re going to use all of the items. When every food has a purpose, you won’t have to worry about items in your fridge going to waste.
Whether you’re cooking for your entire family or just yourself, taking the time to plan your meals for the week ahead is definitely worth the effort. The key is just to set aside a little bit of time each week to do it.
