At the time, I thought that was crazy. "What if you crave pizza on a night that you're supposed to have tacos?" I asked him. Unfortunately, I don't remember his response. All I know is that idea stayed around in the "this could maybe be a good idea one day" compartment in my mind.

It wasn't until recently that I started putting this technique into practice, and for completely different reasons. Now, I don't plan that far ahead. Not even close. But I always plan at least one meal ahead.
I didn't start out doing this, but feel I came into it gradually. It wasn't even until recently that I noticed this IS what I am doing, but in evaluating my practice with it, I have realized that I don't crave things like I used to. Not only have my eating habits changed, which have made my taste buds change, but I don't really give myself time TO crave anything.
I always plan my breakfast, and usually my lunch, the night before so that I can prep anything that night that needs to be prepped, saving me time in the morning. Especially since overnight oats have made their way into my
Dinner isn't always as premeditated, but Mr. Light and I usually discuss it the night before or at lunch that day.
When I plan it, I make sure I enter whatever I can into my MyFitnessDiary app, so that it's ready to go, and kind of official.
Do you pre-plan your meals? What's your technique, and how far ahead do you plan? If not, I challenge you to give it a try, and tell me how it works for you!
