Sometimes a person will feel anxious when everything around them seems to be moving too fast. This could be your dilemma if you dove right into your meal plan without being prepared. Let us be the first to tell you that it is okay to ease into your meal plan. You are making a lifestyle choice, and we don’t expect you to change overnight. The best success comes overtime.
So first, breathe! For your first week, just glance over the foods you will be eating, and then try grocery shopping for those foods. That is the first step, and then take it another step by trying 1 or 2 of the meals on your plan. It’s not a race or a marathon, but a lifestyle. When you feel on edge, take a moment to tell yourself that is this food plan is your choice and it’s going to take time to get used to this change. Remind yourself the reasons of why committing to this lifestyle was important to you. Take a moment to find a quiet place and settle down for a few minutes so that you can find your mental balance again.
