If someone else prepares your food then you can provide them with the individual recipe which comes with a list of ingredients and cooking instructions which are easy to follow.
If you have no control over the food that someone else prepares for you, then we recommend two things:
- Start a food diary so you can start to count or track what you eat and drink every day and get more familiar with your calorie intake. (You might to like to use something like MyFitnessPal to help you with this). This will allow you to have a better handle on staying within your daily calorie allowance. If you don’t measure it, it is hard to manage it!
- Read our ‘Beginners Guide to Clean Eating’ guide so you can educate yourself on healthy nutrition decisions and on clean eating food swaps. This knowledge can provide the foundation for making the best food decisions within your particular situation.
