I read somewhere a long time ago that the best way to lose weight is to stick to a routine (i.e eat the same things every day).

I’ve heard this same piece of advice over and over again over the years from different successful dieters.

My guess is that keeping a routine creates discipline and consistency.

I have not been applying this piece of advice, but after failing at weight lost for the past 4 months, I have decided that it’s worth a shot.


My sister recently emailed me some blog posts from The 4 Hour Workweek blog, and I have decided to implement these strategies.

I will link to the articles below for your reference.

Here is my plan that has come out of reading these articles:

First of all the rules:

  1. No fruit
  2. No white “starchy” carbs
  3. Drink only water
  4. Eat the same meals every day
  5. Have one “cheat day” where you can eat anything you want.

So, for me my plan is to eat:

B- Eggs, beans and veggies

L- Turkey, beans and veggies

S- nuts and veggies

D- Fish, beans and veggies

 Have you found that variety or monotony was more effective in your weight loss journey? Please share in the comment section below!
