Diet help

I can’t stay motivated when it comes to eating healthy. My biggest weakness is not eating enough thru out the day. I get lazy and don’t feel like making the meals. Dinner is never the issue eating either. Is it ok to have meal replacements for everything but dinner?

    Or you can just eat the majority of your calories at dinner. There are many here who only eat one meal a day (OMAD). If you opt for meal replacements, just log them like anything else. For weight loss, all that really counts is that you are in a calorie deficit, however you get to that. It may make it difficult once you get down to your goal weight and try to enter maintenance, though. Better to find a more sustainable way to eat that will carry over into maintenance.

    Meal prep! Find enough motivation to spend half a day cooking, freeze them up into batches and then there is suddenly a ton of meals ready to go that require no more effort than a frozen convenience meal.

    I cook roughly once a month for the majority of meals. I do still make an occasional fresh meal (eg. steak, salad) but the majority are from my freezer stash.

    +1 on meal prep.

    I made all my meals for the week in 3 hours tonight. Saves the temptation to way convenience foods (I always think just once will be alright, but it never is).

    When I stop meal prepping, I start gaining.

    Its funny how a person can tell me what I loss and didn't loss lmao. Wow.

    Unless you had a 42,000 calorie deficit over those two weeks, the vast majority of it was water weight

    I don't think meal replacements will do anything except aggravate the problem. Instead, I suggest you make meals you want to eat.
