Copyright (c) 2012 Raymond Hinish

If you’re serious about losing weight for life, you’re going to need to start a collection of weight loss-friendly recipes; a collection of recipes that you enjoy, but is also healthy.

Why is this such a useful tool? Lack of diet-excitement is a common cause of a dieter quitting their healthy lifestyle. In fact, it is sited as one of the top five reasons why people give up on their lifestyle!

For me, I’m totally comfortable eating the same food day after day, but many people need variety in their diet, for these folks, it’s important, even a necessity, to have a gaggle of recipes that are simple and easy to prepare!

By following my advice and keeping a collection of weight loss-friendly recipes, you will never feel bored by your healthy lifestyle. that will give you an advantage. Let’s not forget that weight loss is one of the hardest things in the world to achieve, and even harder to maintain. So, anything that will stack the cards in our favor is a winner!

The Three Main Collection Methods

The first is the classic “recipe box with index cards”. Many of my clients refer to this technique as the “Grandma Technique” due to the fact that every senior citizen seems to use this method. Quite simply, it’s nothing more than a plastic shoebox filled with flashcards with handwritten recipes. This “throw back” method is actually kinda fun, and in a digital world, could be a breath of fresh air.

Second is equally simple, but a bit more organized. Make a recipe scrapbook. Over time, the scrapbook will become your own cookbook for diet-friendly recipes. Print your best recipes onto fade-resistant paper and add them to your new scrapbook. The scrapbook method can also keep photos of the finished dishes! Set up tabs to organize the main dishes, desserts, side dishes, salads, soups, etc..

Finally, you can make an electronic recipe book There are tons of programs and apps that you can use to build a library of healthy recipes. Many programs come with thousands of diet-friendly recipes that can be organized into folders for easy access! This is a favorite of my tech-savy clients. Buy one of the many weight loss recipe applications available for your smartphone, Droid, iPhone, Blackberry, or iPad.!!!) that allows you to search or save tons of fat loss friendly recipes

The key is to keep your recipes VERY organized! Just building a collection of weight loss recipes, in and of itself, isn’t sufficient – you MUST use it!

Each day, try to make a different recipe. You won’t love all of them. Some recipes will be winners, some may taste great but will be too time consuming to make, there are just so many good recipe choices out there to settle for a recipe that lacks in either flavor or convenience! The primary goal is to keep your healthy lifestyle fun and exciting! So, if you’re getting bored with your lifestyle, don’t give up, change something to keep it exciting!
