It’s now been over a year since my tummy tuck. After losing 118 pounds I was left with loose skin, I had a tummy tuck and a thigh lift, and now 1 year later….left with nothing but a faded scar. I will take it! Lol it kinda makes me feel like a little warrior chic. And my abs, those are nice too!! Been busting my butt for a year to get some abs! Work hard ❤️ #funeralformyfat #tummytuck

I was recently asked this question, so here are my tips:
First and foremost I think the most important thing is to learn to grocery shop. This may seem silly, but it’s very important. I have a lot of grocery lists tagged here. I generally shop the outside rim of the store (produce, dairy, frozen, meats) and stay away from the processed dry and sugary foods.
Learning to properly shop for yourself sets the stage for meal prep (the second most important thing!). Meal prep is really important for a busy schedule: if I don’t have meals prepared, I’ll end up buying bad food. 
Finding recipes and discovering new foods is also an absolute must! There’s some great recipes here.
Examples of meal prep:


You can cook steel cut oats on Sunday and eat it safely for breakfast for the next 1.5 weeks. Read this about breakfast!
You can prep sandwiches or salads or pastas the night before to bring to class.
You can cut up apples (squeeze w a little lemon juice so they don’t turn brown) the night before for snacks, too.
Prepare small bags of almonds and dark chocolate chips ready to throw in your purse.
It totally depends what you like to eat, but for me, my very quick go-to meal is a bowl of pasta. When I cook pasta, it ends up being 40% pasta, 50% veggies and 10% sauce. Cook the pasta, add in frozen veggies (usually petite peas, or spinach, or zucchini), add some sauce (sometimes tomato-based or just EVOO). Then season with kosher salt and pepper. This reheats really well if you invest in some good tupperware (I like this).


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
