I’m pressed for time, have an irregular diet, and don’t have the energy to plan a diet plan. Is there any easy and efficient diet plan?
1. Make some habits.
Ensuring nutrition is not complicated; adopting a few habits depending on your situation is critical.
2. Bring some food with you.
Make sure you always have snacks in your office and carry-on bag, such as small packs of nuts, milk, yogurt, lattes (fresh milk + espresso), washed cucumbers and tomatoes, and citrus fruits are convenient and don’t need to be cleaned. Pretty much all of these are available at convenience stores. It will ensure that you don’t damage your gut by starving yourself constantly because of the difficulty of getting regular meals, and it will also prevent you from consuming too much at the next meal.
3. Ensure balanced nutrition.
Try to follow the rule of the round plate for each meal: picture everything you eat for a meal on a round plate (a flat round plate we usually use for stir-fries), with non-starchy vegetables (dark green leaves, broccoli, cauliflower, purple kale, etc.) taking up 1/2, protein foods (lean meats, eggs, soy products) taking up 1/4, and staple foods taking up 1/4. When eating out or ordering takeaways, stick to this ratio to ensure balanced nutrition.
4. Recommended food to bring.
Suppose there are times when you don’t have time to sit down for a meal. In that case, your takeaway food should preferably be chicken wraps or beef wraps, commonly found in cafes as a staple food for energy, supplemented by vegetables and fruits for additional snacks.
Consider taking oral dietary supplements such as multivitamin tablets and dietary fiber to compensate for some of the lack of natural food intake during frequent travel days when it is difficult to arrange to eat fresh vegetables and fruits.
