No Bull Nutrition Mini Challenge- Day 3- Flexible Dieting Grocery List

Welcome back to Day 3 of No Bull Nutrition’s mini challenge series. So far we have discussed what our intentions are going to be and how we can create successful habits to bring those intentions to life.  Often times when people first begin flexible dieting, they receive their nutrition plan and are then left wondering, now what? Where do I go from here to ensure I will hit those numbers accurately? Well having success with flexible dieting means having a solid game plan. If we want to find consistency with our numbers, planning and meal prepping is only going to make your life easier.

With that said, today we are going to discuss how to create a flexible dieting grocery list. I am going to share with you what I personally pick up at the grocery store but keep in mind flexible dieting is all about making your own choices. If we truly want a program that is going to stick for us and help us reach our goals, it has to be a program that you had a hand in creating. Use my grocery list as a good starting point but always keep an open mind when trying new foods and recipes. At the end of the day its all about finding foods that you love and don’t have to force down!

So let’s get to is my grocery list. These are staples that I will keep in my kitchen at all times:Flexible dieting grocery list

We all have those days when it is 9pm and we have reached 2/3 of our macros. Now panic sets in as you try and figure out what foods you can have without going over on any of the other macros. To prevent these moments,  try to pick some things up at the store that are going to be good fillers aka foods that contain only a single macro. For example grapes would be a good carbohydrate filler. The fat and protein in a grape is essentially zero so it can be used to fill the remaining carbs you may have.

Like I mentioned before, flexible dieting is all about learning to enjoy the foods you love while remaining stress-free. Remember to always stay creative in the kitchen and try new things. Just take it one day at a time.

Check back in on Wednesday when we will discuss common mistakes flexible dieters make.
