Porridge on Tuesday is not as the name suggests anything to do with porridge, unless you want it to be of course. It is in fact the name of an exciting healthy eating plan that can help you to lose weight, at a rate that you want or even just maintain a steady weight by following healthy menus. There are some delicious recipe ideas using everyday foods that are simple and quick to prepare.
A few months ago, I took the challenge and followed a Porridge on Tuesday plan in a bid to lose a bit of weight. You can read about my first impressions here and after 4 weeks here. I lost just over a stone on my journey and discovered that I loved the meal plans on offer, the flexibility to chop and change meals around, discard meals you are not keen on in exchange for others and tailor your weekly food to suit you. This meant it was more enjoyable to follow and easier to maintain although for me I do find that following a plan like this keeps me motivated and on track. When you haven’t got somewhere to check in each week it is easy to lose your way.
Hence why Porridge on Tuesday may be for you, a great opportunity to follow a healthy eating plan at the start of 2014 to get over any overeating you may do over the festive period and lose a few extra pounds you may have gained. Or if you are looking for a little more weight loss, the plan can be tailored to your individual needs.

I make small goals to achieve throughout the year so that it gives me something to aim for at different stages rather than a massive ultimate goal. That way I find its more achievable which keeps my motivation going longer 😀
