Introducing new habits into our life can be daunting, and sticking to them can be even harder. But it doesn’t have to be!

The best progress tends to come when we take things slow and focus on changing little things at a time, to ensure we properly adjust to our new, healthy lifestyle.

Here are five ways you can ensure that you will stick to your new healthy habits.

Join An Online Support Group

Having someone push you along and hold you accountable is one of the best ways to stick to healthy habits.

Once you start on your Man Shake journey, you can join our private Facebook group The Man Shakers! With over 2000 fellow blokes with the same goal as you, The Man Shakers will encourage you all the way until you reach your goal.

Make Meal Prep Fun

Healthy habits often take a while to set in, and meal prep is a perfect example of this.

Consistently preparing meals every week takes a solid mindset, and if the meals become stale to you then you are likely to give up preparing. To avoid this, keep your meals interesting by changing it up weekly.

Seek out new restaurant type healthy recipes that you can try yourself, and at the end of each week of healthy eating, be sure to reward yourself with a treat.

Keep Track Of Your Recipes

Speaking of healthy recipes, it is important to keep a list of your favourite recipes so you can easily decide what to have for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

If you want to go one step further, you can schedule meals for each day, which will make your grocery shopping easier too.

Have A Sleep Schedule

Bring back the bedtime! Poor sleep routines can negatively affect your weight loss by triggering cravings for high-calories and sugary foods.

Having a consistent time when you get into bed every night will keep your body regulated, and will ensure you are refreshed each day you wake up.

Take Snacks With You

Even if you have your meal prep sorted, you need to ensure you are ready to go with snacks if pre or post-meal hunger kicks in.

Pack with you snacks that are high in protein and fibre, and that you can have anywhere such as bananas, nuts, or our Man Bars!
