Melbourne: You need more than planning and organisation to win the weight-loss battle.Nutritionist Susie Burrell`s new book, The Monday to Friday Diet, is offering practical tips on how to plan your week and make your diet work for you. Each day is allocated a chapter that`s loaded with tips, menus and planning ideas to make your objectives clear. Looking at the week gives you structure and gives you control of your working week and your food, said Burrell. Prepare for the week ahead by making a meal plan and doing your shopping for the week. Buy enough for lunch and dinner and healthy snacks for the next five days, she suggested.Cook at least two meals from your plan and freeze them on Sunday, she added. "I call them sacred Sundays. Use this day to reset and nourish yourself and that way you will find the week doesn`t pile up on you and you are more rested and in control. This prevents you from running on empty," she explained. Burrell suggests writing down an exercise plan for every day of the week. Prioritise Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for exercise so that if things get busy later in the week you have at least three sessions done, Burrell said.
