It probably hasn’t escaped your attention that every James Bond film is pretty much the same.
The next one isn’t even in production yet.
But I can safely predict much of what’s going to happen.
There will be a big opening sequence where Bond will defy death on more than one occasion… some flirting with Miss Moneypenny… a fist fight on a train… Bond will rescue one of his girlfriends from certain death, while simultaneously saving much of the human race from complete destruction.
But also highly enjoyable.
And extremely successful to boot.
Skyfall and Spectre, the two most recent Bond films, made well over $1 billion at the box office.
Predictable can also be successful.
And you can apply the exact same principle to your diet.
You don’t need to come up with new and different things to eat all the time.
In fact, making your diet predictable can make it a whole lot easier to get in shape.
When I’m planning my own diet, for example, I’ll come up with a list of 2 or 3 different lunches and dinners.
Then, I’ll make sure that the nutrient composition of each one is much the same in terms of calories and protein.
In other words, lunches A, B and C have a similar calorie and protein count.
Same thing for dinners A, B and C.
Then I’ll just “pick and mix” from the list each day.
So day one might be lunch A and dinner B.
On day two, it’ll be lunch B and dinner C.
Lunch C and dinner A the next day… and so on.
You get the idea.
Planning your meals in this way does require a bit of time and work on the front end.
But I much prefer it to following meal plans created by someone else, which usually contain a bunch of fancy ingredients I’ve never heard of, stuff I don’t like eating, or meals that take too long to prepare.
