“It’s all about setting yourself up for success. The more we can plan out our food in advance the better. We’re more likely to make a good decision if it’s already there and ready to go. If the vegetables are already chopped I’m going to eat them. If there’s a whole bag of carrots in the fridge, I may not eat them because I don’t want to take the time to chop them.”
