Organise your space for success


Slim, fit body is a result of right eating habits. Controlling your plate content is an only small step toward successful weight loss. The more important thing is to organise your living space. No, I do not mean cleaning. In order to stay on the right eating track you will have to create nice environment.


Just imagine that you have discovered the right “diet” for your goal and you are determined to get to the end but your living space is packed with “temptations”. As long as your fridge and cupboards are packed with read meals, sweets, and processed food, you are more likely to grab them as a quick snack.


You have to change that in order to stay focused. It is ok to have something here and there, but if you are beginning your journey it will be much easier for you not to remove all these temptations around your house.


Let’s get organised!


Your kitchen is the crucial place so we should focus there.


Start with your fridge and eliminate;


  • all processed food- fish fingers
  • buttered fish
  • ready meals
  • ice creams
  • sorbets- sweetened ones
  • pizzas
  • fries
  • pies


By eliminating them, you will reduce trans fats, high glicemic index food, sugars and salt straight away.


  • all sweet juices;
  • sodas
  • processed fruit juices


 They are all high glicemic Index food


  • ready meals. It is anything that has not been cooked by you that you can just heat up and eat. They are usually meals that you can buy from a shop like: pies, lasagnes, quiches


They are high in Tran’s fats and sugar

 dessert m

Bought desserts like:

  • puddings
  • pies
  • ice-creams
  • cakes
  • cookies


They are packed with trans fats and sugars


  • canned soups
  • ready soups from markets


They are also high in trans fats


  • sauces
  • ketchup
  • mayonnaise
  • dressings


High in sugar, salt and trans fats


So what you can leave in your fridge:


  • frozen and fresh fish (unprocessed fresh fish)
  • eggs – they are amazing source of proteins
  • lean meat: beef, chicken, turkey
  • cheese – the best are: feta, parmesan, mozzarella
  • Fruits and vegetables- fresh and seasonal. Think unprocessed frozen or fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Frozen lean meat
  • Spring water
  • Fruit juice – freshly squeezed from fruits
  • Low fat milk




Remove all;


  • cakes
  • biscuits
  • chocolate
  • chocolate bars
  • chips
  • salted or sweetened nuts


All of them are packed with trans fats and are high glicemic Index food. They also contain glucose-fructose syroup.


What to choose for cupboards?


  • tea: green and black
  • herbs and spices. Make sure you have curry powder, black pepper, chili powder, cinnamon, ginger, basil, oregano
  • oats
  • whole grains: oats, rise, pasta, bread
  • quinoa
  • beans
  • canned fish- mackerel, sardines, salmon, tuna
  • onions




  • fresh fruits
  • bananas
  • apples
  • oranges
  • Clementine’s
  • blueberries
  • melons
  • strawberries
  • water


Useful tips;


  • plan your meals ahead
  • shop with shopping list
  • do not shop on empty stomach
  • read labels
  • do not buy food with trans fats
  • do not eat processed food


Our house, place where we can relax and chill can be potentially a death trap. Without knowing you are reaching for food that is easy and time saving. It is not a right way. Saving time that way will make you work harder and longer in a gym.
