The week is busy enough with work, picking up kids from school, taking them to activities, keeping the house clean(ish) and trying to have a bit of social life in between. Having a busy schedule can really make it difficult to have a healthy eating pattern, let alone lose weight.

For those with a hectic schedule struggling to cook healthy meals throughout the week know you are NOT alone! Lately, I’ve been trying to cut back carbs from my diet (it’s really easier than it seems) and I’m seeing only positive results so far.

If there’s one simple step you should take towards weight loss is trying to reduce your carb intake. I’m not saying to completely ditch carbs, but reducing them can definitely benefit both your health and waist circumference.
