Enter: Meal Prepping
With a million things to do in the day, the last thing you want to be doing is spending over an hour a day in the kitchen cooking and cleaning. In order to eliminate time and effort as excuses from why complying to a diet may be difficult, we encourage all of our clients to do some form of ‘meal prep’.
Keep it ‘samey’.
Meal Prep Example 1 – Sunday ‘Meal Prep’
Meal Prep Example 2 – The Biweekly Prep
Meal Prep Example 3 – The Daily Prep
Meal Prep Example 4 – The Specific Food Prep
Should You Meal Prep Year Round?
- The condition you achieved during your fat loss phase starts slipping away quickly.
- You lose structure in your day, and you start to deviate from your meal plan.
- Too much scope for error. Laziness can creep in and you opt for easy options that make you satiated.
- You start eating out more than necessary, and begin to lose track of your calorie intake.
- You begin to make more bad choices, and find yourself caught ‘off guard’ more often. If you’ve got nothing prepared at work, and you’re hungry, it’s a lot easier to buy a chocolate bar than a protein packed meal!
- If you’re in a muscle building phase, you may struggle to reach all your calorie targets.
