We don't have time to stress about food. We've got work to do.
Achieving results can be tough. On average, we make tens of thousands of decisions every day, and this can wear down your mind. This phenomenon is known as ‘decision fatigue’. By making only a few simple choices at the beginning of the week, we can eliminate this unnecessary fatigue from our life, helping to keep ourselves accountable (when we start to feel our bellies rumble). Deciding what you will eat beforehand is crucial to success with your diet. This meal plan will be simple, and is easily customized based entirely on your likes and dislikes.

Protein is not only essential for muscle gain, but especially for muscle retention when trying to shed fat. To find out how much you need per day, or even per meal, click here.
For a fairly large prep we will use:
Carbs seem to have gained a bad rep lately, and I'm here to tell you that they can have an incredibly important role in your diet.
We will be fueling our workouts with the following carb sources:
Dietary Fat plays many vital roles in the body, and the foods we have chosen contain a good portion of our daily fat needs. Our grass fed beef, wild caught salmon, and pasture raised chicken (provided by our friends at Nutrafarms Inc.) contain many of the essential fats we need to consume.
The meals we are preparing are meant to be the foundation of our weekly diet. We should end up with enough food for 2-3 meals per day, for the week. These meals will cover most of our Protein, Carb, and Fat Goals, and allow us to stay on track with our overall Calorie Target.
Snacks like protein shakes with fruit, yogurt or cottage cheese with berries, and eggs with toast or an apple, etc, are all great ideas to satisfy the rest of your daily nutrient needs. Find out exactly how to portion your meals by clicking here.
Here are our pairings from these items:
Taco Beef + Rice (x6)
Chicken + Potatoes + Brussel Sprouts (x6)
Fish + Broccoli (x6)
As I mentioned, this meal prep structure can be extremely versatile. With a few simple modifications, you could prepare meals when needing to lose weight, gain muscle, adhere to a keto diet, etc. Proteins and carbs could also all be cooked on the BBQ, if grilling is your thing.
