What's the difference between guys who eat healthy occasionally and guys who eat healthy by default?
It's simple. Those who eat healthy on the regular prep their meals ahead of time.
It's harder to say no to unhealthy convenience options like frozen mac and cheese dinners when you're busy and exhausted.
Of course, prepping a week's worth of meals might sound complicated.
But it's easy once you get the hang of it, and it'll save you time in the long run.
(Not to mention money, since you'll no longer be relying on breakfast sandwiches from the coffee shop or takeout after work.)
Here's how to meal prep in 4 simple steps to help you get started.
Step1: Check your calendar.
How many breakfasts, lunches, and dinners will you need for the upcoming week?
Start by figuring out what meals you'll need to prep for-factoring in things like dates, meals with clients, and travel.
Knowing exactly when you'll need meals and when you won't helps you plan more efficiently and avoid wasting food.
Step2: Make a menu.
Make your meals nutritionally balanced. Aim for 30 to 40 grams of protein, 15 to 20 grams of fat, and 50 to 60 grams of carbs per meal
Keep it simple. You don't have to cook like you're on Top Chef. The less complicated your meals are, the easier it'll be to prep them.
Step3: Go food shopping.
Make a grocery list and head to the store.
Aim to do your big weekly shop on Saturday or early Sunday,to get in and out as fast as possible, organize your grocery list by section (produce, meat, dairy, etc.).
Step4: Prep and pack your food.
It's worth blocking out time on the weekend to get your ingredients ready for weekday meal assembly.
Once the week starts, there's a greater chance that the prep just won't happen
