My gorgeous friend @caligirlgetsfit has the best posts! 👌🏼👌🏼 Keep reading to see her caption: 🐯 When Scar from the Lion King said BE PREPARED! He was prob talking about mealprep, because why else would he need to assemble such a big army of hyenas? 🐺 LOL Seriously though, meal prepping and macros takes a lot of discipline and motivation, however once you get going, it’s worth it for not only the convenience and results. Here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions via DM and comments!
Q: What are macros?
A: Foods can be broken down into carbs, fat, and protein. By tracking them instead of just calories, you can make sure you’re getting the right amount of each into your day. Also, flexible dieting allows you to still eat some of your fave foods 🍫 and not be restricted as long as you stay within your target macros!
Q: Once you figure out your target macros, how does that translate into what food you eat?
A: Each of the foods you eat can be broken down into macros (carbs, fat, and protein). For example even something as simple as broccoli has carbs, fat, and protein. I use the free myfitnesspal app, where you can search for foods to find out the macro breakdown. I’m currently working on a part 2 video which will show you how I create my meal plans. Stay tuned for that in the next week or so!
Q: Doesn’t melprepping take a lot of time?
A: It may seem like it, but a few hours on a Sunday ends up saving a lot of time in the long run during the busy work week.
Q: Does your food stay fresh for a whole week?
A: I try to prep things that reheat well. For example pasta or baked chicken can last all week in the fridge. For things like scrambled eggs, I often wake up a little bit earlier in the morning to make them fresh and eat them on the go on the way to work!
