Meal Plan
Meal Plan

Hi all, I just have a quick question. I work often/go to school, and don't really have time to prepare meals. One day a week I make a week's worth of whole grain pasta as well as protein pizza muffins that are shown in the nutrition guide. In addition, I consume a protein bar, protein shake, and shakeology each day. I don't have time to prepare all different types of food; I only have time to make stuff in bulk. Will not varying my meal plan inhibit my results?

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Alex,

Knowing and understanding nutrition plays such a vital role in any fitness program. What is extremely important is knowing what your daily caloric intake level is. This will help you put together a nutrition plan to get the best out of your fitness routine.

I understand how busy people get and unfortunately that is how life is today...busy! Not eating the right foods and the right amount could possibly inhibit your results. But to give you a hand in the right direction, here is a list of foods to add to your nutrition:

For foods: any type of vegetable (the greener, the leafier, the better!), almonds, pistachios, walnuts, strawberries, grapes, bananas, apples, quinoa, ground turkey, turkey, turkey sausage, chicken sausage, salmon, haddock (any seafood really!), chicken breasts, avacados, protein bars (Pure Protein brand is the best!), cheese sticks, turkey pepperoni, beef jerky, oatmeal, wheat or multigrain bread, eggs, skim or lowfat milk, greek yogurt (I like chobani personally!), steak (in small portions), tuna, brown rice, pork (preferably the tenderloin), hummus, ham.....

This is just a small list of what is actually out there for you to purchase. I would then enter these foods into myfitnesspal.com. This is a wonderful food/calorie tracker website.......probably one of the best out there! It is completely customizable to set percentages and follow what you eat so you stay within those percentages.

If you have yet to dial in your caloric intake, let me know and I can certainly give you a hand! From there, it's quite easy to design a nutrition plan!

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have!!!
