Are you hesitant to follow a meal plan because you don’t want to eat the same boring meals every day?
Calorie and Macro goals.. Why bother? If you hate eating the same boring meals every day then knowing your numbers can help give you more freedom with your food choices.
If your goal is to transform your body, whether it be losing weight or gaining muscle, setting nutritional goals and sticking to a plan is your surest way of getting there.
I know macros and calories can seem intimidating and confusing, but with some practice you will gain an amazing nutritional education that will help you maintain your goal body for the rest of your life.
So let’s imagine you’ve already figured out your meal plan and you know the amount of calories, proteins, carbs and fats you’re aiming for per meal.
I’m going to use your post-workout meal as the example, because I recommend you have the same or similar macros every day whether you workout or not. Sometimes you’ll crave sweet treats like chocolate chip cookies for example, so it’s important to have ways of fitting these kind of things in without breaking the nutritional bank.
By switching up the way you consume your macros you can keep your diet interesting and different all while saying “on-point” and knowing where you stand with your diet, whether you’re in a daily surplus or deficit, which is hugely helpful in reaching your body transformation goals.
If you are consistently in a surplus you’ll gain weight, if you are consistently in a deficit you’ll lose weight.
Being in a surplus or deficit for 1 day will not make or break your results, but what you do MOST of the time and on a DAILY basis will.
Today we’re going to focus on a post-workout meal (typically just protein and carbs, low in fats) and making the meal in 3 different ways to demonstrate just a few examples of variety you can have with your meal planning. These aren’t the ONLY way to fulfill these macro goals, but should give you some ideas & you can start to create your own favorite macro-friendly meal ideas.
For this meal we are aiming for:
Version 1: Blueberry Banana Post Workout Shake
Version 2: Chocolate Banana Proatmeal
Version 3: Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie (or pancake)
I hope this inspired you to get more creative with your meals while still meeting your goals.
