It can be difficult to maintain a busy life, balanced diet and workout schedule without superhuman dedication – or a little bit of planning and consistency. Planning meals is an absolute must if you want to stick to your nutrition goals. Having healthy meals prepped and ready to go will not only make things cheaper for you, it will minimise snacking and keep you feeling fuller.

 

Marek from @marekfitness   has carefully compiled a detailed 7-day meal prep plan for someone looking to stick to a low calorie diet whilst still keeping things interesting. Each day is between 1600 and 1800 calories. Watch out for Day 3 though, it’s just 1299 calories! If you’re training, or simply prefer higher calorie plans you should leave it out.

 

We’ve worked out the easiest way to maximise meals with less effort. For example, preparing mango salsa turkey meatballs for Day 1’s dinner will make Day 2’s lunch an absolute breeze. We’ve also made sure to use the same ingredients over multiple days, so you won’t have to go out and stock your fridge with a million different things each week! Each day has a mix of berries and veggies, and buying a big pot of Greek yoghurt will set you up for a week of breakfasts and snacks.

 

This plan includes all relevant supplements, and each day has a serve of True Protein WPI90. Some days also include Pre Workout and Glutamine as well.
