If you want to be successful at living a healthier life, you have to plan ahead. If you don't plan ahead, your'e going to choose what's easiest in the moment. That is human nature. If you want to beat that natural inclination, you'll want to find a convenient time to prep for the week ahead. Then, when you're in a hurry, stressed out, or just plain tired, the healthiest choice can be as easy as grabbing a meal prep container and throwing it in the microwave.
I have found so much success with meal prepping. I even have a meal prep buddy! We each make 8 meal preps and then swap 4 with each other so we have two meals to choose from all week. It has been amazing!
I wanted to give you guys my favorite meal prep tips so that you can be successful in your fat loss journey or healthier eating journey!
#1 Get enough containers for a week! Don't forget to purchase small ones for sauces. These are my favorite meal prep containers!
#2 Start with one meal a week along with a few prepped snacks. These are my favorite macro cookbooks. They have seriously changed my life, ha! High protein and already entered into MyFitnessPal. SO MANY OPTIONS! SO GOOD! Guys, seriously, get your hands on these. Worth every penny! I have all of them and love them all!
#3 Pre-log the info into MyFitnessPal (app). If you are currently counting macros (IIFYM), this makes it so much easier! It is best to plan your macros the night before so you aren't left with a bunch of protein grams and minimal carbs. It really doesn't take too much time to plan ahead and the dividends make it well worth it!
