People seem to be talking about weekly meal plans everywhere you go. So, why is planning your weekly meals such a big thing, and why should you consider a weekly meal plan to reach your goals? Well, because it works. Here is how.
Make every meal count by counting nutrients.
Counting nutrients isn’t some new fad. All the foods we eat have macronutrients and micronutrients. Micronutrients refer to vitamins, iron, calcium, potassium, and other essential nutrients found in food. Macronutrients are mainly fat, protein, and carbohydrates, which are the building blocks of all food. Each nutrient is in varying amounts in all foods, although the percentages depend on the ingredients.
Calories in your food are made up of macronutrients. Iron doesn’t increase your calorie intake, but fat, protein, and carbohydrates do. One gram of protein or carbohydrates provides four calories, compared to nine calories in one gram of fat.
Consistency is key to success.
The truth is all nutrients have an important place in a balanced diet. If you’re new to health and nutrition, the first step in your process should be to get familiar with nutrients and consistently measure them. Plan what percentage of your diet will be carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and how many calories you genuinely need each day. Once you’re planning with nutrition goals in mind comes having fun with a variety of choices.
Is there one fit-all diet?
The answer is NO! We have a 100% personalized A La Carte menu and customizable goal-based weekly menus because not everybody has the same goals. Everything from age, sex, weight, activity level, and the style of exercise to specific fitness goals such as losing weight or muscle building. And your unique food allergies go into tailor-made goal-based weakly meals! You’re unique, and so is your meal.
How to plan your weekly meals to support your unique goal
First, you need to establish your personal goals. Do not follow your favorite Influencer’s meal plan. First, you must create a healthy meal plan that sustains your goals: gain muscle, lose weight, have better energy, or create balance. Consider your exercise regimes, activity level, and food allergies.
Second, improve your eating habits. A simple technique is to divide your daily calorie, carb, fat, and protein goals by 4. Your nutrient targets for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks would be provided by this. The target nutrients for your two snacks can then be obtained by dividing that 1/4 figure by two.
For instance, you require about 1,800 calories daily, which come from 90g of protein, 270g of carbohydrates, and 40g of fat. Here is how that would appear if it were distributed equally across breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks each day: Each meal has 450 calories, 67 grams of carbohydrates, 22 grams of protein, and 10 grams of fat. The two snacks have 225 calories, 33 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fat, and 11 grams of protein each.
Here, perfection is not the target! While it’s doubtful that the numbers will be exactly met at every meal, having marks to work toward will help you stay 80 percent consistent.
Third, consistency is necessary and important. Weekly meal plans are successful primarily due to the power of consistency rather than the nutritional magic. Your body is a machine that works best when it is fed with confidence and knowledge. It begins collaborating with you.
Let’s assume you were consuming 1500. To save time, you skipped meals to later have fried food and drinks with your friends; other times; it was fast food or drive-through dinners. With that kind of routine, your body is flying blind. Your body will applaud you for losing weight by eating more nutrient-dense whole foods on a weekly meal plan.
How Go Clean Meals help you plan your weekly meals
We’re here to help you in achieving your health and fitness goals. Many other meal plan services prepare meals in factories that sit frozen for weeks until they arrive at your door. Being made in mass batches far away also means they can’t afford to be accommodating. Our plant-based healthy meal never loses nutrients from being frozen; your meal is freshly cooked on the day of delivery. We consider your allergies and preferences. Do you hate cilantro, or you can’t have sugar? We make those changes just for you.
Every Go Clean Meal is personalized depending on your preference – Vegetarian? Low carb? High Protein? No problem! Please choose from our various food options and customize them exactly how you want.
Imagine having a different breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day of the month while maintaining the consistency your mind and stomach require to maintain your fitness and health goals.
Enjoy the best of both worlds with Go Clean Meals. The delicious convenience of eating out every day, not to mention the 8–10 hours of free time you gain back on your week, as well as the consistency of working toward your health and fitness goals in terms of eating healthy, correctly portioned, cost-effective, and sanity-saving.
