Finally – the first meal plan is about to go online! I am very excited I can show you the first meal plan (with some personal experiences included), since I know this is a topic which really interests and affects so many). I hope I can shortly afterwards show you awesome training techniques and exercises as well, so that we all get that perfect body going. I am currently building up a little stash of pictures, so I can actually show you, what the exercises should look. Therefore sorry that it takes so long and stay with me. The how-to’s on exercises will come very soon!
Stay on track with your calorie intake – and save money!
Back to the mealplan: Meal planning will help you to stay on track with calorie intake and simplify your daily life. Who can find an answer to the question: “whats for dinner?” every day of the week? With a meal plan: you! It also saves you money and reduces food waste, since you just buy what you will need for the upcoming meals and don’t fall shopping trap “Oh, I could cook this soon” – and end of trashing it because you forgot about it in the back of the fridge.
For your first dieting-mealplan my husband and I decided to follow Matt Ogus. He is a natural bodybuilder and his meal plan seemed the most appealing to us. We are two weeks in so far.
How are we doing with our mealplanning?
My husband enjoys it. He likes the 4 meals over the day and besides for the first days, I haven’t heard any complaints, that he is hungry. He is eating abot 2,500 calories per day, which, with his active lifestyle, still results in good shredding results.
For me, and I am not going to lie to you, the mealplanning is getting harder every day. The first days I loved. I loved the food and I loved that I didn’t had to think about what to cook. But the longer we are following this meal plan – the harder it gets for me. I am that person who likes variety. So having to eat the same thing over and over again is getting to me slowly. So I will probably try to change the meals up a little, by still staying in the same calorie range (for me about 1,500 calorie a day). I will keep you updated how that will go.
But now really:
