One of the main challenges people face when becoming fitter and healthier is managing their meals. I know this was a stumbling block for me at times in the past. With time I’ve developed positive habits around food preparation.
Everyone is different, and there’s more than one way to go about it. I’m sharing my process below in its entirety so you can take something from it.
Bulk meal prep is not only time-efficient but also energy-efficient with the added bonus of keeping your eating habits healthy. A Monday is my day off so at 6am (early bird and all that) I stick an interesting podcast on to keep me entertained and prepare my breakfast, lunch, and supplements for the next 6 days. It’s a little bit of time investment upfront, but it is time that I save throughout the week. Usually, I’ll be finished and cleaned up by 9 am.
So an investment of 3 hours, one day a week, will repay itself with interest by the end of the week. There are also the added benefits of knowing that I don’t have to think about food, that I’ll have enough energy to train hard every day, work effectively on the business, and sleep well for optimal recovery. This is without a doubt one of the best time investments you can make to start your week.
With a bit of practice, this becomes permanent.
As they taught us in the military if you fail to prepare you to prepare to fail.
My accountability to you for today.
