Whether you’re trying to get in shape for a competition, or simply trying to watch the foods that you eat, having a meal plan is one of the best ways to stay on track.
A meal plan is where you decide in advance what you’re going to be eating and snacking on. By preparing what you’re eating beforehand, you’ll be more likely to eat healthy, and less likely to reach for unhealthy foods and snacks.
Although anyone can make a meal plan for themselves, we always think it’s a good idea to get one prepared for you by a professional.
Your fitness journey is completely unique to you, so you want to have a meal plan that’s completely personalised to your needs and that takes into account your age, weight, fitness goals and dietary requirements.
Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider getting a meal plan created for you by a professional.
It’s completely tailored to you
Everyone’s fitness journey is completely different, therefore the foods that we eat need to be tailored to our routines and habits—things that a general meal plan won’t be able to tailor to.
When you request a meal plan from an expert, they will take the time to discuss your needs and requirements so that they can come up with a plan that will help you hit your goals.
It will help you reach your fitness goals, faster
Your tailored meal plan will be specifically focussed on achieving the results that you want to see—whether that be losing weight, getting leaner or toning up.
With a specialised meal plan from an expert you’ll be able to hit your goals much faster than you would if you were to come up with a plan on your own.
Meal plans will also take into consideration your current exercise routines so that they can complement each other and be more effective.
It will contain a variety of foods and meals
Do you ever find that you end up cooking the same meals over and over again? With a meal plan you’ll be exposed to lots of new and exciting meals and snacks that you would have never thought of yourself.
Meal plans make food fun and interesting, because staying fit shouldn’t be boring!
Takes the hassle and time out of coming up with your own plan and recipes
Coming up with a meal plan is time-consuming, and who has the free time to do that amongst their busy schedules?
Requesting a meal plan takes all of the hassle out of deciding what you’re going to eat in a week, instead you can just be given a shopping list of ingredients and recipes that have been thought of already for you.
Fit Kitchen was founded in 2015 by aesthetic bodybuilder and athlete Amar Lodhia, who as a former CEO of a national charity and an entrepreneur with a very busy life faced the problem of eating in line with his training goals.
