Coach Jess shows you how she food preps like a boss!
Next, we will teach her how to video!
It’s no secret when you think of living a specific lifestyle that it takes commitment and most importantly, discipline. Whatever lifestyle you chose to follow, do just that, and follow it. Own your decisions and own what works for you. I was introduced to RP last May and I have NOT looked back. Throughout my journey with them, I went from their Cut plan, to Maintenance, to a brief period of massing, then now back on Cut. It is not the lifestyle for everyone, but for me, I LOVE IT! It has brought me MANY PR’s and most importantly, provided me the education and science behind how to lose fat, maintain muscle, and be happy doing it all!
Every Friday I make my 28 meals (Meal #1 is my workout shake and Meal #6 I make right before bed) in one hour, so I am SET for the week. I cannot tell you how AWESOME it is to know that for the entire week I never need to guess what I should eat, stress about where to go for lunch or if I’ll have time in between workouts or meetings to grab something- I am ALWAYS reassured because I made them and they are patiently waiting for me! RP keeps me FUELED for my workouts. The macros they provide me are all centered on the type of workout I do AND the times I complete them.
How do I meal prep? I keep life REAL simple and chose 3 different type of proteins to have (Turkey, Buffalo Chicken, Egg whites), three different types of veggies (spinach, green beans, cauliflower rice), 3 different type of carbs (oatmeal, rice, Josephs Wraps), and 1 type of fat (almond butter). With any meal prep, the more complex you make it, the more frustrations that come with it. Keep. It. Simple. And like I stress in my video, make it FUN! Play your favorite tunes! Make it a competition in finishing it faster! Whatever you do, keep your attitude positive. If you go into meal prepping complaining and whining, that is what you will get out of it. Be grateful that YOU get to have CHOICE and control into your goals and what you want for your body and health!
Everyone’s macros are different so how much you need to cook will vary but here is what I do in order:
- Start making my ground turkey (64 ounces)
- In the process, measure out my oatmeal and put the 90-second rice packets in the microwave
- Take packets out, measure out my rice and place in containers.
- Carbs are DONE (the wraps I make at home)
- Finish making the meat and portion out 4 ounces in 6 containers and 3 ounces in remaining 8 containers.
- Make veggies enough for 3-4 days at a time. Portion out.
1 scoop of Level-1 protein, ¾ scoop of Ignition, with 16 ounces of water!
