Weight loss is a diverse and sensitive subject, and in truth, people in all shapes and sizes will have their own definition of losing weight.
For example, you could be very fit and wanting to lose weight for a bodybuilding competition. Or you could be looking for a complete transformation.

All the recipes you see below can be portion controlled and each serving can be low in calories. Although this could be the case for any recipe, these are made to keep you feeling full and contain healthier ingredients.

Can meal prep help you lose weight?
If you are looking for a quick weight loss transformation, this page most probably will not be for you as our approach is leans more towards the sustainable side. Yes, we do have some low-carb meal prep recipes posted, but the aim is to post ideas which are macro-friendly which keeps protein, carbs and fats well-balanced.
Here is how meal prep can help you with weight loss:
Portion control: you can use scales and calorie counter apps to determine the calories of each meal. Our recipes contain information I used from MyFitnessPal.
Mastering a meal plan: If you have a weight loss meal plan, you can prep all the recipes in advance which increases the chances of you staying on track. By prepping food in advance, you are making a logical and sensible decision which sets up your week in the right way. When you are hungry and unprepared, you are more likely to make irrational decisions when it comes to eating.
Healthier ingredients: Most meal prep recipes encourages you to use healthier ingredients which gives you the chance to sneak in more vegetables into your diet too.
You are allowed to cheat: Meal prep is not a diet or program. It is just a way to organize yourself better and be more efficient. To lose weight, try your best to get a caloric deficit and think long-term. If you have bad days or cheat days, this is fine. Just follow the 80/20 approach and you will succeed for years to come. Not every ingredient you see will be totally healthy but most will. That is fine.
