My food list for shortcut to shred.

Getting your nutrition right is vital to the success of a workout plan. What you do in the kitchen can make or break the results you produce in the gym. If I am being honest, I haven’t yet gotten great at meal preps, but I’m getting there. And it’s alright if you don’t get it right when you start out. Sometimes it can get really intimidating when you see other beautifully done preps online. Have you seen how incredibly great the food pics on Pinterest look? Damn!

During my last 12-week transformation program which was from Jamie Eason, still from bodybuilding.com, I realized about 9 weeks in, I was severely undereating. It wasn’t intentional. And as soon as I upped my food quantity, I significantly lost fat and gained some muscle mass. I wouldn’t want to repeat that same mistake.

So, for this workout plan, I listed down the approved foods that were accessible to me from the food list they provide and paired them with appropriate food groups. The only extra thing I added was Pumpkin. I, unfortunately, bought a very big tasteless one and I haven’t quite figured out what to do with it.

This is the food list I plan to work with throughout the program:

Protein

-Beef

-Chicken

-Eggs

-Fish

-Liver (added)

 

Dairy

-Plain yogurt

 

Whole Grain

-Brown rice

-Oatmeal

-Sweet potato

-Whole wheat pasta

 

Vegetables

-Green beans (Michiri)

-Cauliflower

-Bell peppers (hoho)

-Zucchini (courgette)

-Eggplant

-Spinach

-Kale

-Pumpkin

 

Fruit

-Orange

-Banana

-Pear

-Mango (added)

 

How would your meal plan look like using the above ingredients?

Pair any of the foods together and post them below to see what you’d come up with. Break them down into 4 meals; Breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack.

I`ll share what I made next week.
