I cannot go an hour without eating (I’m not hungry, I just constantly eat) and when I do eat, I eat enough for 5 people. I always try to justify it by going to the gym, but in reality, I don’t burn off nearly enough as I eat. Which is one of the reasons why I needed a Meal plan alongside a workout plan.
So when I got my meal plan through, I was both excited and nervous. There is such a large variety of meals and they all look delicious but the portion sizes are quite small. When I say quite small, I mean they are normal size portions but that to me is half of what I normally eat so I think the first few weeks might be a bit of a struggle!
I’m also cheating slightly with the meal plan – I don’t have the space or money to eat a different breakfast, lunch and dinner each day so I’ve chosen two off the meal plan that I will rotate during the week. My food shop for the week (minus Sunday because I know I’m already going out) cost me £23. Admittedly, there were some bits that I already had in the house but there are also bits which I will use for more than one week, so cost wise, I’m really quite impressed!
The meals are also really easy and quick to make. They use very little ingredients, the recipe is very easy to follow (if I can do it, anyone can do it) and they are super quick to prepare – breakfast took a Minute, lunch took 3 minutes and dinner was 15 minutes, perfect! For breakfast I had yoghurt with linseed and nuts, lunch was a pitta bread with avocado and tomato and dinner was Salmon with noodles and vegetables. They may not be the most appealing looking dishes but they packed flavour!
Yesterday after work, my friend and I hit the gym to do the first workout. Although the workout only lasted 30 minutes, I was shattered! It was hard work, really hard work, but I didn’t feel like I was pushing my body to the extreme. The videos are so easy to follow and it is really handy having someone to watch so you can look at their technique – straight away the risk of injury is lowered
I’m so excited for this plan – yes it will be difficult, yes it is less food than I normally eat and yes, there are a lot of burpees. And I hate burpees.
But you need change for change to happen and I will be updating you with my results!
Has anyone else tried a similar diet plan?
