If you are trying to lose body fat, but are struggling, the information I am going to share with you today could be the MOST IMPORTANT of anything I’ve ever sent.
Because, once you plan out 1) exactly WHAT you need to eat to get results, and 2) make a do-able PLAN to get it done consistently, you WILL see success.
This is going to take the mystery out of diet planning for you, once and for all …
Complete Grocery List + 90 Mins / Week Meal Prep Plan
Step 1 – Plan your diet for the week
We need to have a plan of what we are going to eat each day of the week, first and foremost. Check out one of the sample plans I have posted recently on the blog at ForestVance.com, or learn more about my custom diet planning program at the bottom of this message.
After we have our diet planned out for the week, we need to go out and get the food. Go shopping. The best way is to have a grocery list.
Step 2 – Make your grocery list
Take your diet plan, and make a grocery list. (This is actually included with our custom meal planning program).
Here’s my exact grocery list from last week, as an example. (We DO get more than this for the whole family – it’s myself, my wife, and two little ones – but for sake of simplicity, I separated out what applies to me):
coffee – 1 bag
eggs – 1 dozen
plain instant oatmeal – 1 box of 12 packets, plain
2% milk – 1/2 gallon
blueberries – 1 large container
apples – 6
peanut butter – 6 single serve packets
pretzels – one bag
turkey breast from deli – 12 oz
tuna – 3 cans
light mayo – small jar
avocados – 2
baby carrots – large bag
whole wheat bread – 1 loaf
string cheese – bag of 12
bananas – 6
potatoes – 3
brown rice – 3 bags, ready-to-heat-and-eat
frozen broccoli – 3 bags
frozen green beans – 3 bags
chicken breasts – 1 pound
ground beef – 1 pound
Step 3 – Meal prep
Now we have gone shopping, it is time to meal prep!
I do it 2x per week, and it takes me about 45 minutes each time.
Basically I prep up meals for 3 days at a time, each time.
Then there is one “free” day per week where I do no meal prep at all, and just eat what I want, within reason.
I will eat something similar most days, as is outlined here, for a couple of weeks, and then switch it up with some new foods. (My custom diet planning program includes a full 7 days of different meal plans, so that you can switch it up like this for quite a while, and never get bored.)
Breakfast each day is coffee with a dash of 2% milk, hard boiled eggs, instant oatmeal (with 2% milk), and blueberries.
I hard boil the eggs ahead of time, this takes maybe 20 or 30 minutes while I’m cooking a batch of dinners. The rest is super easy, and only takes a few minutes to put together.
Snacks each day are 1) apples / peanut butter / pretzels and 2) string cheeses / banana. This takes basically zero prep – I just take 2 minutes in the AM, the day of, to put everything in my lunch box 🙂
Lunch each day is either a turkey (4 oz) sandwich on whole wheat bread with 1/2 an avocado, OR a tuna sandwich with light mayo on whole wheat bread, + baby carrots. Again, this takes very little prep, maybe 2 minutes in the morning to get together.
Dinner is either chicken breast + a yam + broccoli or a ground beef patty + brown rice + green beans. I’ll just cook a huge batch of either dinner, enough for the whole family for three nights. It takes about 45 minutes to do this.
And there you have it. Healthy meal prep, in about 90 minutes per week.
Now everyone IS different.
You like different foods.
You have specific things you can and cannot eat.
You have to cook for teenagers.
Etc etc etc.
I get it!
BUT! – you CAN make this work for you. The HUGE take-aways are 1) PLAN your diet, and what you are going to eat each week, 2) do the shopping, get the GROCERIES you need to make it happen, and 3) take the tiny amount of time required to prep your meals and eat properly so that you can reach your goals.
Hope this helps! –
