Let’s face it…meal prepping can be really hard and time-consuming. Meal prepping can be a key element when it comes to weight loss. Here at T2 Fitness, we want to make your meal-prepping a little easier with some tips to get you ahead of the eating game!
What Do I Need?
Snack Size and Sandwich Size Ziploc Bags and a Black Sharpie
What Do I Do?
Pull enough bags for a morning and afternoon snack each day. That should be about 5 sandwich sized bags and 5 snack sized bags. With your sharpie, write on your sandwich sized bag a time for your morning snack. Your morning snack should be eaten 2-3 hours after your breakfast and about 2 hours before your lunch. (For example, if you eat breakfast at 7:30AM, your snack bag should say 10:00AM. You should then eat lunch around 12:00). After that, fill your sandwich size bags half way with fruit (sliced apples, strawberries, grapes, etc.)
Next, mark you snack sized bag with an afternoon snack time. You should have your afternoon snack about 2-3 hours after your lunch. (For example, if you eat lunch around 12:30PM, your snack bag should say 3:00PM.) After that, fill your snack size bags with something healthy (mixed nuts, trail mix minus the chocolate, wheat crackers, pita chips, etc.)
Now you will not forget WHEN you need to eat your snacks because you have marked your snacks appropriately. Food is your fuel and keeps your metabolism running in order to burn more calories to get rid of that excess weight.
