Build Muscle & Lose Body Fat with MightyMeals
By: Virginia Kinkel
As a Personal Trainer and gym owner, I’ve spent countless years helping others transform their physique. For everyone, a positive change in your physique changes comes from two factors: either an increase in muscle mass, a decrease in fat mass or a combination of both. While it’s easy to determine what needs to change, it’s much more challenging to execute a plan.
Fitness, what you’re doing for cardio and strength training, will inevitably have an impact, whether positive or negative, on your body composition. But that’s just a small piece of the puzzle. What most people struggle with is making consistent changes over an extended period of time in their nutrition. It’s easy to say “I need to eat healthier” but it’s much more challenging to know WHAT that looks like and HOW to make it happen.
Enter MightyMeals. Not only does this meal prep company provide delicious, high quality food and amazing customer service, their A La Carte Menu options provide the perfect formula to set clients up for success. With the bulk items, from meat, to veggies, to carb options, all it takes is portioning out the food and heating it up. This is especially important during times like now when it’s so easy to fall in the routine of minimal exercise and poor eating habits. Below I’ve outlined two meal plans that rely solely on MightyMeals A La Carte Menu items (minus one thing) and can be executed for anyone.
Below are outlines of two common clients we see at Bodymass including an estimated weight and typical body composition goals. While sometimes it’s actually easier to have a plan where all the meals are similar, that can become monotonous. To prevent boredom, the plans below include a variety of carb options, protein options and veggie options to allow the variety that most clients seek. While there is some variety, MightyMeals offers so many other A La Carte Menu options there are almost endless pairing options.
