…But I Don’t Wanna Eat That! Do I Have To?
Not everyone wants to eat like a bodybuilder. I completely understand and feel your pain. You can only eat so much brown rice, broccoli and chicken breast each and every meal before you feel like placing a rifle in your mouth and going Private Pyle on yourself. Wait, did I just spoil Full Metal Jacket for you? Oh well…pick another film for your “Netflix and chill”.
With a busy job schedule, after school activities, evening commitments, family obligations and other items on your agenda competing for your time, energy and attention, the chances of you sticking with a fat loss or muscle building diet are much greater if your meals don’t feel like another chore and you’re able to eat the foods you actually enjoy.
For this reason, rather than supplying you with a meal plan telling you to eat what you more than likely DO NOT want to eat, I’ll furnish you with a basic understanding of how to count calories and macronutrients (carbs, fat, and protein) so you can then be left to your own devices to portion out your own meals and meet your daily totals with the foods and brands that you love to eat.
I know, I know, you hate doing anything math-related because you’re not some kinda math loving weirdo. But it’s either you
(1) learn how to count calories and macros so you can have that bowl of Frosted Flakes — the best cereal ever — for breakfast; or
(2) drink that shaker bottle of egg whites I have a feeling you’re not exactly looking so forward to gulping down every…single…morning!!!
Besides my not making you a meal plan tailored to your specific needs because its construction is not sustainable and it won’t teach you the tools you need to learn to make your diet fit your day-to-day life, I’m not allowed to tell people exactly what to eat due to this itty-bitty fact that I’m not a licensed nutritionist.
Since I’m somewhat of a square who likes to reduce his liability because of his wanting to continue not living in a van down by the river, I don’t supply meal plans for obvious legal reasons.
