Challenge 3: Meal Plan
Success does not just happen–you need to plan for it and set yourself up for it. So challenge 3 involves meal planning for the next 30 days–yep, all 30 days. Once this is done, you’re all set for the month—no need to wonder what’s for dinner because it’s all laid out. Use the 30-Day Challenge snack and meal options to plan out 3 meals and 3 snacks each day. Note: If you are very active or a larger man, you may need to adjust portion sizes. Check with your nutritionist if you have questions.
Then clean out the cupboards, refrigerator, and desk drawer and restock with the healthy foods you’ve planned for. You know the basic rules; calorie-free beverages between meals, limit added sugars to 2 grams or less per serving, and eat fewer processed foods. Don’t forget to plan for some delicious clean drinks like infused water.
Put the foods / meals you’ve selected in your tracking system—no matter if that is a spreadsheet, a website or a phone app. This will make it a cinch to calculate your protein and calories.
