As I am approaching the end of my bulking phase and preparing to diet, I wanted to take time to reflect on what has actually been the most helpful thing when it comes to diet.
Dedication to your diet and to your goals of course plays a huge role in success, but there are other factors at play that can make staying dedicated far easier.
Preparation is key, so they say, and this I definitely agree with, but to what extent you need to be prepared depends on many factors.
Some people prep a whole weeks worth of meals each Sunday, others prep the working weeks lunches, or prep for 2/3 days. For me the prep that I do is simply planning out my meals. This is made possible by having the convenience of Live Lean UK delivering my meat to my door each month in bulk orders.
When my meat delivery arrives I start to jot down exactly what meals and how many meals the delivery will allow me to make, and what extra foods I will need in order to make them. At the start of each week I do my food shop to accommodate those meals and each evening defrost the meat required for the next night. Who says eating healthily needs to be expensive? With a bundle from live lean and fresh veg bought weekly, eating bulking calories, or eating a clean high protein diet doesn’t need to be another excuse to not reach your goals.
Personally I don’t like cooking a weeks worth of chicken and leaving it in tuppaware, and for me its just not necessary as I make sure I have time in the mornings to prep a quick lunch. My George Foreman grill makes cooking my chicken quick and easy, and doing it that way keeps the chicken juicy until lunchtime.
I don’t know about you, but I cannot even remember a time when I bulk bought meat in this way from the supermarket. For one its extortionately expensive, and I also feel in that supermarket setting with all of the other foods around me I would easily get distracted. Ordering my meat in bulk from Live Lean keeps my order to a budget, enables me to order exactly what I want, or opt for a money saving bundle, and means I only need to then buy the essentials each week which in my case is usually just veg.
As for shipping meats, I appauld them for their skills in keeping the delivery fresh with frozen bags inside. Deliveries come the day they say it will, and if your not home can be left in a safe place where it will stay cool until you get home! If you haven’t yet tried preparing your meals this way to implore you to give it a chance, it really is a game changer.
