MEAL PREP SUNDAY - 5th AUGUST 2018 - 2000 CALORIES & 6 MEALS PER DAY

This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 2000 calories. The daily intake will be broken down into 6 meals, being breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack, post-workout and dinner.
  
  
The 2000 calorie intake per day has been divided or 'split' into the 3 macro-nutrients (macros); protein, carbohydrates (carbs) and lipids (fat). This week's daily meals have been planned out to meet a rough split - 40/30/30 or 40% protein, 30% carbs and 30% fat. The amount of each of the macros is up to personal preference, diet requirements or a target metabolic consumption. The table below shows the breakdown of the daily calorie intake into each of the macros. 

 

Protein Carbs Fat Total
Split 40% 28% 32% 100%
Calories 796 572 648 2016
Grams 199g 143g 72g

 

Each of the 6 planned meals plays an important part in obtaining the required daily calorie intake. This week's meal prep will include the following food for each meal:

  • Breakfast - Breakfast Smoothie
  • Morning Tea - Nice & Natural Protein Nut Bar
  • Lunch - Quinoa Cashew Chicken Bake
  • Afternoon Snack - Smoked Tuna and Cruskets
  • Post-Workout - Protein Shake
  • Dinner - Quinoa Cashew Chicken Bake

 The table below shows the macro breakdown of each of the meals to get our target daily intake. 

 

  Protein Carbs Fat
Meal 1 47g 7g 2g
Meal 2 8g 8g 10g
Meal 3 37g 47g 22g
Meal 4 40g 34g 16g
Meal 5 30g 0g 0g
Meal 6 37g 47g 22g
Total 199g 143g 72g
