MEAL PREP SUNDAY - 7th OCTOBER 2018 - 1800 CALORIES & 6 MEALS PER DAY

This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 1800 calories. The daily intake will be broken down into 6 meals, being breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack, post-workout and dinner.
  
 
The 1800 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 - 30/45/25 or 30% protein, 45% carbs and 25% 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 28% 45% 27% 100%
Calories 512 808 495 1815
Grams 128g 202g 55g

 

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 - XO Crunch cereal and Almond Milk
  • Morning Tea - Carrots and Hommus
  • Lunch - Turkey Fried Rice
  • Afternoon Snack - Nice & Natural Protein Nut Bar
  • Post-Workout - Protein Shake
  • Dinner - Turkey Fried Rice

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

 

  Protein Carbs Fat
Meal 1 6g 51g 5g
Meal 2 10g 37g 12g
Meal 3 40g 51g 13g
Meal 4 6g 10g 11g
Meal 5 26g 2g 1g
Meal 6 40g 51g 13g
Total 128g 202g 55g
