MEAL PREP SUNDAY - 9th SEPTEMBER 2018 - 1400 CALORIES & 5 MEALS PER DAY
This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 1400 calories. The daily intake will be broken down into 5 meals, being breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner. This is a perfect meal prep plan for anyone on low calories and trying to lose weight!
The 1400 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 - 30/40/30 or 30% protein, 40% 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.
Each of the 5 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:
