Things you’ll need to get started:
Set aside about 3-4 hours aside for your first full week worth of meal prep. Pick a day that you have the least amount of stuff going on, maybe a Netflix and chill day.

How many calories do you burn while doing nothing? How about on your commute? If you don’t know how many calories you burn, how do you know how many you should consume?
Having an understanding of how many calories you burn throughout the day can help you identify how many calories you should consume in order to accomplish your goal. Eating too much can result in fat storage. Eating too little can slow your metabolism and result in muscle loss which is counter productive.
If you happen to workout do you know how many carbs you should consuming for energy? How many grams of protein you need to build muscle and lastly how much fat you need to properly absorb vitamins?
Identifying the appropriate amount of protein carbohydrate and fat requirements for your fitness routine can positively influence and even optimize your perfomance.
Totally optional but these might just be overall health game changers if used appropriately.
