Here is a picture of me on the first day of Week 1 (right) and on the last day of Week 1 (left).
I can tell a difference already in my clothes, and I have had people at work and friends already tell me I look smaller.
(I usually lose a lot my first week of dieting, I think drinking more water helps me look less bloated)
So far the meal prep has been amazing!
Joel (my husband) and I both agree that we haven't been bored with eating the same 6 meals for 7 days.
I think making sure that we prepare foods we already know we both like helps that a lot.
I really don't have any cons, so far it has been simple and easy, and I look forward to all my meals.
Prep day takes a few hours and you have to do about 3 or 4 loads of dishes, but I was already prepared for that.
Another con could be the start up cost of getting enough tupperware if you don't already have enough- but those are the only bad things I can think of.
I don't have to cook during the week, which saves me a lot of time.
I don't really have to do dishes (except on meal prep day), I just stick the tupperware in the dishwasher when we are done and then start the load when we fill the washer up.
I dont have to worry about making good decisions- I know right where my food is when I'm hungry and I dont tempt myself by looking anywhere else.
I'm not really hungry- I made 6 meals and snacks for us both per day, so it almost feels like you are constantly eating.
Favorite meal Week 1:
Mh: Breakfast! My light english muffin with my laughing cow cheese and tomatoes...
Joel's: Bbq chicken, brown rice, beans with goat cheese
Least favorite meal Week 1:
Mh: The carrots, bell peppers and cheese (I just don't really like raw bell pepper that much)
Joel's: One day he had to substitute his low carb wrap for an english muffin and he didn't like the english muffin very much
Keep meals that you are worried about going bad frozen until it's time to eat.
On meal prep day, CLEAN AS YOU GO! (always).
