A Competition-like Physique Demands Balanced Nutrition

Meal Planning 101: Eating for ‘The Look’

So, you’ve decided to sculpt your physique and adopt ‘The Look’ lifestyle. This endeavor extends beyond workouts and steps into the realm of your plate. Eating the right foods at the right time can fast-track your journey to a competition-ready looking body. In this blog, I will delve into the basics of meal planning for ‘The Look’.

Before diving into a meal plan, it’s crucial to understand that the road to a competition-like physique demands balanced nutrition and a proper understanding of macros (protein, carbs, and fats). Remember, the goal isn’t just weight loss; it’s about crafting a lean, muscular, and balanced physique.

The first step towards planning your meals is determining your caloric needs. These are dictated by factors such as your age, gender, weight, height, and physical activity levels. Once you’ve determined your caloric needs, the next step is portioning your macros. A typical meal plan for a lifestyle client might comprise 30% protein, 40% carbohydrates, and 30% fats. However, remember that each individual’s needs vary so could be flipped to 40% protein, 30% carbohydrates and 30% fats.

When it comes to choosing your food sources, always opt for whole, nutrient-dense foods. Your proteins can come from lean meats, fish, or plant-based alternatives. Opt towards complex carbohydrates like brown rice, quinoa, or sweet potatoes, although we do use jasmine rice and red potatoes at points in the meal plan as well.  Healthy fats can come from avocados, nuts, or olive oil.

Lastly, consistency is the key to achieving the ‘Competition Look’. A carefully crafted meal plan will only yield results if followed consistently.

In summary, the journey to the ‘Competition Look’ extends beyond the gym—it seeps into your kitchen. By understanding your caloric needs, partitioning your macros effectively, and choosing whole foods, you can fuel your body for success.
