The truth is, any meal expect noodles that takes less than thirty minutes to prepare is served in a box from your favorite fast food joint. This being incorporated in the very busy world that we live in is a recipe for fitness disaster. We can’t emphasize enough that a good body is made in the kitchen.

If you’re end goal is to embrace healthy living and a killer bod then here’s 5 reasons why prepping your meals in advance is important.

1. Portion control

Preparing your meals in advance assists you to plan on just how much you will consume during the week. This allows you to keep track of just how many calories you’re giving your body.

2. Clean eating

It would be a special kind of suicide to stock up on burgers for the week. Meal preps allows you to cut off on the French fries and franchise chicken that’s a coronary bound to happen. It will also keep you eating healthy when everyone else is munching on junk.

4. Enjoy cheat meals

When you’ve spent weeks stocking your system with greens and healthy carbs, you tend to find that one piece of pizza so exhilarating and what’s better? Your body will naturally react to the foreign food and reduce your appetite for the extra grease.
