Looking for new ideas for your weekly meal preps? You came to the right place! My hopes are these weekly meal prep posts will help you on your fitness journey. No matter how many hours you spend in the gym, without proper nutrition, you will eventually plateau. If you have ever wondered why you’re not seeing the results, you may want to look at what you’re eating. Sorry for the harsh reality check, but it’s easy to tell the difference from those with a healthy diet and those without. The good news is, once you clean up your diet you will be amazed with how quickly the results will come.
If you’re unsure about what “Meal Prepping” is check out my article called “Meal Prepping 101: Muscles Are Made In The Kitchen” for more information. Also, check out the WaterJugFitness YouTube channel for FREE meal plan videos and downloadable instructions. Lets get fit together!

Things To Note
These are just 2 of the meals I eat throughout the day. As noted, one is my post workout meal and the other is my lunch. I eat many other meals but these are the only meals needing prepped in advance. The other meals can just be made the day of or easily heated in the microwave. For example, my breakfast might be something like 2 packets of oatmeal and 2 tbsp. peanut butter. Or another example would be the Tuna sandwich I eat in the afternoon but again, it is just prepared when I’m ready to eat. Also, all of the calories are taken from My Fitness Pal, which for most part is very accurate but could vary slightly depending on who created the item.
