it's really about balancing the calories more than anything. Getting good ones and not empty calories for-example. Of course nowadays you can buy good semi-prepped food from hello fresh to fully-prepped factor delivered meals that are perfect serving sizes and nutrition out of the box.10
If you lower your calories on certain days, you can eat out and not get fat. My cousin will eat noodles at Korean restaurants and then go on a 2 day fast when she gains weight from parties.10
Not necessarily prepping. More like time managing when and what to eat and having time to prepare your food.0
What Girls & Guys Said
It entirely depends on what your goals are. The notion: "a calorie is a calorie" isn't true when you consider how your body breaks down food.
If your goal is to get healthy, yes meal prep is critical.
If you want to save money, yes meal prep is crucial.
If you just want aesthetics (better than average) then no, you don't have to meal prep.0
No, but if your problem is you eating a lot of fast food because you don't have enough time cooking, prepping for the week and just warming something up could be a way to go and cutting down on fat and sugar.0
No but it's important what meals you eat, but you don't have to meal prep0
No. Not crucial but it does save you time. Obviously eating a balance diet is crucial. Meal preparation isn't.0
No you don't have to meal prep to eat healthy.0
I do then have a bing after 2 weeks0

Not at all. You can eat mcdonalds and get toned if you want. Its a matter of efficiency and the main difference is in how you train and in that you eat everything you need. At its core it is relatively simple.
Now of course there is a level of toned where, lets face it, no one is natural anymore and you need to start putting things in your food. And that level is earlier than a lot of people seem to realize. But you can get very toned while eating (and maybe more importantly drinking) normally.
I don't even think Mcondalds is real food anymore so knowing this I'm sure it would just mess the body up these days lol
Yeah. But I figure between their entire menu it should still hit most of the important bits.
Back when I was in my late teens me and the muay thai group would often stop for mcdonalds after practice (a dollar or two being reasonable after all). And we were all very toned. But of course I am not recommending that. Just saying that you don't need to nitpick a lot if you are willing to put in an extra few hours for a different diet.
Yeah mcdonalds use to actually serve real food back in the day especially when I was a child, today I don't know what I am even eating it just never even taste right at all.
