My goals with this blog:

What I like to do is get a realistic view on dieting. Nobody needs to be super strict, unless a higher goal makes that necessary. If you want to step on stage in a bikini or speedo and look like you belong there you will have to get extreme.

But for most of us a happy medium is way more sustainable and that is what will get the results. If you plan to take it up a notch or two in the future you have established good eating and exercise habits and the discipline needed for these higher goals.

 

Keep a social life

You will see me mention burger, pizza, chicken wings, ice cream, pie, beer, other drinks and all the other tasty things. But also how to setup your diet, get your macros and create custom meal plans – while maintaining a social life!

 

I think when controlled it’s totally cool to have those fun meals. I would even go so far and say that the occasional junk will help you adhere to your diet. Don’t you think you would enjoy a diet more if you could still have fun meals with friends? If you would not feel like an outcast or worse: stop seeing your friends because you are dieting!?

Is that a nodding I see there?

 

You will read this many, many times on this blog because it so important: Adherence governs every diet known to mankind. Those who stick the longest to a diet are those who had the long-term success.

You will not find many recipes. Sorry for that!

Meal-Prep Benefits

Not sure if Meal-Prep is right for you? Let me change your mind!

Blog

Find the growing collection of articles, posts and guides all around meal-prep, meal-planning, dieting, habits motivation and more.

Introduction

New to dieting? No Worries, got you covered: Read my Introduction to Dieting, Meal-Planning and Meal Prep.

What can Meal-Prep do for You ?

Custom Macros, Custom Meal-Plan

Your very own, personalized diet. Designed with the foods you enjoy and the right quantities of Protein, Carbs and Fats so you can loose those pounds or pack them on – as muscle, of course!

But if you don’t enjoy the foods? How can you stick to a diet and let it work its magic?

(Not very much!)

But your personalized meal-plan can.

Build Good Habits

Consistency is king when it come to diet success.

Become the fit and healthy person and make it a long-term lifestyle change.

Building the habit of meal-prep ensures that your fridge and freezer are full of meals that support your goals.

 

Healthy Lifestyle

Cooking meals ahead doesn’t always have to be about loosing weight and being awesome in the gym or on the street.

Healthy eating means control over ingredients.

It’s about feeding your body with quality food, plenty of vitamins and minerals, boost the immune system and dealing with food-intolerance, allergies and diseases.

It’s about becoming, being and staying healthy.

Endless Recipe Ideas

Learn to create simples dishes and how to turn your favorites into their healthy variations that support your health and fitness goals.

Take any recipe you find online and make it fit your macros.

Safe Time and Money

Buy only what you really need and save your hard earned money.

Re-purpose foods and learn which foods (cooked and raw) stay fresh and tasty.

Buy in bulk to stock up your freezer and pantry.

The Bulletproof Shoppinglist

Put an end to the dreaded trips to the grocery stores.

With a shoppinglist filled with just the foods that you planned to eat you can be fast, confident and it’s fun, too.

No more wondering around and ending up in the ailses you want to avoid.

How does “One trip per week is all you need.” sound?

 

Fuel Your Life And Workouts

Gain the energy to live the life as you want it.

Working out feels great and we want to support that!

Many who start working out by going to the gym or running report, that they intuitively changed the way they eat.

They also reduced the amount of times they ate out and made healthier choices in general.

The right macro-setup fuels and recovers the body for any new encounters.

Control over ingredients

It’s no secret that “easy” foods are of low quality and packed with sugars and trans-fats.

They are fun on occasion and I include them in all my diets. But your base should come from healthy, high(er) quality foods.

Fresh vegetables, nuts, meat, fish, quality oil and herbs are the core of any sensful diet.

They are packed with vitamins, minerals and help you body function in its best way possible –  you don’t get those treats from microwave lasagna!

Kitchen-Skills

With just basic cooking skills and a few simple tools that you allready own you can get started right away.

 

Over time you build confidence

About Andreas

Andreas LPM

Family and friends call me Andreas, so I guess that is my name – feel free to use it!

 

I am the creator of this blog and happy you found your way around. Bet you wonder why someone starts a blog about meal prep or food prep?

 

Well, I like cooking and good foods, structure, numbers (whuat?), lifting heavy stuff off the ground and a bunch of other things.My girlfriend thinks I am nerd, but loves that I always care about jummy, healthy meals – and sometimes those not so healthy meals. We we are all human, let’s face it 😉

(Everyone is welcome – If you don’t feel like human, or if you aren’t human at all, doesn’t matter. Enjoy LPM!)

 
I will be talking about food on this blog A LOT, but also how to prepare it in a smart way.

About the stuff you do in the kitchen aka cooking. And plenty other topics.

 

How come you know this stuff?

Aren’t you a glasses and shirt wearing design engineer or what ever that nerd stuff is you do?

True, true, … But also :

    • Dad is a Chef and I always loved cooking with and learning from him.
    • 60kg @ 178cm to 85kg in 6 month. Where I found the hard way that lifting weights on a bad diet and a lot of calories only gets you fat -> The famous 1-pack!
    • Learned a lot about nutrion and how to create eating plans that work.
    • Can Deadlift 160kg
    •  Transitioned from fat to fit

On my journey from skinny to fat to fit I tried a lot of things. (GOMAD-diet anyone?)
But what helped most was a structured, planed way of eating and training.

 

Sounds like the standard fitness-dogma everybody is preaching:

 

“Eat less, move more!”

– Simple enough.

 

If you factor in time and food choices with a specific goal in mind, that’s when things get interesting.

 

I assume you are here, reading theses lines, because you want to get healthy and lose a few pounds on the way. You want to learn how to prep meals in an easy and smart way. You want to be timely efficient, have control over ingredients and their quality. You want to save money and – believe it or not – save the planet!

 

Okay, that’s a big statement. Got a little excited here, but there is something to it! Maybe I’ll get to that later….
