One thing that deters a person from prepping is the thoughts that you will lack satisfaction and interesting food choices. Day in and day out you’re eating that plain “Brody Diet” and feeling like the shred down is so far away. The next thing you know you’re angry, or should I say Hangry, for no reason at all. You turn into the she hulk and everyone in your path feels your wrath. Stop… Your prep is all wrong!
Lesson number 1, not one prep is the same. You will find some trainers trying to force you to do the same prep as another client they had and yes it might get the job done, but at the end of the day you might’ve had a horrible experience with it. Well, what you need to do is take control of your meal planning and research just a little bit more about what your body needs/ likes to get the results you want.
I have been competing for 3 years now and if I had, had someone save me from the “Brody Diet” lovers earlier, things would’ve been much more enjoyable. What did I do? I got tired of eating the same old foods over and over again. It had to be some other way to get more protein out of my breads and other enjoyable treats. So, I began experimenting and I can’t tell you how good it feels to be on prep.
It actually takes no extra time just a little more research. You don’t have to be the best chef in the world either. The only two things I’ve added to a recipe is Vita Wheat Gluten and Protein powder and like magic more protein added in carbs I already eat, which means less meat. If your trying to compete and transition to a vegan or vegetarian diet this is definitely helpful. Also, learning what other foods are protein packed, such as peas, broccoli and beans (the magical fruit, the more you eat…), will also help with protein intake. Get outside of that prep box and into your kitchen? Get you some Red Mills Vita Wheat Gluten and protein pack your foods.
