Build your meal plates
We have explained why we use different meal plates but here we are going give you a simple step by step guide to how to build your meals and use your nutrition guide more effectively.
We use a balanced meal to provide a balance of macronutrients. This has to be portion controlled as eating high amounts of fats and carbohydrates at the same time is not advised.

PROTEIN + VEG + FAT
A common issue we see with people is not eating enough vegetables. Bulk your meals out with veg is essential to flood the body with nutrients and fibre alongside providing satiety to the meal. If you only have a small amount then you can -

b) under eating calories and micronutrients
Using these meals at certain times can really help with recovery and overall health.
