Calories, macros and delivery times booked! Now what?
Before I was even awake the next day, two FFF branded cooler bags were on my doorstep, and a menu sent directly to my phone. With one eye open, I had a flick through my meals on my phone and ran downstairs to tuck into breakfast. I quite optimistically opted for just shy of 4,000 calories a day and although this sounds like a monstrous number, over the course of my consultation, Meghan suggested I opted for liquid calories to give my jaw a break. And I’m so glad she did!
3,800 calories a day meant I was delivered 5 meals, 1 snack and 1 juice each day. The packages are neatly marked with ingredients on the side of the box and they’re also marked in which order FFF recommends you eat them in. But remember the plan is completely tailored to your goals, so whether its muscle gain, fat loss, or just improving your health through balanced nutritional meals, FFF will cater to you.
Personally, I thought having 15 meals over 3 days I couldn’t possibly continue to be surprised by food, I was very wrong. I’m first to admit my diet is pretty boring and could definitely do with some jazzing up; I’m the type of person that a could quite happily eat chicken and rice all day everyday! Never did I think, even in a crazy year like 2020, I would be sat in my pyjamas eating Tofu watching Christmas films at 3pm on a Saturday. But I loved it!
Now obviously, the calorie target that Meghan and myself came to is entirely personal to me, and much more than the normal person would need due to my high volume of training. My colleague on the other hand opted for a smaller number of meals with a target of 2,500 calories, and therefore received breakfast, lunch and dinner with 1 snack (and what a snack it was, Snickers inspired protein balls, a favourite!).
