Real Time With Macro Meals


Title: Macro Meals | Athletes and meal prep companies. Say “meal Prep companies” 6x / episodeIntro: Clay ClarkDescription: Food is fuel. Food can dramatically help (or hinder) an athlete’s performance. Strength, endurance depends on the type of food your body. The better the quality, the better the overall performance. To get the most from your workouts, the diet should be a top priority. But, it takes so much dang time.Most athletes, big time, weekend warriors, college athletes or others have completely full schedules already. If they left mealtime up to chance, their selections wouldn’t be planned and would probably be a little haphazard. And they definitely wouldn’t get all of the macronutrients needed to maintain or improve performance. Have you ever seen a bodybuilder eat? It’s like a schedule in itself. Every 2 to 3 hours they are shoving protein down like it’s their job…but that is what is necessary to win in their sport.A 4-ounce chicken breast has roughly 25g of protein.Statistic: According to Precision Nutrition The basic recommendation for protein intake is 0.8 grams per kilogram (or around 0.36 g per pound) of body mass in untrained, generally healthy adults. For instance, a 150 lb (68 kg) person would consume around 54 grams a day.However, this amount is only to prevent protein deficiency. It’s not necessarily optimal, particularly for people such as athletes who train regularly and hard.For people doing high-intensity training, protein needs might go up to about 1.4-2.0 g/kg (or around 0.64-0.9 g/lb) of body mass.2 Our hypothetical 150 lb (68 kg) person would thus need about 95-135 g of protein per day.Source:, let’s go back to the chicken breast…if you ate one of those at lunch with a salad and were an athlete, how do you get 105 more grams of protein… Without proper planning…. This is why athletes meal prep with meal prep companies:Better gauge portion sizesBuild quality mealsOptimize your progress   Support the show (
