Perfectly balanced with protein, carbohydrates, and fresh vegetables, these meals are not only delicious, but will also help you achieve your goals whether you’re looking to lose, gain, or maintain weight. Dr. Kalman is sharing the macronutrients in our high-protein meals so that you can choose which ones are best for you. Take a look below to learn more!
What is a macronutrient?
Any time you hear “macronutrients,” this is referring to the breakdown of carbohydrates, protein, and fats in your food. Counting macronutrients can be very beneficial for building muscle or burning fat. Calorie counting is also very important, but calories don’t always tell the whole story. That’s why it’s important to know how many carbs and how much protein you’re ingesting when prepping meals.
Dr. Kalman’s breakdown of the macronutrients in our meals is as follows:
- Abs of Steel: ~700 calories; ~60% protein; ~40% carbohydrates; trace fat
- Pro Galore Stir-Fry: ~700 calories; 54% protein; 55% carbohydrates; trace fat
- Leaned Out: ~450 calories; 59% protein; 35% carbohydrates; ~6% fat
- Beefed Up: ~500 calories; 55% protein; ~43% carbohydrates; <5% fat
- Turkeggzelant: ~650 calories; 65% protein; 25% carbohydrates; ~10% fat
As you can see, the breakdown of protein, carbohydrates, and fat varies from meal to meal. While the calorie count is similar on several, the macronutrients in our high-protein meals are different all across the board! See our full menu and order online here.
