Taking time for meal preparation is already a challenge, but when you are trying to lose weight, the idea can be downright overwhelming. That's why we created this comprehensive guide with the help of Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition. His tips will help you draw a menu; make a grocery list filled with fresh produce, lean protein and whole grains; and cook and distribute your meals in the way that best suits your goals. Over time, you will learn to design your own dishes and prepare the upcoming meals will become second nature. Let's start.
