Beautiful week here at MANvFAT UWA! Great catching up with all of you on Wednesday and inspiring as always to see you all putting in your effort on and off the pitch!
The final push… As we approach the end of the third season of MAN v FAT UWA, make sure we go the distance – a few of you are closing in on your 5% and 10% targets. Let’s not leave any stones unturned. Keep up the support, share your goals, update your team on the exercise you do through the week, look through the handbooks for any small changes you can make that ensure you’ll come away from this season with the result you want – and deserve.
To the next level… Continuing from last weeks post on maintaining your weight-loss and calorie deficits, this week I want to share with you a strategy which is to plan ahead and meal prep!
The advantages of meal prepping are that you control ingredients and quantities (i.e., the calories) – you know exactly what’s going in. Another added bonus is well-planned meal prepping can save time you could better use on other things, such as exercising. Meal-prepping doesn’t need to involve cooking bland food, and it can help prevent you getting tempted to eat those weight loss killers such as pizza or carbonara pasta.

Please remember that you don’t have to meal prep for every single bite you eat throughout the week. Maybe you prep for certain meals that you find are typically more ‘problematic’ than others, such as lunches and dinners through the working week.

Finally, in the last two weeks I have seen the competition heating up as we head towards the end of the season. However, do remember that while competition is good, the aim of the ‘game’ is all about weight-loss and having fun on the pitch. So do not let your competitive side get the better of you and hinder the enjoyment of your MAN v FAT experience!
That’s all from me this week! See you lads for another exciting night of match ups next Wednesday!
